Dear developpers, Is there other people still using gpm intensively (the console mouse selection system) ? The Debian package is unmaintained and the upstream project is not very active either. GPM does not support 'clickpads' found in newer laptop (there is no button available for pasting). The problem is that /dev/input/mice only report a single button, and gpm need at least two. So either the kernel should be changed or GPM should use /dev/input/event*. However, GPM also does not have full evdev support and the GPM codebase is widely considered unmaintainable. (I use a patched GPM that have just enough evdev support for my laptop, see bug #722928) I do not know if there any chance for the kernel to be fixed to report more than one button. While writing a basic GPM replacement is not hard, writing a good multitouch touchpad driver is, since it requires duplicating a large part of xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. So if you are concerned by this issue, please contact me. (Please CC me, I am not subscribed to the list). Cheers, -- Bill. <firstname.lastname@example.org> Imagine a large red swirl here.
