Latest Updates broke tap to click on touchpad
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After the latest updates on Unstable today (kernel/xorg-driver-input-libinput/libinput) and a reboot I am no longer able to tap on my touchpad to simulate a click.
I have a Dell Inspiron and the default touchpad so technically everything should be supported.

After running

xinput set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Synaptics Tap Action" 1

It works in Hexchat and Plank. But I think I disable libinput with this.
In i3 to enable libinput a few weeks back I used:

xinput set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "libinput Tapping Enabled" 1

But this now returns:

property 'libinput Tapping Enabled' doesn't exist, you need to specify its type and format

But it used to work.

After running

sudo ln -s /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/60-libinput.conf

and a reboot it now works again. Only in LightDM its still not wokring but it was like that before iirc

So the priority of libinput is too low?

What else is in that directory..?
