Linux - registering trackpad clicks on laptop.

The old linux installation guide had information on how to fix trackpad click counting on laptops, but now the link just redirects to the global download page.

It was basically creating a really small config file in one place, but I can’t remember exactly where or what the contents should be. Anyone know how to do this or is that old guide still available anywhere?

I’m running 64-bit Lubuntu 12.10 on a Dell studio 1588 laptop. I was previously able to count clicks with this laptop, running ubuntu, with whatpulse 1.6.

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "whatpulse touchpad configuration"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Option "GrabEventDevice" "false"

Put this in a file named “30-whatpulse-touchpad-rules.conf”, in Ubuntu the file should be in “/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/”

Thanks, that’s exactly what I was looking for!
