enable tapping on jwm
« on: March 03, 2015, 08:59:38 am »
In openbox autostart add:
# enable tapping:
synclient VertEdgeScroll=1
synclient HorizEdgeScroll=1
synclient TapButton1=1

For add it in jwm startup?

## Detect and configure touchpad. See 'man synclient' for more info.
if egrep -iq 'touchpad' /proc/bus/input/devices; then
    synclient VertEdgeScroll=1 &
    synclient TapButton1=1 &
fi

??

Way the go 0day nice necrobump.

Those options mentioned by you 4 years ago do not work anymore, because Debian no longer use synaptics driver as default input driver. Your options are 1) install synaptics driver to make them work or 2) install sparky-libinput which will activate tap to click for your.
