Hi all, I am very new and I do not hear a lot of things. I have installed the latest version of Fedora, but the touchpad does not catch me as I would like, because I can commute on web pages up and down with two fingers (multi-touch think it's called), but it forces me to click it from the button because if I touch with my finger on the touchpad does nothing. I need to correct that because I work well and I would not have to change just for that distro. Greetings and thanks.

If you are using GNOME (which will the default if you downloaded the iso files from Fedora webpage), go to Settings and then to Mouse and Touchpad. In that window, enable (select) "Tap touchpad to click" option and you should be able to use your touchpad to click. You can also test if it works on the same screen.

You can get to (mouse) settings menu in one of the two ways - easiest is click on your name on top right corner and choose system settings. From the window that appears, choose "Mouse ..."


Click on activities, when you get the "overview", type "mouse" (and wait), you can directly get to "Mouse and Touchpad" settings.

If you are using XFCE, you can find "Mouse and Touchpad" under settings menu.

If you are using KDE, look for something similar (I have not used KDE before).

Hope that helps. Also, this setting should be preserved across reboots.
