[SOLVED] How Can I right-click with my Touchpad?

Hello Everyone,

I have looked everywhere in the system but can't find the option. I just need to know where I can find the option to change it.

My external mouse is behaving weird (probably dying). Usually on Ubuntu or Debian I am able to right click on my Touchpad by either tapping two fingers on the touchpad, OR touching the bottom right corner.

Currently this does not work, How can I enable this on Bunsenlabs?

Sorry If this has been asked before. I couldn't find it.

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] How Can I right-click with my Touchpad?

Change the synclient invocation in Openbox' autostart file to (or add the options to the list)

synclient TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2 ClickFinger2=3 ClickFinger3=2

This will produce a right click when either tapping with two or physically clicking with two fingers, and produce a middle click when tapping with three or clicking with three fingers.

You can run the command in the console to apply the settings immediately.
