Do we have the special touch function with Sailfish? It is very good while using the with gloves. I tasted it before flashing Sailfish. Is there about possibility to enable this in Sailfish?

You can do it using this command, which was in a thread in TMO:

devel-su echo 1 > /sys/devices/virtual/input/clearpad/glove

It worked for me over the winter but I think it occasionally caused a black screen which required a reboot. if I remember correctly it needs to be reapplied after a reboot. To reverse it change the 1 to a 0.

I think this is not a software feature per se but rather provided by the built-in hardware. SailfishX might lack optimizations but I've been able to use my phone with gloves on a few occasions

is there a chance that.on.some.devices this feature is disabled? In android it can be controlled and when it is enabled there is.a circle shown on the screen while using it.
