Xfce4 SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Linux Mint 18 - Tap to click not working?

20 July, 2018 | Linux

In order to have a nice tap to click under Xfce4 in Linux Mint 18.X

CallĀ ls -l /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/*libinput* to identify exactly the file (as in 90-libinput.conf). Then make sure you have added the last two lines below and then logout/login.

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "libinput"

        Option "Tapping" "True"
        Option "NaturalScrolling" "True"
EndSection
