Hello,

Which login manager (xdm, gdm, kdm ?) and which desktop environment are
you using ? (GNOME, KDE, XFCE ... ).

Best Regards,

reassign 619800 gdm
thanks

To the gnome maintainers: It's probably just a configuration issue,
either gdm or X, if gdm can be configured for that, please help! :)

So you are saying that "touchpad's mouse click" is
 1. not working in gdm
 2. working in gnome
Right ?

By "touchpad's mouse click" what do you mean ?
 - using your touchpad buttons ?
 - using tap to click ?

I'm guessing this is a configuration stuff, either there is a way to tel
gdm to use the same configuration as your GNOME user, but I don't know
how (gnome maintainers please?).
Or you can configure your touchpad directly in xorg.conf, see [1]
synaptics configuration (synaptics is the driver for all touchpad
regardless of the actual brand).

Hope that helps.

It’s probably that. The default in GNOME is to disable it, and of course
changing that in the user session would not affect the login session.

You just need to set the appropriate GConf key
in /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults, as documented in README.Debian.
