 We had this working in 10.1 and previous. S Page
 (http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.laptop.olpc.devel/31566), Martin
 and Paul all agree it was working.

 For some reason it broken for 11.2. As far as I can see, X defaults to
 having this functionality disabled by default, I don't know how it got
 enabled in 10.1 (perhaps unintentionally). The reason that it works on my
 normal desktop in GNOME is because GNOME tweaks that setting at runtime,
 perhaps based on my user profile.

 It can be fixed by shipping a small InputClass definition in
 /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d that force-enables this option.

 I confirmed that this fixes the problem, and I also did a diff of
 Xorg.0.log before and after to check for any other obvious side effects -
 none noted.

 As a regression with a trivial fix I'm proposing this for 11.2.0.
