Horizontal touchpad acceleration much faster than vertical

asked 2017-08-06 16:12:22 -0600

I am running Fedora 26 on wayland (although switching to xorg or Ubuntu, including older versions, does not fix this problem). The touchpad is practically unusable because of how skewed the acceleration is. This is the output from libinput-list-devices:

Device:           AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint
Kernel:           /dev/input/event5
Group:            10
Seat:             seat0, default
Size:             102x29mm
Capabilities:     pointer 
Tap-to-click:     disabled
Tap-and-drag:     enabled
Tap drag lock:    disabled
Left-handed:      disabled
Nat.scrolling:    disabled
Middle emulation: disabled
Calibration:      n/a
Scroll methods:   *two-finger edge 
Click methods:    *button-areas clickfinger 
Disable-w-typing: enabled
Accel profiles:   none
Rotation:         n/a

Is there some way that I can either: 1) Manually adjust the horizontal//vertical acceleration 2) Fix the size reported by the touchpad (that is obviously incorrect), assuming that this will fix the problem

I fixed the problem with a patch to systemd:
