Touchpad tap = right click (left handed) [SOLVED]

Postby SilvioTO » 2017-12-18 19:15

Debian 9.3 Xfce.
Acer Aspire V3-372 series.
40-libinput.conf in folder /X11/xorg.conf.d with this content:
Code: Select all
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "libinput"
        Option "Tapping" "on"
EndSection

All work perfect after reboot, until I configure, from xfce, the left handed option for the touchpad. Now the touchpad tap act as a right click.
How to solve? Thanks.

I am not 100% sure what you want to do?
Switch buttons?

I need to configure the touchpad for a left handed person.
To enable the touchpad "tap to click" feature, I must created the file mentioned above, with the right options.
At reboot, tap to click work fine, but I need, for my friend, to make the touchpad left handed. To do this, I open xfce mouse configuration and select left handed buttons option. Doing this, tap to click stop working, it is now "tap to right click".
I need the touchpad for a left handed (with reverse buttons), but a normal tap to click, and not "tap to right click".

Code: Select all
 Option "LeftHanded" "on"

Is this what you want?
