Bug Description

When using lightdm as display manager and GNOME Shell as DE, with libinput installed, lightdm doesn't respect the GNOME setting for tap to click.

This setting is correctly respected under gdm3.

This setting is also correctly respected when using lightdm without libinput installed.

The synaptic driver is installed as well, if it was of any interest.

Also, this seems to be fixed (or always enabled) in 17.10, as I could use tap to click in lightdm with the Daily ISO (with GNOME DE installed).
