Description Siteshwar Vashisht 2015-08-25 03:04:19 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):

How reproducible:

Additional Information:
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.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2016-05-18 12:28:38 EDT
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.
