This worked for me:


gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method fingers

The current setting can be read using:


gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method

Your org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method value might not work for your touchpad, I had the same issue in a consumer device (while it was working fine in a Thinkpad). You can read the current value by opening a terminal and entering the below command:


gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method

For me, the fingers setting did the trick, configure it like so:


gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method fingers

Also, sorry for the double-post here. I got an error the first time.
