I installed lxqt desktop and the installation went fine, but after reboot the desktop became unresponsive. I could click the menu icon or any other icon, but the icons didn’t respond. I googled and I found a solution to this problem by creating a 40-touchpad.conf file; by putting it in the the /etc/X11/xor.conf.d folder the problem was solved - rebooted and everything was fine.
But I didn’t like lxqt, removed it from the computer and installed the budgie desktop. The installation went fine. But I ended up with the exact same problem - unresponsive desktop. I tried the same trick by putting 40-touchpad.conf file in the /etc/X11/xor.conf.d folder, but this time the trick didn’t work.
I enabled wayland in /etc/gdm/custom.conf file to see it might help but no impact.
I have no idea what else can I do to make it work.
