Touchpad Tap Enable with XFCE

This is just a quick record regarding how to enable touch pad tapping with XFCE.
I'm using Debian Wheezy, XFCE4 and a Positivo MODO Black Netbook.

Method I - Init script.
Create a script with the code below and tell your XFCE to run it when it starts up.
Synclient TapButton1=1 LBCornerButton=2 RBCornerButton=3 MaxTapTime=150  SingleTapTimeout=150 MaxDoubleTapTime=150 

Method II - Add your settings to X configs.
Edit the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf and make the Touch Pad section look like this:
Section "InputClass"                                                
    Identifier "touchpad catchall"
    Driver "synaptics"
    MatchIsTouchpad "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Option "TapButton1" "1"
    Option "RBCornerButton" "3"
That's it ;-)
