I was very happy with the touchpad management in 3.x and thought that could simply be 'transplanted' into 5.0. Now I see it's more complicated than that, barring some input from Bodhi developers. Your fix sounds easy enough to try, and then one could see how many capabilities, if any, it gives the touchpad -- beyond simply responding a tap.

@RonCam: Examine the current touchpad settings with
Code:
xinput
Using the relevant device ID (or name) run
Code:
xinput list-props <device_ID>
Report back here with that output.

If necessary, a custom touchpad file with 'Option "Tapping" "on"' can be used to ensure 'tap-to-click is enabled persistently. For example /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf...
Code:
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "touchpad"
    Driver "libinput"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Option "Tapping" "on"
EndSection
Refer the man page for more info...
Code:
man libinput

BTW, it should also be possible to run the following to get the current settings (for all input devices)...
Code:
sudo libinput-list-devices

no problem It just does not work for me. the main issue re: trackpads in 5 is that i cannot scroll with one finger but i have to use 2 fingers to scroll. I also see no settings for any of this. i am getting used to the 2 finger scroll salute. Other than this issue i have nothing bad to say re: bodhi 5!
