Fix touchpad tapping with Elantech devices and others

By | 2011-12-21

I got a new Asus EeePC netbook that has an Elantech touchpad device installed. It works out of the box with my Debian GNU/Linux installation, however the tapping is not working.

To make it work again you probably have to rebind the TapButtonX settings that are set to 0.

Add it to your session start-up file for persistence. Also check out gpointing-device-settings for various touchpad options.
