Description Peter Hutterer 2017-09-28 04:54:38 UTC
Description of problem:
If libinput is to become a first-class citizen instead of an extra driver available we need to rebase it to 1.8. That release has support for touchpad per-touch pressure which is a requirement for good touchpad interaction. A couple of better palm touch detection algorithms were added too.

For tablets this also resolves the wobbly lines that libinput 1.6 causes.

Comment 2 Peter Hutterer 2017-10-09 01:53:34 UTC
libinput-1.8.3-1.el7 is available in brew
