OpenSUSE Install :: Mouse Right Button Is Not Working On KDE In 11.3?
Jan 18, 2011
I am using openSUSE 11.3 in Compaq presario v3000. Its working fine. One morning I found that, my home folder is deleted from the desktop and my mouse right-button is not working on desktop. What can I do?
Suddenly the mouse middle button paste feature does not work in Bluefish and OpenOffice. It is driving me crazy. I have become so used to this feature I am constantly forgetting to ctl c/v to cut and paste.
It works everywhere else. ( For example, I can use it in this text box that I am typing this message in. ) and when I select text in either Bluefish or OpenOffice it shows up in Klipper. Strangely, if I select that text in Klipper I can paste it into either application with the middle button.
This just started a few days ago. I have no idea what changed on my system. It is a KDE4 desktop, if that is relevant.
I have a 'Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000'. In addition to the regular left/right click and scroll wheel it has an extra button on the side. In previous versions of Ubuntu I was able to remap this button to act as double-click using 'xbindkeys'. However, in Lucid this no longer seems to work. X seems to know about all of the buttons on the mouse since 'xinput' lists the device as having 13 buttons and labels button 8 as 'Button Side'. However, 'xev' does not show a button event when I press the button. Instead it shows:
I'm having a problem with gnome. When I press a multimedia key on my keyboard (or obstensibly other hotkeys although I haven't figured out exactly what). My left-mouse button stops responding. The right mouse button works fine and the mouse tracks fine. I can go into the mouse control panel and switch it to a left handed mouse and the left mouse button works, but not the right. I ran 'xinput test "HP Mouse"', and I can see the left mouse clicks coming through. So X11 at least thinks it's coming through. I've got nothing interesting that I can find in /var/log. This is really generic USB hardware. HP Mouse and Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard.
After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have a big problem that makes ubuntu unusable. It seems like my left mouse button has stopped working. Left mouse clicks are not registered (although right clicks are). I've tested with 3 mouses (all USB, 1 wireless, 2 wired) and all show the same problem. All three mouses work fine under Windows 7 on the same computer and under ubuntu on different computers.
Right now I can't do anything, does anyone have a good suggestion how I might go and start troubleshooting this?
I upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 then 10.10. Now my left mouse buttons doesnt work when I click the pplications menu. Sometimes it doesnt work at all. left or right click. This is very frustrating to say the least. I have seen a few posts that look similiar and have tried what they sugested, but it still doesnt work. I have tried different mice, but it is the same problem. I dont see any error msgs in any logs I look in. Im thinking my next step is to reinstall, which Im not too excited about.
I use a Kensington Wireless Netbook Mouse.It has worked well in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04.For some reason in 10.10 it works, but every now and again it sticks for a second or two. Sometimes the left button stops working.If I pull out the dongle for the mouse and put it back in my mouse works fine.
I have a recent installation of openSUSE 11.4_64bit with KDE as desktop environment and like in all other linux distros my mouse middle button has a problem when clicked and dragged. The effect that it does when I click in the scroll button and move up and down is the same as when I rotate the button and it does nothing when I move to the side. Usually in programs like google earth (just an example) this is a very useful function as is used to set direction to navigate and angle and then this setting just does zoom when moved up/down and nothing else. It is also very annoying that every time that I click the middle button in a browser it goes back to the previous search in the default browser search engine. I already tried some setting in yast but no difference and forum search didn't retrieved a lot of info.
Was running out of room on / and set in Yast to delete /tmp on startup. Also deleted /var/log and /var/tmp while logged in. Rebooted and now mouse and keyboard (both USB) not working. Keyboard works on grub menu. Also works now in XP. Tried reconnecting (sync & plug unplug) different usb ports and nothing. Gave it a few minutes on startup and still nothing. Plugged in a PS2 keyboard and the lights just blink after startup and it will not work either.
openSuse 11.4 64bit fresh install, KDE 4.6.0. Now I am probably being obtuse, but If I click on the wonderfully named "My Computer" I get, among other things, a display of Disk Information; hard drive partitions and any DVDs or CDs. If I let my mouse cursor alight on any of these, I get a message "Press the right mouse button for more options (such as Mount or Eject)" But if I press the right mouse button, I don't get those options; I get a message "Open in new window, Open in new tab, Open with ..., Create file project with K3b, and Compress ...".
I have a Logitech VX Revolution, and I would like to change the "search/find" button to be used to middle click as opposed what it currently does, opening a new google tab in firefox. The mouse settings in System Settings does not have a tab for editing what the buttons do. (I thought there should be a Logitech tab, but I guess that is for USB only)
Ive been using opensuse for a little while now. Recently ran into a problem My favorite mouse broke, so i went out and got a travel one. It has a very toucht third button under the scroll wheel. Apperently this button is to paste, but every time i scroll, it makes my life miserable, especially when im reading a lengthy page in firefox. I cannot figure out how to program the buttons. Ive googled, and seen some programs that MIGHT help. but this seems to be something that is built in to the OS. The mouse yast plugin doesnt give you the choice of shuting off the third button, or even reassigning it. I want the paste functionality GONE from my **** mouse
Hi, I have had a frustrating problem for the past few months where performing a 'left-mouse-button-drag' operation (i.e. holding down on a scroll bar, drawing a line in a graphics application, connecting a wire in Labview) will often fail to acknowledge when the mouse button is released by the user. The OS continues to believe the button is being held down (as far as I can tell). From this point, *sometimes* the mouse button might release if I ctrl+alt+del or right click around the place, but mostly I need to restart openSUSE to fix the issue. This occurs every 10 minutes or so, and after searching for a solution for the past few months, I now write in hope that this is a known issue, and there is a solution. Of course the problem could be with VMWare, but I have also Mandriva, DSL and Puppy Linuz installed, and none show this same problem.
I followed the sticky about setting up wireless and I have come to an issue where the WLAN switch which is on this computer can be pressed, the light comes on, but no WLAN. When I looked in dmesg, this is what I get:
ipw2100: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection firmware: requesting ipw2100-1.3.fw eth0: Radio is disabled by RF switch.
Notice it says that the 'Radio is disabled by switch' in dmesg. I can press that switch until the end of the world comes and it does absolutely nothing but make the WLAN light put on a light show. And it shows the wlan to be unassociated with any clients. So, what are my options to get this Wireless up and working?

