I've set
Code:
synclient TapButton3=2

(2 is middle click, 3 is right click, apparently).
Code:
# xinput list-props "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" | grep Capabilities
Synaptics Capabilities (288):   1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

so my device is capable of it, but no three finger tap gets registered.

Can anyone help?

Looks like "has middle button" is not one of the capabilities, and three-finger tap (one tap, three pressure points) defaults to middle button, according to `man synaptics` --Multifinger taps: two finger for right button and three finger for middle button events.--

You might also check this setting ...

Option "TapButton3" "integer"
Which mouse button is reported on a non-corner three-finger tap

Edit to add, I see you told us the setting for TapButton3, being button 2.
