But was tap to click ever enabled by default in Fedora then suddenly
switched to disabled? If the default has always been disabled, why would a
user have the expectation that tapping is broken when it was never a
default in the first place? Moreover, a simple google of "fedora tap to
click" tells you exactly how to enable it. This discussion is creating a
problem where there isn't one. Tap to click is also disabled in OS X by
default and I think Mac users are able to figure it out just fine. If they
can find the setting, Fedora users can as well :)
