Hello all,

I recently acquired a rebuilt acer aspire 5736z for work.  w00t!  But, even though I went to synaptic and got the ultra-super-sexy drivers they had for "all touchpads" and got to the point of having a device tab, it's either not seeing it right or it's laaaaaaame.   It only lets me config left and right click. I literally cannot work with tap to click enabled, is the main point.  HELP!

Thanks, Pete

verify if all drivers are installed for your laptop (in device manager) - or update them
select the proper OS, and use the touchpad driver from this page
