Hi, I made new feature in synaptics driver for xorg
(xserver-xorg-input-synaptics) and I want share it to all.
briefly: option to flip x and y axis.
When I turn screen to portrait or upside-down with xrandr, then using
touchpad is very difficult. I add one user parameter to tell synaptics
that screen orientation is not normal.
Result: It doesn't matters what is the orientation of the screen, when
I move my finger from left to right the mouse pointer will move from
left to right.
I do not use tapping, circle scrolling or two fingers things, so I do
not know will they work or not with this patch. I have tested it only
There are four scripts that I use (mnemonic for values)
xrandr --orientation right
xrandr --orientation normal
xrandr --orientation left
xrandr --orientation inverted
