I have a MacBook Pro running Leopard 10.5.5. I was wondering if there is any way to adjust the touchpad sensitivity for one-finger clicking. At the moment I have to touch fairly hard in order to register a click. Is there a way to adjust how much pressure is required for the click to register?

I found an option to adjust sensitivity as it relates to dragging, but I couldn't find anything for clicking.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

    A clarification of my last post:

    The problem seems to be not with the sensitivity of the touchpad but with how much time the OS waits for another touch before registering the click. When I turn off dragging completely, one-touch clicks register almost immediately. I understand that there needs to be some delay when dragging is turned on in order to allow for double-clicks, but no matter what I set the Double-Click speed to, the delay seems excessive before a click will register.

    This lag is very annoying. Especially when focusing items with mouse. I used button with older models but the new buttonless trackpad is really too stiff and the response in other areas than bottom is even worse.
