Is there a KDE equivalent of system->preferences->mouse? I know about
the command-line synclient command, but that's not persistent across
logins, and that in theory it should be possible to configure things
in xorg.conf although none of my efforts in that direction have yet
succeeded.


afaik only gnome allows you to change the persistent tap2click touchpad default *post-login*. To re-enable tap2click for KDE, XFCE, other WMs, and system-wide (including gdm), users are expected to manually copy /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-synaptics.fdi to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ as root, and then uncomment (correctly) the TapButton settings.

(I do wish the tap2click default would stop flipflopping)
