How to get touchpad tap to work?

Hi all,

I think the title says it all, How to get touchpad tap to work?

In every other distro that I have used, tapping has worked by default, how to enable it on #!?

Thanks. smile

A forum search is a handy way to get an answer, especially for a question as common as this one  tongue (top right of page)
A good wiki here: Touchpad Synaptics

Get touchpad settings with

synclient -l

You probably need to set

synclient TapButton1=1

and add it to autostart if it works

Re: How to get touchpad tap to work?

autostart is the script that runs when you start Openbox window manager. You can open it for editing with

geany .config/openbox/autostart

or via the menu with Settings -> Openbox -> Edit autostart

I'd recommend making a backup copy of config files before changing anything!
