Description Jun Aruga 2021-08-03 20:15:24 UTC
Description of problem:

On a laptop called Framework Laptop [1], the following issue was reported. Note I know some people at Fedora working with Framework. But I am just a user who pre-ordered the Framework Laptop, and am staying at the community forum.

> I’m facing a similar issue on Fedora 34. However, I’m running the KDE Plasma environment, so Gnome Tweaks won’t do much for me.
> In my case, right click doesn’t work at all (tried two-finger clicking and clicking the right half and bottom right quadrant of my touchpad with no success).

Here is the upstream commit on the upstream main branch to fix this issue. The commit is not released yet.


As a temporary workaround, we confirmed creating the temporary local device quirks file: /etc/libinput/local-overrides.quirks with the upstream's content fixes this issue in the community forum [2].

However it would be great if the commit will be applied as a patch to f34 (and f35) for user's convenience.

This should be fixed in 1.18.1 now, please see https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2021-7aaeceff96

Thanks! I see the new released version 1.18.1 has the 50-framework.quirks.
