[Bug 365952]


closing this again, was pushed as outlined in comment #27 and that
behaviour has been unchanged for 6 years now. if you still want the
extra finger counting please open a new bug but I should point out that
it's unlikely to be implement for synaptics. libinput has that feature
already, probably better to use that then.

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: xfree86-driver-synaptics

  My Synaptics touchpad has physical buttons below the bottom edge of
  its surface. As a result, when I try to perform click by pressing the
  bottom edge of the touchpad I get both a click and a movement. This
  often causes the click to take place after the movement thus causing
  me to click on the wrong icon, button, etc.

  The driver should allow the deactivation of the area over the physical
