- First step: using instructions from this tutorial. During installation, you have to say “yes” a lot of times, so it’s not possible to just run it and go do something else, which is a bother.
After rebooting, I found out that the touchpad taps are no longer working as mouse clicks. Googled around and found this. But my check mark was on, and besides my settings window looked different (perhaps cinnamon haven’t been updated completely?), so I googled some more and found this.
As it is adviced in the second article, I used dbconf-editor. Had to install it first, but apt so charmingly takes you every step of the way, my grandmother could do it.
marina@marina-home ~ $ dconf-editor The program 'dconf-editor' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools marina@marina-home ~ $ sudo apt-get install dconf-tools marina@marina-home ~ $ dconf-editor
Then I found the touchpad section in dbconf-editor window and checked the settings I wanted.
