Ubuntu – After upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 – Tap to click is not reliable anymore


I upgraded from Ubuntu 17.10 to 18.04 and realized tap to click is not reliable anymore. Approximately 40% of taps simply does nothing. Did you notice similar issues? Is it possible to fix this? (I use lenovo l450).

Edit: I use xorg session.

What ended up working for me was to remove the synaptics driver:

sudo apt remove xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

followed by a reboot. After that the touchpad worked again. I have a Dell XPS 15 9650.
