[SOLVED] Right click on touchpad doesn't work

Hello everybody !
I've just installed bunsenLabs and I have a little problem. As I wrote in the subject, I can't use the right click button of my touchpad. I tried to set up with synclient, but it doesn't work because this tool seems to set up the touchpad itself, not the buttons. I also use a Logitech mouse, which works really good.
With LinuxMint, on the same laptop, I haven't got this problem, but with a live session of BL, the problem occurs.
My question is : where can I set up the buttons of the touchpad ?

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7548, 64 bit, 16G Ram, 1To HD,  Intel Core i7-5500U, dual core 2,4 GHz with the last version of bunsenlabs.

Thank you very much for your answers !

Try with xset (mouse options) - see `man xset` for the usage. Put the working command in your autostart.

`xset -q` will give the current settings

Re: [SOLVED] Right click on touchpad doesn't work

Please post the output of:

egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps' /proc/bus/input/devices

You have Broadwell (Skylake?) hardware so you may have to try a newer kernel version from the jessie-backports repository.

https://wiki.debian.org/Backports

Which kernel version is your Mint system using?

uname -a

“Et ignotas animum dimittit in artes.” — Ovid, Metamorphoses, VIII., 18.

Thanks for your answers !

@ Head_on_a_Stick :

egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps' /proc/bus/input/devices

It copy/paste this, but it does nothing...

For the kernel version of Mint, I remember I've changed it to 4.0, but I will put your command when switching of OS to be sure.

@ damo

The mouse options in xset are only threshold and acceleration : I didn't find options for clicks... I've tried to change xmodmap settings, but the problem is that the right click button of the touchpad is recognized as the left click...

I think you should try a newer kernel version in BunsenLabs as well.

Here is a guide I prepared earlier:

Re: [SOLVED] Right click on touchpad doesn't work

Well, uname -a gives that :

Linux philippe-Inspiron-7548 4.2.0-18-generic #22~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Nov 6 22:20:11 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ok, I'll try to change my kernel in BL too with your guide, and I'll give you news.
Thank you very much !

I have a little problem actually to change the kernel : my computer boots on Grub2 made by LinuxMint, and I can't change the kernel. I'll see that and I give you news.

Just update GRUB from your Mint system wink

I'm not sure what the exact command is though...

EDIT: Looks like it's:

sudo update-grub

Re: [SOLVED] Right click on touchpad doesn't work

Sorry for answering so late, I was very busy last days... But thanks for your help, because it works perfectly ! Unfortunately, with the last version of the kernel, wi-fi is disabled... Well, let's resolve this problem !  big_smile
