FreeBSD have recently introduced xorg-server-1.20.7, which uses UDEV. This has apparently rendered "Mouse and Touchpad" settings for synaptics touchpad unusable on FreeBSD.
Workaround to set properties through xinput is described on FreeBSD forum:
I have opened PR in FreeBSD Bugzilla, I got the reply to report it here:
Any chance to make "Mouse and Touchpad" settings manipulate xinput on FreeBSD, or restore functionality in some other way?
Thank you in advance,
