GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 617911
Corner tapping can kill touchpad usability
Last modified: 2010-05-07 08:05:51 UTC
As described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts/+bug/386017, 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://gitorious.org/~nh2/gnome-control-center/nh2s-gnome-control-center.git (http://gitorious.org/~nh2/gnome-control-center/nh2s-gnome-control-center/commits/cornertapping)
Changes for gnome-settings-daemon:
branch cornertapping in git://gitorious.org/~nh2/gnome-settings-daemon/nh2s-gnome-settings-daemon.git (http://gitorious.org/~nh2/gnome-settings-daemon/nh2s-gnome-settings-daemon/commits/cornertapping)
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.
