Frustrating trackpad

I also updated the trackpad firmware to no avail.  Any other suggestions to make the trackpad more usable?

Also, when scrolling using two fingers, the direction seems unintuitive to me.   I'm used to the trackpad on a MacBook Pro (but I think I may have also reversed the scrolling direction there).  Any way to reverse this on th PineBook?

Hi! Have you tried this: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebo...d_settings ?

I was disappointed with my PBP touchpad at first, but after setting the driver to synaptics and tweaking the setting as described on the wiki, it actually became usable.
