As for press to select, in my configuration ( 2.6.12, debian sources with trackpoint patch), the press to select entry in /sys is named "press_to_select" and not "ptson". Then :

Press to Select

Press to Select allows you to tap the control stick which will simulate a left click. You can enable this feature by typing the following in to a terminal (you may need to be root):

# echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio0/press_to_select

Press to Select should now be enabled. You can disable it in a similar manner:

# echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio0/press_to_select


Is this confirmed by others so that we modify the article ?

Thanks, VincentP
