Touch Pad partially disabled (SOLVED)
« on: March 26, 2018, 09:34:54 am »
hi to all.
recent install of Peppermint 8 on IBM Thinkpad.
i was customizing the touchpad pointer speed and the pointer now will not allow me to select or click on anything on the screen.
it still moves across the screen in a normal manner but will not allow me to click on any place i choose to open or close.
if i logout and then login as a guest it works normally.

any ideas? comments?

thanks to all.
