Bug Description

On Ubuntu 8.10,
with 1:,
about gnome-mouse-properties,
in the configuration gui of the mousepad,
it would be nice to have a checked box option to enable/disable the disabling
of the mousepadd when an usb mouse is connected.
Wether this option is checked or not, on the very first time a user connects a
usb mouse, a popup window may be opened to ask the user if he wants to do that
automatic disabling each time.

Best regards,
Nicolas Michel

thank you for your bug report

Changed in gnome-control-center:
assignee: nobody → desktop-bugs
importance: Undecided → Wishlist

A simple way to achieve that would be to replace the current checkbox (enable touchpad → true / false) with a combobox (enable touchpad → always / never / when no USB mouse is present).

Changed in gnome-control-center (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
