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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 23 Alpha on MacBook Pro 10,1
2. Open 'System Settings'
3. Open 'Mouse and Touchpad'
No settings related to right-click emulation.
There should be a setting to control the right-click emulation for the touchpad.
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
