Add a long-touch right-click context menu to the ComfilePi

The following procedure will configure X Windows so a long-touch (touch and hold) will simulate a right-click and display a context menu.

  1. Install evdev and create a configuration directory.
    sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-evdev
    sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
  2. Create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-right-click.conf with the following contents:
    Section "InputClass"
      Identifier "touchscreen right-click"
      Driver "evdev"
      MatchProduct "Microchip Technology Inc. AR1100 HID-MOUSE"
      Option "EmulateThirdButton" "1"
      Option "EmulateThirdButtonTimeout" "750"
      Option "EmulateThirdButtonMoveThreshold" "50"
  3. Reboot

For more information about the options and their syntax please see the evdev manpage and the InputClass configuration options.
