Enable tap-to-click on Arch Linux

Edit : 18-03-2017
other way to do it :

 $ libinput-list-devices  
 $ xinput list-props "your touchpad devices"  
 # Enable tap-click  
 $ xinput set-prop "your touchpad devices" "libinput Tapping Enabled" 1  

If you use openbox, then it is like ‘build a home’, unlike gnome, xfce,etc that has everything ready to use. Some people like to use tap to click on their touchpad, if you use gnome, then you can always set that on gnome setting, but what if it’s on openbox?

  1. install xf86-input-libinput because xf86-input-synaptics ( based on Arch Wiki ) is in maintenance mode and is no longer updated.
  2. Open your xorg.conf file and add the following line

    Section "InputClass"
           Identifier "tap-by-default"
           MatchIsTouchpad "on"
           MatchDriver "libinput"
           Option "Tapping" "on"
  3. Save and restart your system
