Maybe add this on all DE, WM...et
LXDE spin by adding these two lines to
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "RBCornerButton" "3"
Could problem solved?
The correct place to put the file would be /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d , not
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d . User/admin customization always goes in
/etc. The /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d directory exists for any
distribution packages that want to ship xorg config snippets, it
shouldn't be used by sysadmin/user.
So instead of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf you should
create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf . Other than that, I think
the advice is good.
