Patch: restore swipe to lock

Your rating: None Average: 5 (18 votes)

Starting with Sailfish OS 2.0, Jolla removed the swipe to lock functionality. This patch restores it, without dropping the new "PowerKey/Top menu".

A full swipe from the top will work as usual (the menu remains accessible).

The behaviour is configurable from Settings -> System -> Gestures.

Latest version works on SailfishOS 3.0.0+.

can i suggests a patch to make? i think its annoying when you are in app and check notifications (you can do this if you have enabled it from options, its something like "left swipe brings up the notification screen always") But when i fully let the notification screen come and then try to swipe from side, it brings me to homescreen
so is it possible to make patch that prevents that to happen and takes me back to app? thanks for ypur amazing work!
