Ensure to delete any cached sources before upgrading from 1.19.3.

Also, import the upstream signing key; only simple way I can think of right now is via the following (requires curl and jq of course):

curl -sS 'https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/api/v4/users/20572/gpg_keys/530' | jq '.key' | xargs echo -e | gpg --import -i -

Not sure what is going on here, even after importing key as outlined in below comments:

PGP keys need importing:
 -> 772183A93E722C0CD301BE62872C444A692EF9A5, required by: libinput-three-finger-drag
:: Import? [Y/n] y
:: Importing keys with gpg...
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No data

It is also requesting to remove libinput, which is probably not a good idea.

I also bricked after upgrading, as luigibu and chumariesco state. My Xorg logs are:

...

After downgrading to xf86-input-libinput 1.2.1-1 and reinstalling using the same PKGBUILD, functionality is restored. Hopefully the maintainer can update the package. This package is really great!

Restoring libinput via chroot saves the freeze produced by updating to xf86-input-libinput 1.3.0-1, as @luigibu indicates. I downgraded later to xf86-input-libinput 1.2.1, then reinstalled this package and three finger drag is working again :)

downgrade command: sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/x/xf86-input-libinput/xf86-input-libinput-1.2.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Thanks to the developers and maintainers, this is an essential feature for me.

This package will block your system if you update xf86-input-libinput to 1.3.0-1 So, if you wanna keep using this... just avoid this update. If you already did it, to fix your enviroment boot from live usb, mount your root partition, chroot the mounted partition and do: pacman -S libinput You will be asked to remplace libinput-threee-finger-drag.. just chosee Yes.. restart your system.. you are done.

This works amazingly well. Thanks for packaging it.
- Install, reboot -> works out of the box
- enables to 3-fingers drag items (of course)...
- ... but also enables selecting text with a 3 fingers drag

This is great!

sway-1:1.8 / wlroots-0.16 require libinput-1.21

Until this package is updated, versions of sway/wlroots that work with libinput-three-finger-drag can be installed from the archive:

pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/s/sway/sway-1:1.7-9-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/w/wlroots/wlroots-0.15.1-7-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
