Nice comments, people.
Just one more question about the topic.
I'm thinking about a workaround meanwhile there's a solution for the
problems I listed.
Is there an X config option or so to disable left clic on the touch screen?
that way I could move the cursor without touching buttons and moving window=
when I don't want to, and do clic on the A/B button when I need left/right
Thanks again in advance.
