I have just upgraded an HP laptop from Fed 25 to 26. All seems fine except that the tap-to-click functionality on the synaptics touch pad no longer works.

I have verified that the configuration I put in to enable it did not get removed by the update:

File: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-synaptics-overrides.conf

Section "touchpad"
    Driver  "synaptics"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"

    Option  "TapButton1"  "1"
    Option  "TapButton3"  "2"
    Option  "TapButton2"  "3"
    # Enable vertical scrolling
#    Option  "VertEdgeScroll"  "1"
#    Option  "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
#    Option  "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"

#    MatchDevicePath  "/dev/input/event*"

Can anyone explain why this has stopped working and what I need to do to restore it?

Searching on AskFedora does not seem to show anything similar, despite this being deleted for supposedly being a duplicate. If you can find a dupe, then it would be more help providing a link as a solution than deleting the question !

Please NOTE this was working just before the F26 upgrade. This is NOT how do I configure tapping. I already had that fixed with the code given above.
