Title: Enable touchpad "tap click" by default

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Partner organization:

It seems in SUSE 11.3 the default setting was changed so that the
touchpad no longer accepts tapping to click. At first I thought I had a
driver issue or something was messed up.
This is silly since everyone expects tapping the touchpad to result in
a click, not to be ignored. One of the issues I think people have
coming over to linux or even seasoned users such as myself is annoying
or silly defaults. Right after installing SUSE I go through and change
a load of settings, obviously much of which is user preference, but I
have to be believe most settings I change to what people expect.
Regardless enabling tapping on the touchpad is something we need.

BTW, how do you change the setting?

make sure you have ksynaptics installed. Then go to systemsettings,
input devices, touchpad. :D

Installed 11.4 just yesterday and was annoyed by this throughout
installer and during initial run. This is just a plain bad default...we
shouldn't disable expected functionality. Should be simple to change.

+ also a closed issue that requested the reenabling of the tapping that
+ you might consider voting on :
