Description Craig McLean 2005-08-12 12:48:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Toshiba Tecra M2, kernel as described. Using Gnome.
Note that the kernel is from FC5, everything else on the system is FC4.
tap-to-drag on ALPS touchpad worked in 2.6.12-1.1400_FC5 but no longer does.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a system with ALPS Dualpoint touchpad
2. Upgrade from 2.6.12-1.1400_FC5 to 2.6.12-1.1469_FC5
Actual results:
Tap-to-drag windows does not work.

Expected results:
tap and hold should grab the window and allow it to be dragged. This worked in
earlier kernels but not as of 2.6.12-1.1469

Additional info:
I have the psmouse.proto=exps in my boot options, although this makes no
difference. Double tap for a double click works fine, just tap to drag causing
There seems to be new code around the mouse in the new kernel, it gets announced
as an ALPS dualpoint, while older kernels simply said "PS/2 mouse". dmesg from
working and not working boots attached.

any better in current builds ?
Comment 4 Craig McLean 2005-10-06 08:48:52 EDT
Just updated to 2.6.13-1.1526 and all seems OK, haven't tested the FC5 Kernel
though, so if the changes are tracked through that build too then we're fine to
close this.
