I am. But for my whole life action in computers meant pressing something. Now I have two areas which react on touch -- trackpoint and touchpad. You have. But most laptops have only one of them. We cannot make the exceptional case the standard.
Misunderstanding -- my point is, the trackpoint AND touchpad react for tapping.
You might want check if your laptop doesn't also hasn't an easy way to disable the touchpad.
Nope. And this would not work -- see above. I cannot disable everything because it reacts for tapping.
Do not expect that your "standard" is "standard" for everyone -- left mouse button can mean right mouse button for somebody else. That's why we auto-detect that during installation. Ever clicked the right mouse button on a push button in the YaST2 installation? It will ask if you would like to change the mouse buttons to left-handed.
Nice. I will come back to this later.
That underlines my point even more: Provide maximum convenience during installation so the user can concentrate on the important things. So that he does not have to fight simple things like the mouse or the keyboard while he has to make important decisions.
I agree! Totally. So why do you not want to help people like me -- with tapping disorder?
Ever watched people using a laptop? Ever watched novice users? Tapping is the most natural thing to do.
Hmm, my first and last user whom I let to touch my computer (novice) tried to move the entire touchpad (like a wheel in a mouse) :-) And touchpad is so popular because it has no alternative in laptops really. But let's get back to topic.
That's a bit like that old (and worn out, agreed) joke about MS Windows where that popup dialog appears: "You just moved the mouse. The system must be rebooted." [OK]
Good one :-) I didn't know that. Thank you for your comments, I see your point but I try to make installation process more safe. My another suggestions: a) how about something similar you described for RMB? b) how about option on a side for disabling tapping? c) how about just info on a side -- num lock on, caps lock off, tapping on? -- Configure bugmail: https://bugzilla.novell.com/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are on the CC list for the bug, or are watching someone who is.
