Trackpad tapping?

Post by mastermind16X »

How do I set Mint to register a tap on the trackpad as a left click? As of right now, tapping the trackpad does nothing.

Which desktop environment are you using? For Cinnamon (maybe also Xfce) that's under System Settings - Mouse. For KDE use System Settings - Input Devices - Touchpad. Then you can configure the touchpad there.
