Touchpad Right Click

Touchpad Right Click

Postby RyanFZed » Fri Jun 14, 2019 1:42 am

Hi, sorry for the probably common question but I couldn't find it through the search function. I'm trying out Zorin 15 and I'm trying to get right click to work for my touchpad on my ASUS laptop. Most Linux distros I've used have usually had a setting to enable right click on touchpad in the mouse settings, but I don't see one in Zorin. Do I need to enable it via terminal instead or something? I'm kinda new to Linux, just installing stuff on an old laptop that can't handle Windows 8 anymore. Thanks for the help.

My experience with Z12 is that the touchpad right click feature is there by default. Can't speak to Z15.

If you have 'gnome-tweaks' installed, and the Firefox add-on install this extension:

Hi RyanFZed,
try tapping with two fingers, anywhere on the touchpad.
(It's a GNOME feature, not a bug, I read about it here: https://itsfoss.com/fix-right-click-touchpad-ubuntu/ - the page is about Ubuntu but I found out it works the same on Zorin 15)

If you want to change that behaviour, you have to install gnome-tweaks as someone else suggested.

Bye!
