Touchpad Reverse Scroll (Natural Scroll) in Lubuntu 14.10

This article shows how to enable natural scroll in Lubuntu 14.10. It only changes the touchpad behaviour, while keeping the mouse scroll button’s function.

Modify this file: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics-conf

In the first section, Section "InputClass"

Add the following line, Option "VertScrollDelta" "-30"

Save and it will work the next time you log in.

In the mean time, you can try in your terminal, synclient VertScrollDelta=-30

The closer VertScrollDelta is to 0, the faster it will scroll.

    1. I don’t run a Lubuntu any more;
      while it depends on your touchpad,
      it’s likely it should be under the
      Section “InputClass”
      Identifier “touchpad catchall”
      Driver “synaptics”
      Put the additional lines right above the end of the section.
