Manjaro – I3wm – Tap to Click – xf86-input-libinput

For some reason, on Manjaro’s I3wm Community edition the tap to click feature is not set up out of the box. Here’s the fix:

  1. Create a config file from your terminal shell: sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf
  2. Open the file in nano: sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf
  3. Paste in the following code, and save out the file:
    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "MyTouchpad"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    Driver "libinput"
    Option "Tapping" "on"
    EndSection
  4. Logout/in (or just restart) and now tap to click should be working once again!
