have a clickpad I can play with at work and tried out the beta of SuSe
and FC16. both have better support but the right click and center
click for does not work -- tools i need. you can set tapping to 2 or 3
fingers to get the right and center options, but who would use this --
12 year olds?! a simple left/right/center and move the mouse when you
move your finger would be a delight. This all made it clear to me that
choosing a laptop for linux should still be researched, maybe bring a
pendrive with linux on it to test before buying. hope you feel better.
--- Gary: Somehow I lost your Thursday Oct 6th reply, I'll blame it on a fogged head. In hindsight, I agree that I should have done the pendrive test. I need the right click and, to a lessor extent, the center as well. The first thing I did on the Win7 part of the dual-boot was kill the tapping. Looks my niece is going to get herself a new laptop and I'll try to do it right the next time. That being said, I am going to give F16 a try "just in case" Thanks for the get well wishes, Paul -- users mailing list users@lists.fedoraproject.org To unsubscribe or change subscription options: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/users Guidelines: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines
