Screenshot of mouse & touchpad settings

Description of problem:

Fedora 23 Alpha on MacBookPro 10,1; GNOME settings 'mouse & touchpad settings' screen doesn't provide any way to modify the right-click settings. Since this defaults to (apparently?) not providing right-click ability (bug 1252995) there's no user-visible way to modify the setting and get the computer in a "working" state.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 23 Alpha on MacBook Pro 10,1
2. Open 'System Settings'
3. Open 'Mouse and Touchpad'

Actual results:
No settings related to right-click emulation.

Expected results:
There should be a setting to control the right-click emulation for the touchpad.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2016-09-22 18:46:10 EDT
By default, on Macs, the right-click is done by "clicking" with two-fingers.
If you don't like that, you can change it with:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method areas
