Even if each DE has a specific way, please can you post with what it is? I can compile the information on a wiki page to aid users, with relevant links to upstreams if they want to takeup changing defaults with them.$ synclient TapButton1=1 is to enable touchpad clic -- Álvaro Castillo http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Netsys  Linux user #547784Maybe add this on all DE, WM...et LXDE spin by adding these two lines to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf: Code: Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "RBCornerButton" "3" Could problem solved?
The correct place to put the file would be /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d , not /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d . User/admin customization always goes in /etc. The /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d directory exists for any distribution packages that want to ship xorg config snippets, it shouldn't be used by sysadmin/user.
So instead of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf you should create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf . Other than that, I think the advice is good.