I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.
CNEE(1) General Commands Manual says this. RECORD OPTIONS --first-last Print only first and last of multiple successive MotionEvent. So I try this. my test window is Calculator 3.14.1 cnee --record --mouse --keyboard --time 5 --store-mouse-position --first-last --stop-key h -o xnee.xns -e xnee_record.log -v;The result is, xnee.xns lists every mouse movement.But I only need to record the mouse location when there is a mouse button event. it seems --first-last does not work. How can I make it work?I use

how I can set the top button on my mouse to be a shortcut for the desktop effect "Present Windows"? I have a Logitech MX900 mouse and the button I'm talking about is the one on the top that looks like two overlapping rectangles.See picture here: ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing
I installed SLED 11 (and openSuse 11.1 as well) but the wireless button(WIFI ON/OFF) which is next to power button of my laptop does not work. It worked in vista (formatted the HD and installed SLED 11 as soon as I bought the notebook ) the wireless driver is Ath5k. The button should actually light up the LED and if the Wireless card is active LED should be BLUE, and ORANGE if the wireless is disabled.. Now its always ORANGE!
I tried to capture the hardware address of the LED but it was a failure! (previously I configured Touchpad ON/OFF switch by myself writing a small script after retrieving values from dmesg)...
So the main issue I have is WIFI On/Off switch (and LED) doesn't work well...
just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

This is an intermittent problem. My mouse works on boot, but stops working periodically. Once it stops, I have to reboot the computer. The problem is more than a little annoying. My hardware and software is as follows:
I have a MX 518 which as 5 additional buttons, I'm trying to bind the thumb button to Control or Shift. I'm fighting against it since yesterday, I tried many things : easystroke, imwheel, xbindkeys/xvkbd. I'm a bit new to Linux so I can still miss something very important. I read a tutorial about that mouse, all went well but it isn't explained how to set up what I wish.
As I'd like to be able to fully control my desktop with both my keyboard and my mouse, I wrote a .xbindkeysrc.scm script to make two of my eight mouse buttons work as modifiers. For instance, b:9 + wheel now changes volume.
Only problem is, I accomplish this by emulating a key press with a modifier held, and the modifier seems to stick randomly after the mouse buttons have been released.
I would be very happy if anyone could point out the errors in the script below (or with the software used, I don't know how reliable xvkbd is).
Code: (define (display-n str) "Display a string then newline" (display str)
The first part declares some base functions for the keystrokes to be sent with xvkbd. Also, the function to reset the bindings on relesae of the modifier is here. (As you may see, I already tried to put in some code to specifically reset the modifiers, with no results.) The second part contains the default bindings for buttons 10-12 when no modifier is held. The third and fourth part specify the actions when modifiers are held, usually to send a keystroke or to run a command. The fifth part performs the bindings for the first, second and third level.
