Public bug reported: Touchpad handling appears to have been refactored somewhat in bionic - which led to the surprise of having my settings changed on upgrade .... but even when I tracked down the new gsettings property of org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method, it fails to behave as documented, so I cannot get the behaviour I want, and had before.
The code in function meta_input_settings_x11_set_click_method_synaptics added by the patch interprets click-method 'default' as setting specific settings. However, the gsettings schema description says 'default' should mean "left as hardware default". Please change the patch to follow that, and not change the settings at all - as having a way to tell mutter to get out of the way and let the user configure their own settings is more useful than insisting on applying a given hardcoded choice.
