Bug Description

trying out the unity8 session in xenial there is no way to make tap to click on a touchpad work in unity8 ... clicking the touchpad button works fine but means you need both hands for click+drag which breaks the workflow enough to make the touchpad rather unusable.

There's a "Tap to click" option in System Settings; do you have that enabled?
