Package: release-notes
Severity: normal


Section 5.3.3. of the release notes (about the transition from evdev
to libinput) has an example of how to get the old emulate3buttons
behaviour (i.e. use click both buttons as middle-button). It should
also mention, though, that libinput is likely to leave middle-button
and drag as scroll up and down (because the default scroll method is
button, and the default button is 2). This means people who just
wanted a middle button will get the confusing behaviour that their
"middle" button clicks OK, but they can't click and drag with it.

I think this should either be documented, or the snippet adjusted to
        Option "ScrollMethod" "none"

Dear reporter,

Thanks for taking the time long ago to submit your release notes bug.
I'm closing these reports now because the Debian releases they were
reported against have reached their end-of-life (some long ago).

Unfortunately it's possible that the report I'm now closing may still
have relevant information for the current release (bullseye). If you
believe that's the case, don't hesitate to reopen the bug, retitle it
and provide further information and it will be seen during the current
freeze period of Debian.
