Changes to Pointer Speed do not have any effects on my touchpad

Dear all,

I have been playing with the Point Speed settings but they do not have any effect on the touchpad of my Thinkpad X230.

Could you advise me please how I can change acceleration and sensitivity otherwise?



if you use synptics drivers :
if you use libinput drivers :

Also under wath tab you are ?

Thank you for your links.

I guess I am more wondering why the Mate settings do not take any effect on my touchpad.

Do you know why?

Solved by disabling interfering configuration files:

$ sudo mv /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-thinkpad-touchpad.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-thinkpad-touchpad.conf.bak

$ sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf.bak
