i bought a cheap Touchpad (Speedlink Sway), but only the pointer works. I can't use the tap, nor the hardware keys.

Device:

Bus 003 Device 008: ID 062a:2901 Creative Labs 

Xinput:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                      id=2    [master pointer  (3)]

Keys:

xinput get-button-map 18
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 

But xev (nor KeyMon) does not show any reaction if I use the hardware keys or the tap function. Strange thing: I can use tap-hold to use the scrolling-function, but xev also does not show any reaction. Anyway: I can't use the touchpad, because I can't use a left, nor a right click.

Any suggestions? TIA Mierscheid

I seem to recall encountering this too. Have you had a look at system settings > mouse & touchpad > devices > touchpad and then enable "Tap to click"

settings window

Of course I had. :-) I can choose whatever I want: Nothing happens.
