    What version of CR you using? Tried to disable / enable the trackpad? Try to create a new account to see if any settings mess with it?

    Pranav - 

    I will mark that on our known working list - thanks!


    I want to dbl check - you turned on "Tap to click" in the touchpad settings menu and it doesn't change anything?

    Tap to click is enabled in the settings but the problem still persists. My touch pad is fully functional except tap to click. The scrolling is really smooth like on a touchscreen and the multi finger gestures all work.

    Thanks for making Chromium OS on a PC so easy and stable. It really means a lot to me. My old computer that used to lag a lot on Windows 10 now performs at the speed of a High-End PC.

    I'm really glad that (almost) everything works so well for you!


    Can you do me a favor and just experiment a bit with taps that use more/less pressure, as well as two and three finger taps to see if they have any function?


    I'm just curious because I am surprised that the other functionality is so good, but this simplest feature is missing...

    • Two finger scrolling works. (Without even having to apply the slightest pressure.)
    • When I tap on the touchpad, with one finger, two fingers, three fingers or four fingers, nothing happens.
    • When I click the touchpad with one finger, irrespective of which part of the touchpad, it recognises it as a left click.
    • When I click the touchpad with two fingers, it recognises it as a right click.

     I think that there is nothing wrong with the driver this is a software issue because two finger scrolling works, so my touchpad can detect if my finger is on it even without applying pressure.

    Thanks for taking the time to review my post. It would really be a great help if you could solve this problem, cause I'm really used to using tap to click. Now I always carry my mouse with me because using the touchpad without tap to click is frustrating.

    It sounds like everything is working as expected except that taps don't work - nothing else is out of the norm for Chromebook touchpad functionality.


    Can you go use alt+shift+i to submit logs describing this issue and linking to this thread's URL in the description? I'd be interested to see what hardware this touchpad is, and whether there's an improvement to be had using a new cmd line flag. The logs would give a decent indication of that and then I could give you some instructions to try the change.
