Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 968826
Usability: bottom "tray" menu is a pain to activate using a trackpoint or touchpad
Last modified: 2015-02-17 10:23:21 EST
Description of problem:
The bottom "tray" menu of the gnome shell used to open up when just slightly touching the bottom right corner. Now I need to slam the cursor into the lower screen border and dive it down various pixels (visibly it stays at the lower edge of course) until the menu comes up. While that is easy to do with a mouse, it is actually quite a hassle with a trackpoint (and my trackpoint sensitivity is set pretty high).
Small sidenote: it's also quite an effort with the touchpad actually, when touchpad sensitivity isn't extraordinarily high
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME Shell 3.8.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use trackpoint and attempt to open the bottom "tray" menu with moving down the mouse against lower screen border
Takes a short moment to activate during which you need to exert constant pressure on the trackpoint with your finger, which isn't exactly a comfortable thing to do (and takes quite a while compared to a mouse where you can easily just shiver the cursor down a bit more)
Bottom "tray" menu thing needs less effort to activate with a trackpoint

This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
