Bug Description

Binary package hint: gpointing-device-settings

I'd like to be able to disable touchpad hardware buttons but be still able to use the touchpad and to tap its surface to produce clicks. I don't find the related option in `synclient -l`.

Yes I need this as well. Used to work in ubuntu 12.04, but has been broken in every release since.

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

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