Hi guys

My right clic doesn't work with my touchpad, but when I plug my wired mouse it works very good...
And idea?  :)

Linuxien,
Your touchpad should be handled by synaptics, it is different from the wired one.
Also, are you talking about right click or right tap? If the button, is it working on other distros? it could be broken too...
Maybe it's a synaptics issue, so you can play a bit with synclient and read man pages of synclient, synaptics, xorg.conf.
You can also look for informations in /var/log/Xorg.0.log (or other Xorg logs if any) and search for synaptics string. Maybe you'll find some errors or if all the functionalities have been correctly detected and their initial settings.
This is a boring issue anyone can fall into... you should do some work on your own  :D

Bye.

Thanks for your help b4d_bl0ck!
I looked into the logs and I found that :
[    36.060] (--) synaptics: ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad: buttons: left double triple
I don't really know what I can change to get this to work...
My touchpad is not broken, when I launch others distro in virtualbox (debian, b.arch, ferora, XP) it works very good...

See if it helps... an user has fixed the right click problem blacklisting drivers...

Bye.
