Applied Workarounds

Touchpad Middle Click

Touchpad: three finger tap/click -> middle click

atom /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
    # append to end of **1st** InputClass section
    Option "TapButton3" "2"
    Option "ClickFinger3" "2"
    # Susave: save
gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.mouse active
    # if it returns "true" set it to false
    gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.mouse active false
reboot # and it should work
