Gnome 3.8: pressure on notification tray

Post by davidm » Mon Jul 29, 2013 12:51

In Gnome 3.8, the notification tray should appear when you intensely press the pointer down past the screen bottom.
In GNOME 3.8 the new behavior will use “pressure sensitivity” (a composite of speed and distance) and you will have to push down against the screen edge. That will mean two things:

First, it will be faster, the one second delay is gone
And second, it will mean you don’t get accidental triggers if you leave the pointer at the bottom of the screen.

But in my desktop, I still get the behaviour from 3.6: move the mouse to the bottom and the notification area appears after 1 second delay.

Is there any way to enable the pressure thing, or is it something still missing in Sabayon?

This is working after yesterday's update at last.

have also noticed this, in a live session though (not updated 13.08 obviously) the "bottom panel" does need a little "brute force" to be revealed.. possibly a lower sensitivity setting?? can it (and where and how) be changed/ adjusted or is it, for the lack of a better word, locked, as is??

Haven't tested it, but this might work:
