Hi Faraco,

I disabled that on default, however you can easily change a large number
of touchpad features from the settings manager.

If everyone thinks we should enable one finger tapping as the left
button by default (as it is in Ubuntu/Debian) it would be easy to do. 
It always seemed to me as though it was a problem for people to have the
mouse clicking when they do not want it to, which is why I disabled the
one finger as left button.

System->Mouse/Touchpad Settings->Tapping

There you can configure, a one finger, two finger or three finger tap.

You can also configure the corners to do something specific.  There are
plenty of options, actually the most options I have seen in any DE, far
more than Gnome or LXDE, XFCE offer.

I hope this helps!
