Restore touchpad settings in Ubuntu 17.10

I really hate "tap to click" being enabled on my touchpad.  So I was frustrated when I could not find a setting to disable it in Ubuntu 17.10.  Fortunately, I found an Ask Ubuntu post that describes how to fix this problem.  The solution is to make sure the package xserver-xorg-input-libinput is installed and that the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package is uninstalled.
