How to configure Two-Finger Scrolling in openSUSE KDE to behave the same way like Apple MacBook

Two-Finger scrolling in openSUSE – KDE has same default configuration like Windows 10 on Lenovo. This configuration came from old days when users were using only mouse to navigate on the web. When using touchpad it’s natural to expect that it would behave similarly to a tablet or Apple MacBook. Apple made the switch in the direction some time ago to make it more natural. For some reasons developers keep the old style on Linux and even on Windows. Luckily it is possible to change the configuration very easily.

Go to System Settings and click Hardware – Input Devices

Select Touchpad from left pane, Scrolling from the tabs and check option Reverse scrolling – Vertical. Then click Apply.

How to configure Two-Finger Scrolling on Lenovo notebook to behave the same way like Apple MacBook

2016-11-21 Update for Windows 10

Mac users are familiar with Two-Finger Scrolling feature. You can place two fingers on the mouse track pad and you’re able to scroll content on the screen. Since Mac OS X 10.6 Apple changed direction of scrolling to match gestures used on tablets or phones. It’s interesting that for more than decade scrolling was done in opposite direction. When you swiped down then the content was scrolling up. Many users were confused after switch, but it quickly became natural.

Lenovo notebook has also support for multitouch gestures and scrolling by two fingers. The only problem is that default installation, behave the same way like old Mac OS. It’s reversed. When you need to switch between Mac and Lenovo then it’s quite confusing. Fortunately it’s possible to configure it just by few clicks.
