touchpad doesnot click on tap

by Nimish Bansal   Last Updated January 12, 2018 22:02 PM

My mouse left click,right click works fine but cant tap to click. So I tried

synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2

The error says Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?

I also tried to install synaptics-package-manager and was able to achieve the result like tap on click and scrolling but at the cost of my keyboard. When I enable xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-hew16.04 it prompted to uninstall the following four packages as in the image the package prompted to remove these 4

Was able to achieve mouse tap on click but lost the ability to type I have ubuntu desktop 16.04 LTS installed on my Lenovo ip320E
