Description Stewart Adam 2008-07-02 23:23:32 UTC
The attached file updates synaptics to today's git, update the existing patches
accordingly as well as adds a new patch to support "MultiFingerButton".

It would be great to have this commited since the git checkout improves the
double-finger scroll detection. The MultiFingerButton allows users to configure
alternate button events when clicking with two fingers present on the touchpad.

Comment 2 Peter Hutterer 2008-08-22 06:43:24 UTC
The cvs diff is missing the patch you added. Nevertheless, I believe the following commit may be equivalent to what you wanted to add?

If so, it is part of xorg-x11-drv-synaptics, which superseeds synaptics.

Comment 3 Stewart Adam 2008-08-22 21:30:20 UTC
@missing patch, sorry about that, I don't use CVS very often ;)

That looks more or less what MultiFingerButton, essentially as long as it supports double-tap/clicking while two fingers are pressed --> right click I'm happy.

Comment 4 Peter Hutterer 2008-09-24 04:58:10 UTC
Closing, the TapButton or alternatively ClickFinger options provide that functionality.

Available from xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-0.15.0-2.f9.
