Tap to click doesn't work in the login screen

hello EndeavourOS users.

i installed Endeavour Gnome yesterday with Galileo Neo and everything works well
except one thing. tap to click. i’ve enabled tap to click in the settings.
it works everywhere except in the login screen.
is this a bug or am i doing something wrong?

huh? i don’t know why the image is iffy.
hope this is better. https://ibb.co/z7yx5fy

thanks but i get an error.

failed to commit changes to dconf. Error spawning command line “dbus-launch --autolaunch=7e69961870ec46fd86cc8bbf21816325 --binary-syntax --close-stderr”: Child process exited with code 1

what do i do now?

Thanks @anthony93 for sharing those links!

This is what worked for me from a Wayland session (using the second link above):

  1. sudo -i

  2. su gdm -s /bin/bash

  3. dbus-launch gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-to-click true

I had the following warning after the step 3 but it seems to be irrelevant.

(process:3510): dconf-WARNING **: 16:17:09.166: Unable to open /root/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share/dconf/profile/user: Permission denied

Logged out and tested. Tap to click is enabled on the GDM login screen.


OMG! Tap to click works in the login screen!
Thank you so much!
