I've upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10 but the ability to tap with three fingers on the touchpad to achieve a middle mouse click has disappeared. When a mouse is plugged in the middle button click works exactly as expected.
I've tried similar approaches to: Swapping the double and triple finger tap actions on trackpad and using
$ gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse middle-button-enabled true but still nothing works.
I'm using an asus ul-30a which is typically well supported under linux. I'm using gnome-shell but the problem also occurs when using unity.
Could anyone advise how to fix the triple tap please?
EDIT: I've also tried installing the kde package synaptiks and setting the button functions and this also has no effect
