Hello. I'm having a pretty annoying problem. I can't seem to disable clicking on my laptop's touchpad. I went into the Gnome mouse settings, but the Enable mouse clicks with touchpad option is checked and grayed out. I have also tried to edit my xorg.conf, but there is nothing in it! Lastly, I've tried to edit 10-synaptics.fdi file, but that didn't do much.
I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my HP Envy 14 (first generation) laptop (first time installing Linux which is why I'm in this forum). The touchpad is giving me problems. Although basic functionality such as clicking and right clicking work, higher functions such as multitouch and (most importantly) disabling the touchpad while typing do not work.
Can you guys tell me how to enable clicking in touchpad, the side scrolls are working out of the box..In gnome touchpad setting it is enabled but doesn't work....I am using a Dell Inspiron 1525Thanks in advance...:)
Okay, here's how I did it, it's really easy apparently.sudo vim /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf# Example xorg.conf.d snippet that assigns the touchpad driver# to all touchpads. See xorg.conf.d(5) for more information on# InputClass.# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE, your distribution will likely overwrite# it when updating.
These days many laptop devices come with a touchpad that have sensor next to them.
By double clicking these sensor (or single clicking on some of them) the touch pad is disabled until the sensor is double clicked again.
copied the same 50-synaptics.conf which I use on 14.0 thinkpad T410s to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d on my thinkpad x121e where I installed 14.1.
but it does not work on the x121e, I can turn the touchpad off with synclient,
but I can not scroll with the red pointstick + middle button
also, acceleration when I press the red stick does not work, on both
does anyone have a useful thinkpad touchpad/synaptic
