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, 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.
