Description

For context, see:

On the hardware I have I can revert with either one of these commands:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method areas
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method default

I guess that "default" is safer: it means "hardware default" and has more chances to adjust to whatever the hardware supports.

Revert default touchpad click method to hardware defaults (refs: #17045)

GNOME 3.28 switched to the 'fingers' method, that is 2-fingers click only,
which makes some kinds of hardware right-click buttons not work anymore.

Tested on 2 laptops (one with real physical touchpad click buttons, the other one with hidden buttons) ⇒ this fixes the regression. All click operations still work with touch only, for those (like me) who prefer so.
