Gnome 3 touchpad click sometimes doesn't work

I selected this "enable mouse clicks with touchpad", but it only works sometimes. Is there any way I can make it work all the time? It's annoying.

I find if I use the right side of the touchpad it isn't as effective because the right side is meant to be the scroll. If you use the right side adjust your usage habits and you will be pleasantly surprised.

I didn't think about that. Unfortunately, the touchpad is offset to the left and I'm right handed. I think it is recognizing clicks better now that I'm paying attention to it though; thanks!
