This package has been removed from the Ubuntu development release, so I am closing all remaining open bug reports.

Sorry that we couldn't fix your problem properly, but gpointing-device-settings is dead upstream, buggy and completely unmaintained.

For more information, see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=870961

Thank you for your understanding and please continue to report any bugs you may find.
