Enable tap when using touchpad in LXDE/Ubuntu 18.04

After a fresh installation of LXDE on Ubuntu 18.04, the tap gesture did not work for the touchpad of my Lenovo Y510P.

Installing Synaptics as  helped to solve the problem:

Previously, xserver-xorg-input-libinput  was installed, and I did not manage to configure the tap gesture using this driver, properly.

I found this solution on askubuntu.com.
