Linux touchpad touches register as clicks
Running WP 2.4 on Elementary OS, and I found that touchpad clicks weren't registering. Multiple forum threads mentioned to add the 5 lines to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-whatpulse-touchpad-rules.conf, which I did. After a reboot, the clicks are registering, but also along with every touch! So now every time I move the mouse with the touchpad, it registers as a click resulting in a far higher click count. I'm not sure what logs to provide since I'm no Linux expert but I know my way around it, so if logs are needed I can provide.

RE: Linux touchpad touches register as clicks
Ok, I tried some things. Reapplying the setup-permission.sh file did not help. However, hooking up a wireless mouse does work. So I guess it's a touchpad thing while using linux.
