Description Skondras Manolis 2010-06-11 03:57:37 UTC
Description of problem:
The "mouse click" doesn't work via touchpad in the laptop "Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V6535". When I tap in the touchpad it doesn't click any item in the Fedora 13 GUI (Gnome). It works without problem in other linux OS (e.g. Ubuntu). The only thing that I can do is to press the button that is placed down of the touchpad, but it is not operational. The touchpad's manufacturer is "Synaptics".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 13

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 13 in laptop "Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V6535".
2. Try to click an GUI item using ONLY the touchpad.
Actual results:
The "mouse click" doesn't work via touchpad.

Expected results:
The "mouse click" works via touchpad.

This is disabled by default and can be enabled in the gnome mouse preferences.
