 Configuration screenshot

can someone please post a screenshot of touchpad tapping configuration.

i have trouble configuring my tapping times, and can't get double tap (for moving windows, like press and hold) to work fine.

here is my configuration screenshot:

this may be stupid question but i have tried so many things to get it to work without success.

 Smart mode?

Hi, I can not check the "Smart Mode" option, why?

Current GIT version supports Smart Mode using syndaemon (which is normally part of X11 synaptics driver). It is up to author to release new version though :)

So what exactly are you saying here. I have syndaemon on my machine, it even works but it's not possible to enable it via the kcm_touchpad module.
The option is there but it is grayed out.
What exactly is in git version?

 Tapping not working

 by EagleScreen on: Mar 8 2010

Hello, since Xorg-input-synaptics upstream decided disable tapping by default, i cannot use your application to enable tapping in Debian unstable. But the Gnome tool is working perfectly.
The same result is expected for future releases of other distributions unless they decide to patch Xorg-input-synaptics or you update your application with a fix for this.

Tapping works just fine here. Could you please give reference to GIT repository and commit where it happened, because I do not see anything obvious in xf86-input-synaptics log? Can you enable tapping using synclient?

I have confirmed right now that this tapping issue is still present, the only way to enable tapping is by synclient, kcm_touchpad config is ignored.
I think the changes were done around line 437 in ../src/synaptics.c

I am talking about package xserver-xorg-input-synaptics , i am not sure in what commit or version came the change. I am looking to the sources of the versions 1.2.0 and 1.2.1.

I have left button and tapping works. In any case, driver code only sets defaults; kcm_touchpad is there exactly to make adjustments if defaults are not suitable.

Please show your ~/.kde4/share/config/kcmtouchpadrc and output of synclient -l.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
