yes, but it still makes not much sense in my case Confused

for example
adding the line
Quote:
Option "TapButton1" "0"


on a fresh xorg.conf there is all of that stuff missing, even the option to disable the Tap2click isnt there in the wizzard. After adding the line it appears.
The Posted File is my Current xorg.conf after i installed the synaptics driver via a pet file.

Let's see if your touchpad is responding to synclient commands. Try entering this command in a terminal window:
Code:
synclient TapButton1=0

If it works it will immediately disable tapping for button 1 (no need to restart X).

If it doesn't work you might have an incompatible touchpad, or a problem with synclient.

This was just to test things. Even if it works, it is not a permanent solution. But if it works, one possible cause for your problem could be that the /root/Startup/load-touchpad-settings script is overwriting the values that you are setting in xorg.conf each time you start X. Try this command to see if it is enabling tapping:
Code:
grep TapButton /root/.flSynclient

If it is, you can edit /root/.flSynclient, or you can just remove the load-touchpad-settings script from /root/Startup so that it will stop overwriting your settings from xorg.conf. (Of course, the latter will disable auto loading of any settings you save with flsynclient.)

It may not work for everyone, but I always disable the touchpad. Either in the bios or software. USB laptop mice are fairly cheap.
Cheers

Please post the output of this command:
Code:
grep Name /proc/bus/input/devices

If you see your touchpad listed, please also post the output of these commands:
Code:
synclient -V
ls -l  /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/input/
grep -i -A 1 synaptics /var/log/Xorg.0.log
