Howdy all!

New(ish) Linux user here, hoping that this is the distro that will give my netbook the vim and vigor it has so far lacked!  I'm not oh-fey with the command line but willing to follow instructions and learn smile

Speaking of which I wonder if someone can tell me:  how can I enable mouse clicks via double tap of the touchpad?  I checked the wiki and it was only for changing buttons?

Anyhow, thanks, and good to meet you all! smile

Re: Howdy all!

Hello there, ever and welcome to the site!

If you use your menu to edit openbox's autostart, you should be able to set the tapbutton option to 1.  My touchpad settings in autostart:

## Detect and configure touchpad. See 'man synclient' for more info.
if egrep -iq 'touchpad' /proc/bus/input/devices; then
    synclient VertEdgeScroll=1 &
    synclient TapButton1=1 &
fi

Re: Howdy all!

Welcome aboard, eversilentone, and glad you're finding CrunchBang to your liking.

As for your question, it's funny but there's a lot about turning the double-tap off in the forums -- if you go to that magnifying glass in the upper right, you can do a search (I already did, which is why I know that) -- but nothing that I could see about turning it on. A friendly suggestion: If you could ask that question in the forum under Help & Support (Stable), you'll get someone who might know about it.

My guess is that it has something to do with changing your synclient setting, but I don't know for sure. Someone with a wider range of skills here would (EDIT: Like schwim, above), though. And rather than having them find it in your intro, the question would get wider coverage if it were reposted. big_smile

<voice="Bill_Lumbergh">So if you could go ahead and post that question in the forum, that'd be great.</voice>

Those are the same settings as mine - noob question, but how do I change it to '1'?  I tried deleting the '&' but that didn't seem to make any difference?

Thanks too!  big_smile  Your suggestion makes sense!  I just thought there would be a simple 'clickk here' option that I'd missed, but now I see it's slightly more involved than that I'll post elsewhere smile
