The NC10’s integrated Synaptics Touch Pad works out of the box in CentOS 6, both under GNOME and KDE. No drivers or patches requried.
But I remember that when it was running Windows XP I could “tap” the pad instead of clicking the dedicated key (that loud CLACK noise annoys the neighbours). How can we bring this behaviour to CentOS?
A quick serach reveals this post by Russel in the CentOS forum:
his suggests that a configuration file needs to be created somewhere. However I found that there’s an easier solution which – at least on the NC10 – works with just one click. I assume this will work for other latops too:
- head over to System – Preferences – Mouse
- select the Toucpad tab at the top
- tick the box “enable mouse clicks with touchpad”
- works instantly
