I just upgrade from Ubuntu 17.04 to 17.10 and I struggle finding how to disable "tap-to-click".
On previous resales i use this code
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-to-click false (process:6941): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: The connection is closed
but here it won't work.
I also check system dialog, and Ubuntu Tweak, no luck there is not option to disable it.
I tried Google answer but don't get working solutions, any leads to solve problem would be great Regards
I have the same problem. For a workaround, I use two scripts to turn the touchpad on and off:
# from ~/bin/s0 synclient touchpadoff=0
# from ~/bin/s1 synclient touchpadoff=1
When I'm annoyed by the cursor jumping around from hitting my palm, I
Ctrl+D. When I need the cursor again, I run
I'm sincerely hoping for a proper fix as well! I had better palm detection and the ability to disable tap-to-click on Ubuntu Gnome 17.04.
Right, so to disable this behaviour I tend to run:
#Disable tap to click synclient MaxTapTime=0 #Disable drag synclient TapAndDragGesture=0 #enable palm detection synclient PalmDetect=1
To make it stick we can add a desktop file to ~/.config/autostart Such as "touchpad.desktop":
Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Touchpadset Icon=Icon Exec="synclient MaxTapTime=0 && synclient TapAndDragGesture=0 && synclient PalmDetect=1" Comment=Set touchpad options Categories=Login Terminal=false
This should keep working until ubuntu switches to libinput.
