So, I was using Fedora 31 on KDE spin for a little while, and I installed Synaptics for the touchpad, and when I finally tuned the setings, it worked really nice.
Now I went back to Gnome, an when I installed Synaptics again (new system install) I do not get the system settings that I got on KDE, even thou I installed the same packages, I still get the same Gnome settings for the touchpad.
So is there some other packages that I am missing? or synaptics behave different on every DE ?.

This is a Xorg driver. Its settings only related to Xorg-sessions. Gnome uses Wayland by default. But your can try out Gnome’s Xorg-session:
dnf search synaptic

xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-devel.i686 : Xorg X11 synaptics input driver

xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-legacy.x86_64 : Xorg X11 synaptics input driver
(Red Hat (IBM™) is abandoned Xorg, because this is the time for “something completely different”.)
OMG! so obvious, I did not think of that !!! hahaha,
anyway, I switched to Xorg and now I have zero settings for touchpad, it disappeared ! haha , I mean the touchpad works, but there are no settings for it. not on Xorg; which is even weirder,
So thanks, now I know what I am dealing with.
lol indeed, maybe it is time to do some desktop hopping, see what I find.

You seem to continuously be bashing Fedora in a slight of mind way. If you don’t like Fedora, why are you here?

Show your love to Fedora and help TS out with Grubby, as your promised:
I’m deed. “Read the man! It’s rather huge, and actually, TS’d asked for a ready solution, step-by-step. Or just reinstall it!” – your being silly.
