Bug Description

Binary package hint: gpointing-device-settings

I have a Dell D830 laptop which has both a trackpad and a dualpoint stick. I use the trackpad to move the cursor around the screen, and like to use the stick to scroll windows with. I don't like to have to press an additional button to be able to do this. This means I need the possibility to select mouse button 0 under the "Wheel Emulation" button selection. It isn't allowed. I think this should be an easy change with the Glade Interface Designer, and attempted to build it and provide you with the patch, but I was unsuccessful in making gpointing-device-settings build on my system. (See

The xinput command to do this is:

 xinput --set-prop 10 "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 0
