Description nh2 2010-05-06 14:44:44 UTC
As described in, for scrolling on the right side of the touchpad permanently triggers corner tapping events for some users.

There is no easy way in GNOME to turn corner tapping it off.

I added two options to en-/disable corner tapping in the touchpad properties and the equivalent in the settings daemon.

Changes for gnome-control-center:
branch cornertapping in git:// (

Changes for gnome-settings-daemon:
branch cornertapping in git:// (

The cornertapping branch currently merges without conflicts with master and  gnome-2-30.

This somewhat overlaps with bug 598820. Feel free to add your thoughts there.

I'm not sure it is a duplicate of bug 598820. Isn't bug 598820 about which corner triggers what event?

This one is just about en-/disabling the feature.

It's not an exact duplicate, that's true, but I'd still like to keep the discussion in a single place since it's closely related, and Yuri's been working on adding GConf options as well.
