Proper way to get natural scrolling and double finger right click.


I have Debian 9 Stretch and lxqt-core installed on to it.

I want to get natural scrolling and double finger right click to work, but I'm not sure what is proper way to do it.

In most cases, make sure you have the xserver-xorg-input-libinput package installed, and not the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package.
I have xserver-xorg-input-libinput installed. Should I still make changes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf?

Code:
$ egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps|elan' /proc/bus/input/devices
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"

Code:
Option "VertScrollDelta" "-111"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "-111"
