Solved--Tap to click on touchpad

I’d like to disable tap to click. I don’t see that option in my mouse and touchpad settings.

I would copy the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf file over to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and in the touchpad section add
Option “Tapping” “off”

This would disable it for any graphical session for any user.

Otherwise, it can be found in the touchpad settings in both XFCE and KDE; other DEs I don’t know specifically.

I really hate tap to click. Every time I move the mouse pointer, I drag a folder or similar. Horrible!


Perfect. Thanks. For those following, sudo the file manager to get started. But I’m a newbie, probably goes without saying.
