I own a Fujitsu laptop of the Celsius H Series. I am quite sure that tap-to-click did work until FreeBSD-12.1. Now I have upgraded to FreeBSD-12.2 and tap-to-click does not work anymore in X11. By the way, tap-to-click emulates mouse clicks when touching the pad for one or more times. In the vt console I could see that tap-to-click can be used to mark words or lines. Setting hw.psm.* variables in boot/loader.conf did not change the situation. Therefore I tried to configure X11. The following file has been copied from the Gentoo-Wiki and saved as //usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-touchpad.conf
Now tap-to-click works in X11 again. One strange thing is the output of
Here tap-to-click is still reported as off. At least I have a working fix which might be helpful for others. But I still like to know if there has been any change which caused tap-to-click not to work in X11. The report of libinput looks suspicious, too. Is there any explanation? I have found none in the problem reports and the X11 mailing list. May be I id not use the right keywords.
