I have a modern clickpad in my laptop, and its been confusing right clicking with it on linux. Right clicked worked in 10.04 and 12.10 versions of ubuntu. I am a long term ubuntu user now moving to crunchbang and so far i love it. my only problem is the right click. the system recognizes my clickpad as one entire left click button. so when i try to right click, it works as a left click. is there any solution to this problem?
also, how to disable touchpad when im typing?
I'm trying to get my hp mini 210 clickpad to work as well.. no right clicking, no drag+drop.
I've managed to get the broadcom wireless and broadcom crystal hd card working with archbang, everything works snappy and great...
But the clickpad issue remains.
I tested some settings with synclient and managed to get drag+drop working but I didnt save the settings and havent reproduced it yet unfortunately.
Would really like to figure this out..I've tried modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf:
# Example xorg.conf.d snippet that assigns the touchpad driver # to all touchpads. See xorg.conf.d(5) for more information on # InputClass. # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE, your distribution will likely overwrite # it when updating. Copy (and rename) this file into # /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d first. # Additional options may be added in the form of # Option "OptionName" "value" # Section "InputClass" Identifier "touchpad catchall" Driver "synaptics" MatchIsTouchpad "on" MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*" Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "TapButton2" "2" Option "TapButton3" "3" Option "Clickpad" "1" Option "EmulateMidButtonTime" "0" Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0" # This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be # enabled by default. See the following link for details: # http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html # MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*" EndSection
I've read maybe upgrading the kernel helps, mine is 3.2.0-0.bpo.4-686-pae
I've read the xorg synaptics driver is the culprit as well..
I ran: egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps' /proc/bus/input/devices
which tells me my clickpad is: N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
Anyone get this working?
I was able to fix it - above is the link for the steps I took.
