Okay, I really hate the tap-to-click option (it is enabled by default) for the synaptics touchpad driver (Synaptics TouchPad driver for X.Org/XFree86 server).
I found that there was a GUI settings application, gsynaptics, and I installed that. It does not work, however, and spits out the following error:
GSynaptics couldn't initialize. You have to set 'SHMConfig' 'true' in xorg.conf or XF86Config to use GSynaptics
No biggy, I think so I go to edit xorg.conf, and there isn’t even a section for the touchpad. This is the entire contents:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file) # # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using # values from the debconf database. # # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page. # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.) # # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only* # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg # package. # # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings # here are ignored. # # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated # again, run the following command: # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" DefaultDepth 24 EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "fglrx" EndSection
So what exactly us wrong? Can I just add a new section or something?
I am using Xubuntu if it matters.
