FOR LMDE XFCE RC:

If your touch pad can not emulate a double click by tapping on the touch pad go to the terminal and type:

sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
 

then replace with:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
EndSection

Then save the file, close gedit

go back to the terminal and type: sudo reboot

log-in and test the touch pad by tapping on it to open files

Doesnt work here,no miracle happens :( Im using Acer Aspire One D255 Netbook.All I can do is modprobe in terminal to enable edge-scrolling.But afer restarting,or sudo reboot,everything will still be like before,no scroll for me.
Sorry,my English is bad.
