    Maybe your libinput settings are messed up. These gestures should work without any configuration required.

    My out of the box Fedora gives me 4 finger swipe up/down to switch virtual desktops, so I know this isn't true.

    Your frustration is hilariously relatable. Though, I think I managed to keep it off the couple of Windows systems I use. I haven't seen it in a long while.

    The more the fingers, the greater the pleasure.

    I have seen some of these touchpad issues on the lower end Lenovo Ideapads as well. Any improvements are very much appreciated.

    For a second I thought that some hardware company voluntarily resigned from creating third-party drivers with integrated bloatware/spyware applications (so called "telemetry"). For example these all icons in Windows tray menu that are duplicating system functions (third-party app for touchpad, third-party app for GPU, third-party app for soundcard, etc.)...

    I very glad that Linux is free from this bloatware/spyware. In Windows it is real plague - especially that Microsoft started promote and install these bloatware packed "drivers" even without user knowledge via forced Microsoft Update services...
