Thread: Enabling touchpad tapping (synaptics)

  1. #1

    Default Enabling touchpad tapping (synaptics)

    To all those who hit this after installing 11.3:
    Enable the tapping function of your touch pad by adding

    Option "TapButton1" "1"

    to

    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-synaptics.conf

    then restart X (relogin). It will work with all WMs for which SuSE didn't bother to add a GUI config function/utility (xfce, WMaker, twm/fvwm, etc).

    To SuSE: WHY?????? Why is this disabled by default? Why has a system/HW function to be enabled at WM level?? Why only KDE/Gnome?
