If a touch input is detected it is treated as a rectangle selection, much like eraser input is treated as an eraser.

Not added to configuration yet, will submit new patch with that done.

    there's a bug, in that you forgot to add a line in xo-interface. when opening the app, the status of the checkbox in the menu was always off, even if the config was correctly loaded. You need to add
    GLADE_HOOKUP_OBJECT (winMain, optionsTouchSelect, "optionsTouchSelect");
    in the relevant part of xo-interface.c

    thank you for your work

    Patch on the way.
    I would suggest that someone rename the "Use Eraser Tip" menu item to "optionsUseEraserTip" rather than "optionsButtonMappings" but xournal's undergoing a rewrite in C++ at the moment anyway.

    New patch, working with config.

    I have found that the touchpad on the HP Touchsmart tm2 is counted as a touch input, presumably this is the case on other models of laptop also. I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature.

    Not sure the new patch fixes the problem actually.

    Testing.
