This is something I cannot still understand but it seems that GNOME and
also KDE guys have decided to disable that option by default while I
found it the natural way the user expects the touchpad behaves (→ you
tap, you click) :-?
In GNOME this can be easily enabled from touchpad settings (under mouse
options) so in KDE there must be something similar.
To enable it also at login (KDM/GDM) there is another setting of X server
you need to tweak (ask if you are interested in this because I don't
remember the exact option right now) :-)
