I do have one though. Where is it and how to configure it? What I want now is to enable double-click to open files/folders as opposed to default single-click.

I'm using Fedora 27 KDE.

Very good question (cannot upvote yet). The mouse settings are absent under "Input devices" category, beside Touchpad ( ). I wander whether this is Fedora or KDE bug. I suggest adding the KDE/Dolphin specification in the name of the question.

This is a bug with Plasma 5 in Fedora before Plasma version 5.12.3 which reportedly solves the problem, as said here and here.

Plasma version 5.12.3 at this date needs the updates-testing repo to be enabled.

On how to do that (on your own risk), see here how to add the repo and update and here how to enable and disable that repo.

What I did is:

sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing update 'kf5*' 'plasma*'

sudo dnf config-manager --set-disable updates-testing

Logged out and back and the mouse setting its there beside Touchpad, as expected.

But I do not recommend this.

The update from testing repos may bring more bugs than it solves.

(A bug that appeared instantly: no wallpaper for the login screen until I changed the login theme from Breeze Fedora to Breeze.)
