From MEPIS Documentation Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

It sometimes happens that a laptop's keypad is not picked up by Linux. To fix that:

  • In your home directory look for hidden folder
~/.kde/Autostart

This is a short form for /home/user/.kde/Autostart

Create a new file called tapping.sh

  • Open that file, and copy and paste following into it:
#!/bin/bash
synclient TapButton1=1
synclient TapButton2=2
synclient TapButton3=3

Save and close file

  • Right click the file, select properties > permissions, and check to make it executable
  • Now exit and restart KDE
