I thought so too. I was wondering what the DE agnostic way of enabling tapping would be though. I use gnome, and the "mouse" utility does this for me. However, when folks on other DEs, such as XFCE ask me how to do
it, I don't quite have an answer.

Could someone please outline the correct way of enabling tapping and
other options (for instance horizontal scrolling, two finger
scrolling..) on various DEs ? 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 take
up changing defaults with them.

$ synclient TapButton1=1 is to enable touchpad clic

Maybe add this on all DE,

LXDE spin by adding these two lines to


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.
