Linux - registering trackpad clicks on laptop.

Linux - registering trackpad clicks on laptop.
The old linux installation guide had information on how to fix trackpad click counting on laptops, but now the link http://jmrk.whatpulse.org/ just redirects to the global download page.

It was basically creating a really small config file in one place, but I can't remember exactly where or what the contents should be. Anyone know how to do this or is that old guide still available anywhere?

I'm running 64-bit Lubuntu 12.10 on a Dell studio 1588 laptop. I was previously able to count clicks with this laptop, running ubuntu, with whatpulse 1.6.

RE: Linux - registering trackpad clicks on laptop.
Code:
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "whatpulse touchpad configuration"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Option "GrabEventDevice" "false"
EndSection

Put this in a file named "30-whatpulse-touchpad-rules.conf", in Ubuntu the file should be in "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/"

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for!
