HP Touchpad right click is buggy
Last modified: 2012-07-23 22:14:04 EDT
Description of problem:
An HP-Touchpad with on/off button is hard to use. In order to right click, you must left click using two fingers and drag slightly. The right button on the mouse is simply a second left click button.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use right click button.
Left Clicks. (tedious right click solution described in description.)
Right click, such as bring a menu up.
Am using a pavilian dm4-1265dx with fedora 16, kernel version 3.2.9-1.fc16.x86_64. This problem has been consistent since the release of fedora 15. Not sure if it worked with older versions of fedora.
Bug is worse on Fedora 17 with kernel-3.3.0-8.fc17.x86_64. The same method to right click as on Fedora 15 and 16 does not work anymore.
Please attach your xorg.log and an evemu description of the device. thanks.
Im pretty new at this sorry. I am attaching the xorg.log files, but what is an evemu?
