But the machine I've installed it on is a dell inspiron N5030 which has one of those lovely little trackpads and I cannot figure out how to disable the tap-to-click function, which means I am constantly creating false-positive mouse clicks (I did three just while typing this paragraph, argh!)
Doing some searching, most of the solutions to this problem involve customizing xorg.conf which I believe is completely deprecated now. So I can't use that!
A little info:

Now first of all I was a little worried that LMDE is not recognizing my mouse as a touchpad and is treating it as a generic PS/2 mouse and when I run gpointing-device-settings I see only "generic PS/2 mouse"
So, how can disable the annoying tap-to-click function without using xorg.conf? Will I need to first convice linux that i REALLY REALLY do have a touchpad and not some PS/2 mouse? If it thinks I have a generic PS/2 mouse then why is tapping working at all!? HALP!
