Enlightenment DE - Touchpad Settings - Where? [Solved]

Postby llewellen » 2018-05-29 00:38

When installed, Enlightment DE 22 does not have "tap to click" enabled for the touchpad.

The Enlightenment maintainer on Manjaro says that the applicable file is in
Code: Select all
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf
but I can't find the equivalent file in Debian. How to enable "tap to click" in Debian/Enlightenment? Thank you.

I eventually did find it here (with some guidance):

/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf

I inserted the suggested script and now "tap to click" is working fine. Thanks for the help.
