Right click wont work on 18.04


#1

Just did a fresh install of Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 and my right click is not working at all with my touch pad, tried it with both a live session and a full install and on both cases my right click is useless, nothing on budgie settings or system settings helped, my right click does work with a mouse and have been able to use it with my touch pad on a live session of Kubuntu 18.04 as well as Ubuntu 16.04

Hopefully there is solution or I might have to use another flavor since the use of the touch pad is essential for me.


Touchpad Right Click Not Work

What kind of touch pad do you have?

xinput list

It should list it somewhere in there.

@fossfreedom have you see nthis before between flavors?

This is intentional from the good GNOME folk who developed 3.28

The default is now the two fingered tap on the touchpad. This is the Mac method and fixes touchpad sensitivity issues.

To revert to using your actual touchpad areas/buttons, you either use gsettings/dconf:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method areas

And to re-enable two finger tap:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method fingers

Thanks a lot! that did the trick.

Is it possible to have both? Also, how do I middle-click?
