Thanks alot StephenH for the great help, just though i'd give the details in 'newbie' terms of what i had to do for my 'Trackpad' tap issue to work.
I did find that under '/etc/X11/' folders i was missing the 'xorg.conf' file so i created a new one by...
..opening a 'terminal' window first..
2:.and then changing to the root user by typing..
3: i then entering this command...
Xorg :1 -configure
4: which then created a new 'Xorg.conf.new' in the location '/root/'....
5: i then installed the program 'beesu' plus the two other items associated with that package using the 'Add and remove software' app, this was to give me easier file and folder access as a 'Root' user, then, by holding down the ALT+F2 keyboard buttons, a 'run' dialogue box appears and i entered the instruction below...
6..this opens file manager as a 'root' administrator user, i then located the 'Xorg.conf.new' file in the 'root' location, and renamed it by removing the '.new' part of it's filename..
7:..i then cut and pasted the 'Xorg.conf' file from the 'root' directory over to the location below..
...pasting the file into the 'X11' folder
8:.then i double click onto my new 'Xorg.conf' file, which then opened in the text editor 'Gedit', i copied the instructions directly off the website's webpage that StephenH's provided in his reply above...and pasted it in-between the exsisting text that was there, choosing to place it just after the 'Section "InputDevice", and also making sure to allow the same line spacing's before the line 'Section "inputClass", and after the line 'EndSection'..
(Look under the section 'Example: Tap-to-click')
Option "TapButton1" "1"
9:.. i then saved my changes and closed anything i had opened, i then shut-down the computer to start it back up from a fresh boot.
When i reached the 'Login' screen apon bootup, success! the 'Trackpad' tap was now loading at that point.
Thanks again for the very kind help
