Ubuntu :: Natty 11.04 Touchpad No Tap-to-click?

May 18, 2011

So my Natty install is finally starting to come together, internet works, I'm getting used to the new Unity interface, and well everything seems under control. Now there are just a few issues remaining. The most annoying for now is that there is no tap-to-click on my netbook's touchpad (and in the list of features I think they mentioned several other interesting new things with the touchpad).The other thing is that I can't open Synaptic from the menu/application list. It works from the terminal, though,

Ubuntu :: Found That Two Finger Tapping Touchpad Has Gone From Middle Click To Right Click?

May 1, 2010

I'm newish to the forum, but have been using ubuntu for the past few months.I recently upgraded from eeebuntu (a 9.04 derivative) to 10.04, and found that two finger tapping my touchpad has gone from middle click to right click, (and 3 fingers is now middle instead of right).

From what I've seen, this has been changed since 9.10, but I haven't been able to find a permanent solution yet. Most fixes have been from before and use hal, or other things that don't exist anymore. The one thing I've found does work is using xinput and the command

xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Synaptics Tap Action" 2, 3, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3

But that has to be run every time I start up, and it occasionally reverts while I'm using the computer. I've tried making a script that runs at startup, but neither adding it to the list of startup programs, or autostart folder has worked, but running the script file manually does work. I'm a bit at wits end with this, it's the only issue I've had with 10.04, and I've spent many many hours trying to get it to work (I've also tried gsynaptics and the newer version whose name escapes me right now). Hopefully there's a permanent fix out there.

Ubuntu :: Middle And Right Click With Touchpad (10.04)?

May 11, 2010

I use middle click much more than right with my Asus EEEpc 900, so I prefer to use it with two fingered tap. Default configurations for multiple finger taps are 2 = right and 3 = middle. I got this reversed with this guide ("Make middleclicking work in Firefox again...":[URL] but after an update it doesn't work anymore. I tried to install the .deb again, but Ubuntu tells me that the system already has a newer version of it.

P.S. If only we'd get this configured straight from the GUI of mouse settings like the scrolling options...

Ubuntu :: Right-Left Click On Touchpad?

Jun 30, 2010

I finally got 10.04 installed and I am loving it so far! Very quick! But I do have some nuance 'problems'. Here is one for I can not find a solution. In previous versions of Ubuntu, I was able to click on my touchpad with two fingers that replicated a right-left click to open a link in a new tab. Now it raises a popup menu in the browser asking how to open the link.

I have tried this in Chrome, Opera and Firefox and have the same issue in all browsers, which leads me to believe this may be a Gnome setting. How do I change this behaviour? There was nothing in the mouse preferences to change this.

Ubuntu :: Touchpad On Pavilion Dm4 - Can't Right Click

Nov 28, 2010

Excuse the horrid formatting, this was copy/pasted from the #ubuntu IRC and to be extremely honest I can't be bothered to remove every space. I have a Pavilion dm4 and it has two areas on the bottom of the touchpad to designate right and left clicks. This mostly doesn't work on Ubuntu in the fact that it recognizes any taps on either tap zone as a left click. Instead, I have it set so if I tap anywhere on the pad it makes a left click. There should be, and there are, many ways in the mouse configuration window to simulate a right click using only a touchpad. None of these work. Changing mouse orientation doesn't do anything, "dwell click" also does nothing,

and, the oddest part of this problem, whenever I try to turn "Simulated Secondary Click" off (it doesn't work anyways, but just to try to toggle it), the entire theme of my desktop changes to a gray Windows '95ey look. The only way to get rid of this is to close and reopen the mouse preferences window.My computer is fairly new and the Ubuntu installation is less than a day old. I didn't do anything that I think could cause this. The problem is that I can't right click. Afterword: I installed two scripts from [URL]. They didn't do anything I couldn't already do, and they did not make it possible for me to right click.

Hardware :: 9.10 - How To Disable Tap To Click On Touchpad

Feb 17, 2010

I'm on a new netbook using Ubuntu 9.10 and I cannot figure out how to disable tap-to-click on my touchpad. I figured it would be simple enough to use SHMConfig, however; every post I've seen says they have something similar to this in xorg.conf

Code: Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
EndSection Instead, I have this ...

Code: Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
End Section

I have tried simply changing the driver entry to "synaptics," however when I run SHMconfig it says the driver hasn't been loaded.

Slackware :: Unable Tap To Click On Touchpad?

