[opensuse] Amazing: touch screen just works :-)

I just installed Leap 15.0 on a new, cheap, and small laptop machine that has a touchpad and touchscreen («Lenovo Yoga 300-11IBR», 11.6"), and the touch screen just works out of the box, both in gnome and Xfce.

Ok, pressing buttons in a tiny screen with fingers is not sufficiently precise, but moving a page in firefox with the finger turns out to be faster than using the touchpad.

Although in xfce or gnome touching and moving the insides of the firefox window selects text, not moves it. I have to touch the sliding bar. Still...

I'm gladly surprised :-)

Of course, none of the desktops seems optimized for "tablet mode". Windows does have it but I have not tried. It was in Windows where I saw the utility of moving the inside of the firefox window.

Maybe that is configurable in Linux?

In xfce mouse settings I see two entries: the default one is "ATML 10000:00 003EB:8C3C", whatever that is, and the other is "SynPS/2 Synaptics Touchpad". Both seem to refer to the touchpad.
