Hi, I don't read all thread , sorry I'm repeating someone , but I use
synclient to configure my touchpad.

I have a simple script that I run in my home user, when I lose my
configuration, which is just after a systemctl restart
udev-trigger.service, not often neither after reboots

synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1
synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=1
synclient -l | grep -i scroll
synclient VertEdgeScroll=1
synclient HorizEdgeScroll=1
synclient -l | grep -i tap
synclient TapButton1=1
synclient TapButton2=1
synclient TapButton3=1