Just installed Slackware 13.1 and I'm trying to disable tap to click on my touchpad. When I run "synclient MaxTapTime=0" it turns off. But the next time I restart X, the settings won't hold. I tried putting Option "MaxTapTime" "0" in xorg.conf, but it didn't work. This is my mouse portion from xorg.conf generated from the nvidia driver from slackbuilds.

Ubuntu :: Disabling Touchpad Tap-Click On Login Screen?

Dec 30, 2010

I am loving my Ubuntu machine, but there's a slight annoyance that I can't seem to disable. Is there anyway to disable the tap-click on the touchpad of a laptop while on the login screen? I do not want to disable the click from the button, but rather when you gently tap it with your finger. The options for it in the Control Center doesn't seem to disable it during the login screen.

Slackware :: Not Able To 'click' With Touchpad After Installing Nvidia Driver

Jan 2, 2011

After compiling the kernel and re-installing the Nvidia proprietary drivers, my touchpad has started to act strange; the cursor seems to glide a lot faster, yet more erratic and when I try to hover over an icon the cursor wont stay still, furthermore I lost the ability to 'click' on anything using just touchpad.

I have checked dmesg and Xorg.log for any clues, as well as removed everything with the exception of the card and device section from my xorg.conf. The issue has nothing to do with compiling the new kernel, as it was working perfect until I installed the Nvidia driver.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Simulate Left Click On Touchpad (tapping) - Configure?

Oct 22, 2010

I have acer aspire one netbook with synatics ps2 touchpad. It works fine, but I'd like to emulate left button by just pressing somewhere in the touch area (same as it works in windows or ubunntu). I think this is called tapping. How can I configure that? I have been in touchpad settings and management, but I have not found any checkbox helpful. In OS 11.3 I need to press left button next to the touchpad.

General :: When Switch Buttons In Synaptics Touchpad - Tapping Gives A Right-click Menu

Jan 23, 2010

I work on a laptop and typically have a USB mouse plugged in. Each time I start an X session, I switch my mouse buttons with an: Quote:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"

If I decide to unplug the mouse and work with the touchpad, I must always reverse the options again to pointer = 1 2 3, or else, while the right and the left button still work as a left-handed mouse, tapping, instead of acting like a left-click, gives a right-click menu. My touchpad is listed as:

'ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad'
using the evdev driver.

I admit that I haven't played much with alternate xmodmap configurations, but I'd like to sort this out. It's even more confusing since I don't have a xorg.conf and, if I manually add one, despite having tried repeatedly, I can't make X-server to read it.

The relevant part of lshal output: Quote:

udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/platform_i8042_i8042_AUX3_port_logicaldev_input'

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Synaptic Touchpad In 11.3 - Strange Behaviour With Dragging And Middle Click

Jul 19, 2010

One strange and little annoying issue I notice with my openSUSE 11.3 installation is my Synaptic touchpad behaves way too strange.... Dragging a window or icon - half way around - a click is generated (probably a middle click I guess) and I need to re-drag it again.... In the browser when I try to select a text - again by dragging - a middle click gets generated... The same happens when I use gvim in visual mode too - I end up pasting the code I had selected halfway because of the middle click....

Middle click can be generated only if I press both left and right click buttons - which I'm pretty sure I'm not.... I tried playing around with the touchpad settings but no good.... I'm not able to find anything related to the middle click on the settings application... My touchpad works fine in Ubuntu and was in 11.2 as well.... Yes it works fine in Xp too.

Ubuntu :: Touchpad Stops Working After Pressing The Touchpad Toggle Button

May 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS. My laptop is an HP Pavilion TX1210AU (TX1000 series). After disabling the touchpad using the toggle button and reenabling it again, it stopped working. I tried restarting my laptop and the mouse worked again only up to the Login Screen. After logging in to my account, the mouse froze again. I tried making a new account and tried logging into it (I'm using it now) and it's now fixed. Does Ubuntu change any user settings everytime the touchpad toggle (on/off) button is switched? Maybe I could just reenable it myself.

Ubuntu :: Single Mouse Click Registering As Double Click?

Mar 13, 2010

About a week ago I installed some updates. What they were I don't remember. After I did that my mouse started acting up. Now about half the time when I single click it registers as a double click. Also when I click and drag to select text anywhere it'll randomly do another click screwing up that process.

So far I think the problem is when I press the left mouse button it registers the left click and then when I release, it randomly registers another left click.

The mouse itself works fine if I take it to another PC that's using windows.

OS: Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
