Here is what worked for me, to enable 'tap-to-click' and vertical scrolling on my Dell laptop with Synaptics touchpad:

Edit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf, add 2 lines
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"

so that it looks like:

Code: Select all

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
EndSection

the 'touchpad' tab still doesn't appear in the mouse config GUI, but at least the touchpad is working the way I expect it.

Thanks for the advice akela.
I hade actually already tried this, setting the TapButton1 option to 0 instead of one (I want to disable it).
But neither is the tap-to-click feature disabled, neither does the vertical edge scrolling work. (this last feature is not important to me, but it's still a system that the driver is not engaged as it should).

Upgrading to Update Pack 4 solved the problem for me. Finally!
