[SOLVED] Mouse settings for Crunchbang

I used Crunchbang along time ago on an old computer, i'm gettung back into it, i remember what i loved about it.
I've got Crunchbang on my laptop but one thing i cant find, the two finger scrolling on the touchpad is working fine but the tapping the touchpad to make a selection, or tapping the pad as a left mouse click.
I'm sure the settings are here somewhere, just cant put my hands on it...

Any advice?

Re: [SOLVED] Mouse settings for Crunchbang

^ See 'man synclient' for all the settings

I would guess at "TapButton2=1", ie a 2-finger tap = Button1, which is usually left mouse button.

Re: [SOLVED] Mouse settings for Crunchbang

^ You can upload images to an image hosting service, then post the thumbnail url here.

Did you read 'man synclient'? Also see: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics

Get your current settings with

synclient

But you don't need to post images for this, just C&P any terminal output using [ code ] tags. Eg the output of the 'synclient' command, and the command you are using to set the Tap. Please include all output, including error messages.

If this is a fresh install, then why not use BunsenLabs? Crunchbang is years out of date, and can't be updated any more.

The default is very similar. Try a Live session and see.

Re: [SOLVED] Mouse settings for Crunchbang

Sources - sources.list and backports details

sudo apt-get update

NB Try searching for answers first (this is a super-basic command). Also before asking questions, have a look at "Menu -> Help" where there are lots of links and helpfiles wink

ffty. You should, just from a security viewpoint. BunsenLabs is 99% Debian jessie, the current Debian stable release, which gets security updates and is pretty much the most stable Linux system available. CrunchBang is out of date and unsupported.
