Hello, 

i have a pixel 6 with android 12. My non blocking scenes are blocking touch actions. i know the following but i can't get it work :(

Note: Windows of type TYPE_APPLICATION_OVERLAY will not be trusted.

Untrusted touches are blocked by default on devices running Android 12 or later. To allow untrusted touches, run the following ADB command in a terminal window:

# A specific app adb shell am compat disable BLOCK_UNTRUSTED_TOUCHES com.example.app # All apps # If you'd still like to see a Logcat message warning when a touch would be # blocked, use 1 instead of 0. adb shell settings put global block_untrusted_touches 0

Every touch which is within the scene is blocked. Strange thing is, that this occures in every app and homescreen but not in the tasker ui.
and im pretty sure that this problem is linked to my pixel or to android 12. the same tasks and scenes works fine on my old pixel 2 with android 11.

can i provide somehow more infos or would a logcat help you for debugging?

For example in chrome I can touch and swipe everywhere but not in the transparent white scene called test. In the tasker ui/App itself I can touch everywhere as expected like the scene was never created

hey i have a fix:

adb shell settings put global block_untrusted_touches 0

unlike the command above, all apps are now granted these rights. it's a pity that it's only successful for this way, but it now works again.

Thank you! I've now integrated this into Tasker so it changes the setting for you if needed.
