Will one finger touch scrolling be a feature in a future update of firefox for linux?

Posted

I just installed mint 18.3 and I'm still pretty green. I know there's a solution but I can't understand it.

_______________________ Enable touchscreen gestures

Make sure dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled is either set to 1 (enabled) or 2 (default, auto-detect).

Add MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 DEFAULT=1 to /etc/security/pam_env.conf and then logout or reboot your system for the changes to take effect.


_______________________

I'd like to know what this means (sorry for being dum), otherwise I wouldn't mind waiting if there's plans to add scrolling in future updates.

Firefox is probably installed in "/usr/lib/firefox", so if this is the file to start Firefox then try:

#!/bin/sh

export MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 DEFAULT=1
/usr/bin/firefox

You can use a bash script to start Firefox and add the line to use XINPUT2 to this file.


#!/bin/sh

export MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 DEFAULT=1
cd <path to firefox srcipt>
./firefox

I wish I knew what that meant, haha. Don't worry about helping me, it'd take too long for me to learn.

Sorry to bother you, but I've been trying to do the bash script, this is what I've done, I know it's not correct, but I would appreciate it if you could guide me in the right direction from here.

The code I posted needs to be in a text file (e.g. firefox-touch), so you can open a (plain) text editor and paste these lines in the file. You need to use the chmod command or a file manager (properties) to set the execute (x) flag for the file.

When you start Firefox by using this file then the environment variable will be set.
