I have just installed ElementaryOS on a brand new laptop (Dell Vostro 3568), and I can't get physical secondary button to work. When I set "Primary button" to left in touchpad settings, all physical clicks are left, and when I set it to right all physical clicks are right. I have tried all options for "Physical clicking" setting and they don't appear to change anything.
Tap-to-click (left) and tap-with-two-fingers-to-click (right) always work as expected, regardless of primary button setting. I'm coming from Ubuntu, and have never used Elementary, but I can get around Linux fairly well.
The touchpad on my laptop has entire surface clickable (i.e. it's a clickpad) and I'd like the lower right portion of it to act as a secondary click.
