View Full Version : [F9] Synoptics Touchpad

5th June 2008, 11:10 PM
I can't seem to get the tap-to-click to work. For example on the Windows side of my laptop I can tap on the pad 2 times and reads it as a left click. On Fedora it won't do that. Please help. Thanks.

Hello uncholowapo

Tapping on the touchpad is disabled by default in Fedora 9 for some reason.

This thread details the modifications you need to make to reinstate it.


If you find it doesn't do all that you hope then you may have an Alps touchpad which requires you to go through a few more hoops.

Post back if that's the case.

I can confirm that it is Synaptics. Thank you for the post. I am installing the package that was suggested later in the thread since I am a novice (not noob) I still haven't got the expierence the modify system files (yet). Thanks again!
