Ubuntu – How to disable two-fingers/right-click in touchpad


I would like to disable the function right-click when tapping the touchpad with two fingers, because it is always interfering with the two-fingers/scrolling function. I also would like to maintain the function left-click when double tapping with one finger.
Thanks for the help.

Are you comfortable with the command prompt?

You can configure in detail how you want your touchpad to behave using synclient

You can get a list of current settings by doing synclient -l

For your specific request, you will need to run synclient TapButton2=0 to dissable the feature. To make the feature persistent create a ~/touchpad.sh configuration.
