Hmm this should be much better now, can you say which unity8 version are you using:

$ apt-cache policy unity8

Indeed, I see what's happening now, if you keep the mouse pressed, still, for half a second, it will work.

We need to increase the threshold after which we decide whether it's an edge gesture or not.

I guess this should be solved by, as currently mouse events are received by unity8 as touch events, which trigger edge gestures. With that change mouse events will properly go into unity8 and therefore won't trigger any edge gesture related action (as they're touch-only).

And actually is not possible to reproduce the bug anymore, even without the patch above, as unity8 now switches do windowed mode when a mouse is connected. And windowed mode doesn't have edge gestures.

You can still switch to staged mode, which is orthogonal to whether edge gestures work or not.

And in trunk there's no automatic switching yet.
