Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We reported earlier on a blog post entitled "Ubuntu Report Card (2009)" where the author detailed how they felt the Ubuntu experience had improved over the years. In a follow-up series of articles looking at the future, Tanner Helland has written 10 different broadly-scoped feature requests that [he] 'and many others would like to see by the time Ubuntu 10.10 rolls around'.

Yeah, I really, really hate tap-to-click. I forget how I finally turned it off, but I eventually did.

I bet your problem is that psmouse driver is conflicting with synaptics driver.

You may benefit from following low-tech hack:

It will save your skin at least when typing.

To disable tap-to-click on touchpad (MaxTapTime), you need to create or edit /etc/hal/fdi/policy/shmconfig.fdi and add the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<device>
<match key="input.x11_driver" string="synaptics">
<merge key="input.x11_options.MaxTapTime" type="string">0</merge>
</match>
</device>
</deviceinfo>
