I have just installed 9.10 on a tablet and noticed that when i 2-finger click my touchpad, I get a left-click. Now I do not see the use for this, the excellent use for the two-finger click is to be able to copy and paste. Hence I wanted to reactivate that feature.
I know that hal is the way to do things in this era, so I try to do it the hal-way. In /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/ there is an example fdi and in the man pages for synaptics it says how I should activate this.
My fdi file is (/etc/hal/fdi/policy/11-x11-synaptics.fdi)
my guess was that 3 is the middle button, however according to the man pages, 0 disables 2-finger tap, but still using two fingers gives me a left click.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
<merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
<!-- Arbitrary options can be passed to the driver using
the input.x11_options property since xorg-server-1.5. -->
<merge key="input.x11_options.TapButton2" type="string">3</merge>
So, what is wrong with the fdi file? Can anyone help me on this?
Just a side question. Restart hal is all I need to do when I edit an fdi right (# restart hal)? I have rebooted to make sure, but I would like to know if this is enough.
