Is gpointing-device-settings in Ubuntu 16.04?

I cannot find it in apt-get. It is in 14.04.

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

It is not in the repos for 16.04 but it is available on launchpad

Install from the .deb with

sudo dpkg -i gpointing-device-settings_1.5.1-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb

Solution 2

Don’t install it, it works just the very first time and don’t work after reboot gpointing-device-settings lost on reboot

Better use workaround like this:

Use xinput commands, as explain in the response of the link above.

Solution 3

Yes it is available. You have to enable the “Universe” repository in your package management settings or by uncommenting the lines for the universe repo in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

However, it doesn’t seem to work well and it crashes constantly.

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
