I've got an ASUS 1015PN that I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 from 11.04. On the latter version, I had three finger tap support for my touchpad, which I'd mapped to a middle mouse click. However, once I upgraded, this capability no longer works.
I've done a fair bit of web (and soul ) searching, all to no avail. Now you might ask yourself why I care so much. Well, until this capability was taken away, I've forgotten how much I use all of the taps for the various mouse clicks.
Finally, fwiw, I've looked in all of the usual suspect places: /var/log/syslog and /var/log/Xorg.0.log with everything seeming normal, and running the command synclient, which reports that a tapbutton3 should report a middle mouse click. I've also checked this with utilities like evtest and xev to see that, no matter what I do, I only get 'Button1' X events when I do a three finger tap.
I'm now at my wits end, and I simply cannot believe that I'm the only person worldwide that's experiencing this behavior.
Can anyone out there in Ubuntu-land offer any suggestions?
Many, many thanks in advance,
