Ubuntu – Disable three finger tap of Apple Trackpad in Ubuntu 12.04


I have configured Apple trackpad on Ubuntu 12.04 in xorg.conf as suggested here.

I have also added

"TapButton3" "0" 

but it does not disable three finger tap.

My Question

How to disable three finger tap of trackpad in xorg.conf?

Best Answer

  • Run the following in a terminal

    synclient ClickFinger3=0
    synclient TapButton3=0

    If this does the trick (or a variance of 0 , 1 , 2, 3 , ) you can add it to startup.

    (note i do not have a macbook,but it works on my asus. Please let me know if this does nothing at all)
