Tap To Click on AwesomeWM

Well there’s no section for awesomewm so I put in here. But anyway I started using awesome wm. Loved it but how to activate tap-to-click.
I know tapping and other touchpad settings are configured either through XInput2 as “device properties”, or through Xorg.conf as settings for the ‘libinput’ driver.
So I ran
xinput set-prop ELAN0650:01 "libinput Tapping Enabled" 1
But It showed
unable to find device ELAN0650:01
So i have no idea what to do

xinput list
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ ELAN0650:01 04F3:304B Mouse             	id=10	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ ELAN0650:01 04F3:304B Touchpad          	id=11	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Wacom HID 50DE Finger                   	id=13	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ EasyCamera: EasyCamera                  	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Wacom HID 50DE Pen                      	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Ideapad extra buttons                   	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=15	[slave  keyboard (3)]

just started using Awesome myself, solved it by doing this:

create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-touchpad-settings.conf

add folowing in that file, and reboot

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Touchpads"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Option "Tapping" "on"

Thanks you so much!
With the rise of awesowe users perhaps it should have its own topic?
