Tap to click on the login screen
I have been able to get this to work on my Mac Pro and iMac that have Magic TrackPads using:
sudo defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad Clicking -int 1
What am I missing?

I have copied these commands from https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dot...ob/master/.osx
# TRACKPAD: enable tap to click for this user and for the login screen defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad Clicking -bool true defaults -currentHost write NSGlobalDomain com.apple.mouse.tapBehavior -int 1 defaults write NSGlobalDomain com.apple.mouse.tapBehavior -int 1

As this is the newest thread I've found on that topic, I decided to post my solution here.
To enable the tap to click on the login screen in Mac OS X 10.8.4, I've done the following:
1. Set your desired preferences in your user account.
2. Start a terminal.
3. Make yourself root (sudo su -) You should be in the directory /var/root
4. cd to Library/Preferences and backup the file com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad.plist if it exists.
5. cp the same file from your user account into this folder.
(e.g.: "cp ~user/Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad.plist /var/root/Library/Preferences")
Tap to click works!
It could be sufficient to just type
sudo defaults write com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad Clicking -bool true
I hope I could help.
