I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on an Acer C7 chromebook with chrubuntu. Overall, it works very well, but there is one minor problem. I would like one finger for left click, and two for right click.
I can achieve this easily with the following commands
synclient TapButton1=1 synclient TapButton2=3 synclient TapButton3=2
However, after reboot (or closing/opening the lid), when I query synclient, the settings are as follows:
TapButton1 = 3 TapButton2 = 1 TapButton3 = 0
This is an odd and undesirable three-finger left click! This persists, even though I have added the following lines to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf
Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "TapButton2" "3" Option "TapButton3" "2"
I've tried adding the synclient commands to correctly configure the touchpad to /etc/rc.local, but it still starts up incorrectly. The only workaround is a script that sets up the touchpad correctly, which I run everytime I re-open the lid. It works, but not the most elegant fix for an otherwise excellent system
Any idea how I can make the touchpad configured correctly at startup, or re-opening the lid? Thanks
