Touchpad tap-to-click delay

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Problem: ~0.5 second delay when using the tap-to-click feature of my laptop's touchpad. Delay NOT present when using the left and right click mouse buttons located below touchpad.


Troubleshooting attempted:

-Some threads online suggest setting FastTaps in the synaptics driver to 1 using $ synclient FastTaps=1. This didn't seem to remedy the issue at all.
- Install gpointing-device-settings and enable fast taps. Didn't help.
-Played around with various attributes in $ synclient -l

Hardware/Setup:

Ubuntu 12.10 x64
Dell Latitude D830
Some kind of Alps touchpad

Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure where the touchpad would present itself but lspci or lsusb should give you more details about the hardware. Or going to the product's site might give you more info, that would be helpful. Unfortunately I don't have experience in these issues so all I can give you is this. =( However getting that information will be very helpful to somebody who does.

It's probably an Xorg.conf setting, but honestly it's been so long since I've hacked about in there that I can't remember much about them.

You should be able to do anything you need with synclient. I have a synaptics touchpad as well, and I just messed around with it and got it working how I wanted.
Manpage should be of some use.
