After upgrading from 21.10 to 22.04 my Tap-to-click setting is no longer respected.
I like the setting disabled, yet tap issues clicks. Tested by very light taps on the top of the touchpad, which does behave as if I had depressed the button area.
Would like ideas for what else to check for misconfiguration.
The configuration seems correct, as per
Device: PIXA3854:00 093A:0274 Touchpad
Seat: seat0, default
Capabilities: pointer gesture
Tap drag lock: disabled
Middle emulation: disabled
Scroll methods: *two-finger edge
Click methods: *button-areas clickfinger
Accel profiles: flat *adaptive
libinput-tools/jammy-updates,jammy-security,now 1.20.0-1ubuntu0.1 amd64 [installed]
Linux 5.15.0-40-generic #43-Ubuntu
What is the DE?
If there are settings configured on the user level, they will override the system settings. Check mouse/touchpad options in system settings (in the GUI), or dotfile configs in your home folder.
That is a good point. I forgot to provide that bit of info. I am using Gnome on X11.
I did check before posting the gnome settings and both the UI and dconf have the tap-to-click as false. A quick grep yielded nothing relevant. Any additional ideas?
$ egrep -rIin 'tap.to.click' .[a-zA-Z]* | grep -v bash_history
$ echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
$ dconf read /org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/touchpad/tap-to-click
$ gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad | grep tap
org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-and-drag true
org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-and-drag-lock false
org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-button-map 'default'
org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-to-click false
I switched to Gnome on Wayland and now the setting works as expected.
I did have quite a bit of instability on Wayland where the session would crash occasionally, which was resolved (so far) by :
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock show-mounts false
As for the X11 solution this is what did it for me was to create the following in
Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
Option "Tapping" "off"
The key part was adding:
Option "Tapping" "off"
This does allow for the setting pane to enable Tap-to-Click (WIN!)
I had spoken too soon about the Wayland instability.Another source was (still with dash-to-dock) when both “Show window preview on hover” and “Show tooltip on hover” are on, as I started noticing the Wayland crashes also clustered around the cursor hovering on the panel.
