laptop touchpad - how to disable 'tap to click'??
I've installed Suse 10.0 on my Compaq presario R3000 laptop and am trying to get it configured how I want it. However, the Touchpad is driving me up the wall!

I only have to keep my finger on for a second or scroll past things and it is 'left-clicking' all the time. i have turned this function off in Windows as i just can't get on with it, but in Linux I can't see how to do this. It is driving me mad. I've used Yast but although I can try different mouse configurations, i can't find a way of turnng off the left clicking.


Any help greatly appreciated.

i'm not sure if the Compaq presario R3000 uses the synaptics touchpad.
but if it does you can disable the tap feature by setting "MaxTapTime" to "0" in either
/etc/x11/xorgconf or /etc/x11/xfree..conf. (whichever you use)

see here:

good luck :)

WOW - Thank you SO much deroB. I did as you said and I have disabled the tap to click thing! Yippee!!!!

The link was great, but as you suggested, all i had to do was change the "MaxTapTime" value to zero.

Thank you.
