How to right click on a Macbook? [Solved]

Postby alexandros » Tue Jan 14, 2014 22:45

Hi all,
I'm new to this forum, Sabayon and rather new in Linux as well. I've dual booted my Macbook with Mac OS X and Sabayon 14.01 and I'm now browsing through my new OS. I have a question though (I guess it won't be the only one as I'll be learning more...) how can I right click on a Macbook? I'm using the track pad only and I've set it on OS X to get a secondary click when tapping with two fingers, but it doesn't seem to work on Sabayon...anyone knows?

Thanks,
Alexandros

Hi,
As far as I know, it's a matter of the Desktop Environment you use. In Gnome, for instance, 'Mouse and Touchpad' is accessible in Settings. Sorry, I don't know about other DEs.

It is indeed, but I can't see any 'right click' option there...
BTW, forgot to mention, I'm on Gnome..

Mine works. I have only enabled "Tap to click" and two-finger tapping works. Have you tried that?
