Knoppix touchpad click workaround

Problem: I can’t click with my touchpad in Knoppix. I can use USB/bluetooth mouse normally but the Laptop’s touchpad can’t be tapped to click.

Solution:

  1. Go to terminal and enter the following

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ synclient Tapbutton1=1

  2. Now try closing the terminal by tapping the [X] in the terminal window and it will work.

Note: This only works for the current session which means if you restart knoppix, the touchpad will be back to unclickable. I will update the post as soon as I discover the permanent solution to the problem. But as far as I am concerned, I can do that on every boot 🙂
