I have an HP Stream 11 and my touchpad will not accept right mouse click or click/hold/drag (like to reposition a window) any help would be great.

  1. Copy /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
  2. Add Option "ClickPad" "true" inside the first InputClass section.


  • I do not have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ what next? – Billn Jess Brown Dec 30 '15 at 17:55
  • Then create it is would assume – Trevor Clarke Dec 30 '15 at 17:57
  • Copy the file into the /X11 directory, then rename it – Trevor Clarke Dec 30 '15 at 17:58
  • Tried, the /etc/x11/ will not allow me to create a new folder (thanks for your patience) – Billn Jess Brown Dec 30 '15 at 22:54
  • dont worry! However there is no need to make a folder..... you should have the X11 folder there already simply do: sudo cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ then do sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and add the line of code – Trevor Clarke Dec 31 '15 at 1:51
