I have quite a strange problem.
My sister upgraded her Lubuntu yesterday to 14.04 and everything went alright. After some reboots though (she said she hadn't done anything except for messing with the look and feel settings) the tap-to-click on the touchpad suddenly stopped working. Scrolling works alright.
What I've done:
- Checked the mouse options. Everything was fine.
- Logged in as guest. Tap-to-click worked just fine.
- Put in the line
Option "TapButton1" "1"into the inputclass section of
50-synaptics.conf. After rebooting/logging out nothing has changed.
synclient tapbutton1=1. That works in the current session.
- Put in the
xorg.conffolder a new configuration file.
Still, I wasn't able to fix the problem permanently. I couldn't find any other solutions apart from the one described in 3.
I would be really thankful for any suggestions :)
