I am trying to get my touchpad tapping working correctly. I am running mepis 6.5 and i have the xserver xorg installed along with ksynaptics 2.4.2. The touchpad works correctly and I am able to adjust all the settings except when I set  one finger tap to the left mouse button and it still wont work. I have to tap with 2 fingers to lmb click. Any ideas on how to get it to work with one finger for lmb click?

    Accepted Solution

    You could look at the options in "synclient" (synclient -l is the command) and see if there is something that can be adjusted about the touchpad sensitivity.
