Thank you! I tried XFCE version on my eee-900a and promptly replaced/re-installed with CrunchBang Statler because of this very issue. I like the idea of a Debian base, but not at the expense of my work flow.
If CrunchBang can fully enable my trackpad, why can't the LMDE releases? Is it Squeeze vs Wheezy? If I change my sources to Wheezy or Sid with Crunchbang the trackpad tap and scroll still works after a dist-upgrade, so why not Mint?
The keyboard/mouse settings app that I wrote for Fluxbox basically issues a string of terminal calls to adjust settings as opposed to using the kernel API and remembering those settings with a session manager like virtually every other desktop environment. Last time I checked, neither Gnome nor Xfce had built-in functionality for tap-to-click. Ubuntu turns it on by default while Debian does not. I'm not sure what steps #! took in this matter, but I personally prefer it to be on by default as does the majority of other laptop users I've run into.

When you tap the trackpad on a laptop and the system registers it as a click.
