    making "synclient" settings persistent

    I use:
    synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2

    in order to allow me to use three finger press as a middle-button click on my ASUS UX31A ultrabook. I got this tip from various posts.

    I tried to make this persistent and automatic by including it in the "Startup applications" but it is not working. Furthermore, if I run it from a terminal, it stops working if I close the terminal window.

    I do not understand why I have this problem and how I can make it automatic?

    Thanks,

    Turgut

    What exactly did you use as command in the startups?

    Just this:
    synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2

    Do I need to give full path?

    No, that should work ok. Can you try something like this
    Code:
    bash -c 'sleep 10; synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2'
    That should insert a delay of 10 seconds before the command.

    Thanks. That works. I guess something was clashing somewhere but I can't tell what.
