    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 lts Hp touchpad right click problem

    I've recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit and the problem with the right click on my HP Probook 4520s touchpad reappeared (like it happened in the upgrade to Ubuntu 11.04 in last April and the next upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 in last October).

    2. Put the following lines in 51-clickpad.conf

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Default clickpad buttons"
    MatchDriver "synaptics"
    Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"

    #Next 3 items added just for the HP Mini to better control the clickpad

    Option "LockedDrags" "1"
    Option "BottomEdge" "4000"
    Option "AreaBottomEdge" "4445"


    3. Logout / Login for changes to take effect.
    The above-mentioned instructions worked.
    Thanks VideoRoy.
