Recently purchased a zenbook UX303UA (i5 / 8GB RAM / 256GB SSD) and installed ubuntu 16.04.

I'm having a problem with horizontal scroll. Horizontal scrolling using the touchpad appears to work as you'd expect in chrome, file explorer, and I tried LibreOfficeDraw too. But in bitwig, no joy. I've discovered the Alt-VerticalScroll workaround, but it's a poor substitute for the two finger gesture.

Is this a known issue? Anything I can try here?

Thanks!

If you're using the synaptics driver and horizontal two-finger scrolling is working for you, could you post the output of synclient -l ? Maybe it'll help me identify a setting I can change.

fwiw: I've switched to libinput. results are the same.

Does anybody experience working horizontal scroll under ubuntu?

By the way when using Alt+2Finterscroll to scroll horizontally to the left Alt+Scroll for changing the focused window gets triggered and switching the active application. This only happens when using the touchpad and when dragging 2 fingers up which should scroll to the left. If I want to scroll right by dragging 2 Fingers down (while pressing Alt) it works as expected.

This makes dragging clips, devices,... around almost impossible with the touchpad. Thanks a lot, Martin

Thanks for the response. That matches my experience perfectly: Alt+2FingerScroll just switches the application, so it's useless. I have done a fair bit of googling to figure out if I can disable the Alt+Scroll to switch application shortcut in ubuntu/unity, and it does not appear to be possible. So that's all a big bummer.

I switched from unity to LXDE, and I'm much happier. LXDE uses openbox, which controls all the shortcuts and is completely configurable. Alt+2FingerScroll works fine (It would still be much, much better to use horizontal 2FingerScroll), and I had to disable a couple other mouse-related shorcuts (e.g., alt+drag was interfering with pitch bend). It's pretty bare-bones, so if you're used to unity it'll probably feel like a step backwards, but it makes bitwig work better, and that's the most important thing for me.
