[RFE] Add user intreface to disable touch for wacom devices
Last modified: 2017-07-21 17:28:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently there is no user interface to disable touch for wacom tablets in GNOME 3. There should be a checkbox or button that should allow users to disable touch for wacom devices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
There is a dconf key '/schemas/desktop/gnome/peripherals/wacom/touch' that can be used to save state of touch input for individual devices.
A proper fix for this issue is blocking on switching to the libinput driver, and thus probably has to wait until 7.4 at least. In the meantime, we are investigating a smaller fix using the "wacome enable touch" device property that may be doable for 7.3.
After investigation, using the "Device Enabled" property will be hard without false positives in matching pen/pad/touch device. Therefore, we will address this in 7.4 when we switch to the libinput driver.
