Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

A way to disable tapping on trackpads: check

Only by using the insecure SHMConfig option. There's a very good reason that it's not enabled by default. The code I've added to Ubuntu is layered over X, so provides the same security level as the rest of the input configuration. It's a little bit of a hack at the moment (but no worse than the Wacom driver's configuration), so I'm not pushing it upstream until I've worked with the X developers to standardise the interface.
