Re: Squeeze on a EEE PC 901, trackpad problems



Thanks Guido, that works great. I thought it would be something at that level but had no idea where to find it.

Also thanks to the other posters who pointed me to the wiki and the manual.

Best regards,
Bob

Hi,

I had the same issue with my EEE 701. I had to change the config file
for the synaptics module
(/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf). Here's how I have it
now:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    Driver "synaptics"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Option "TapButton1" "1"
    Option "RBCornerButton" "3"
EndSection

The two option lines specify left-click on single-finger tap and a
right-click when tapping the right bottom corner.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
Guido

I just installed Debian with the Xfce desktop on a EEE PC model 901.
I've got things working pretty well, but I can't enable tap-to-click on
the trackpad.  I go to Settings->Mouse in the Xfce menu, and there is no
tab or checkbox for tapping.  I'm guessing I need to enable something in X?

(I just barely know what I'm talking about) I've run Ubuntu Linux
before, but that was preconfigured.  I have never tried to set everything up
myself.

Thanks, Bob
