Description Jan Alexander Steffens (heftig) 2015-02-26 05:49:07 UTC
libinput's click method setting is not exposed by the driver. To enable clickfinger behavior for my non-Apple touchpad, I had to patch the Apple check out of libinput.
Comment 2 Jan Alexander Steffens (heftig) 2015-02-27 01:18:47 UTC
Patches work well, providing method selecting both via option and via properties.

However, when option is set to "clickfinger", list-props still reports "buttonareas" being enabled even though it's really clickfinger. Setting the property matches up behavior and property, though.
