Re: synaptics vs libinput and GNOME 3.20 no longer supporting synaptics
I don't know if this as a feedback from a user helps. If you login GNOME in Wayland session, the touchpad settings comes back to the control panel. I have been using GNOME on Wayland for several weeks and nothing is bad.
Probably making Wayland the default GNOME session is the simplest (but impractical, probably) solution to this?

Upstream rejected the request. At the same time, someone pointed
out that KDE supports libinput. Russel Stuart in
<[🔎] email@example.com')">[🔎] firstname.lastname@example.org> told us that LXDE supports
libinput as well. I checked the git history of XFCE and also
found indication that libinput was supported.
I don't know about others DE, but I believe that we're sufficiently
covered here with GNOME/KDE/XFCE/LXDE to be able to go ahead with the release of
xserver-xorg-input-all dropping the synaptics/evdev driver.
