[arch-general] Where did the touch pad tapping go?

Hi All,

I've also hit a similar issue, but the new behaviour is even more
unusable:  After upgrading and removing xf86-input-synaptics my touchpad
doesn't accept tap-to-click, but also uses absolute positioning, i.e. if
I touch the pad in the bottom left corner, the mouse jumps to the bottom
left of the window, upper right touchpad goes to upper right window,

Adding the configuration as suggsted in:
(with or without xf86-input-synaptics) breaks the touchpad altogether,
i.e. it doesn't respond at all.

This is on a Dell XPS13 9000:

> xinput
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Optical Mouse              	id=9	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SYNAPTICS Synaptics Large Touch Screen  	id=10	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ DLL060A:00 06CB:2734                    	id=12	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Integrated_Webcam_HD                    	id=11	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=13	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ DELL Wireless hotkeys                   	id=15	[slave  keyboard (3)]

I currently don't have a xorg.conf file and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d is

Any suggestions?
