Comment 23 for bug 1603183

@vanvugt I think this is still a big problem lots of 16.04 -> 18.04 upgraders will run into.

This one blew my mind after installing 18.04 today. If this is going to be the new default, we need to warn users, because those of us not using Apple/ChromeOS hardware *expect* clickpads to work like they have for a decade now so it feels like an Ubuntu regression / issue.

The easier solution may be to do a little bit of hardware detection before Ubuntu configures this one for the users, and set the relevant hardware accordingly (Apple/ChromeOs->"fingers"; Dell/Lenovo/Etc->"areas").

Currently (18.04), the easy fix for this is to set:

    $ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method areas

My bug 1767383 is almost certainly a dupe of this one (sorry, I was originally searching for it against the old driver), but I'll let someone else decide that.
