I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v2085 laptop with Synaptics touchpad. I use Slackware 12 with XFCE desktop

Below "click" refers to click by tapping a touchpad.

1. If I click a word in a document in nedit then cursor appears in a place I clicked.

If I double click a word then exactly same thing happens.

If I triple click a word then exactly same thing happens as well.

If I "4-click" a word then what happens is the following: trough first 3 clicks cursor appears in a place I clicked and on fourth click word gets highlighted and in the very next moment this highlighting disappears.

2. Similar behaviour is observed in Open File box: If I click/double click/triple click a name of a directory then this name gets highlighted. If I 4-click a name of a directory then this directory gets opened and an item inside this directory beneath the cursor gets highlighted.

Similarly for Save File box.

3. AFAIK nedit is the only application in my sytem with this behaviour: I specifically checked Firefox and xpaint.

4. Clicking using "honest" buttons next to touchpad works normally.

5. My xorg.conf configuration of touchpad:

    Now, I think the problem has something to do with how fast the
    touchpad can recognize when you tap on it (vs. dragging the finger).

    Please try this: Put the following line in your .Xdefaults (or .Xresources) file

    nedit.multiClickTime: 400

    Then xrdb -m .Xdefaults and restart NEdit.

    More of a FAQ. Would be nice if KDE/GNOME set this in the resource database...
