Evdev right click emulation don't work on touch screen
Last modified: 2012-06-19 21:32:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Evdev right-click emulation don't work only on touchscreen, e.g. emulation works well on mouse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Enable "Evdev Third Button Emulation", and try to do right click on touchscreen by holding finger.
this is actually intended. for true multitouch screens we don't do gesture interpretation in the driver and leave it up to the client stack to do so. this of course leaves us with a gap until the clients all support it properly, but the alternative is a mess (as the synaptics driver shows). sorry.
