Fedora 13 (Goddard)


Release notes


Xorg configuration

Xorg has gained a /etc/xorg.conf.d directory where configuration snippets can be dropped. One of the first users of this is the input stuff. With the deprecation of HAL and the move to udev, a replacement for the fdi files is needed.


Tap to click on touchpads.

While you can enable tap to click on touchpads on a per user basis. You may also want this set at the gdm login screen.

Dropping the following into a .conf file in /etc/xorg/conf.d will do that.

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "tap-by-default"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"

Cursor theme

F13 has a new cursor theme. To revert to the previous one

   # yum install bluecurve-cursor-themei

and change the theme in the pointer tab in the Fedora theme (System -> Preferences -> Apperance)
