Gnome and KDE has default utility for mouse and touchpad configuration.

XFCE on Fedora 17 that's mean XFCE 4.8 no utility but we gonna see mouse
and touchpad utility on next version ( XFCE 4.10 on Fedora 18 )

Tour link for XFCE ;  http://www.xfce.org/about/tour

XFCE 4.8 touchpad =

But LXDE we need to do manually on terminal as far as I see

LXDE spin by adding these two lines to


Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "RBCornerButton" "3"

(Line 1: left mouse tap / Line 2: right mouse tap in lower right corner)
