TouchPad configuration


I want to configure my touchpad so that tap to click is disabled. Actually, the only options I care to keep are the ones for scrolling, but I really need to get this tap to click disabled.

Ive been trying for hours. Machine is a Toshiba AC100, which has a Tegra2 SoC (ARM based) running Ubuntu 10.10. Ive messed with some stuff already so any advice please keep that in mind. For example, I created a xorg.conf file and threw it into /etc/X11 . Ive un installed, and then re-installed Synaptics.

Thanks for any help

Have you tried System/Preference/Mouse, Touchpad tab, and unchecking that box?

You said you're running Ubuntu. It should be there.

Are you sure the touchpad is Synaptics? What does "xinput list" show?

I don't see Synaptics mentioned there, which means the Synaptics driver isn't seeing a compatible touchpad. I did a quick search, but can't see any mention of the model of touchpad the AC100 uses.

Looks like you may be out of luck when it comes to custom configuration, since the touchpad is just emulating a standard PS/2 mouse with a wheel, X doesn't even know it is a touchpad.
