OpenSUSE :: Mouse Middle Button Paste Is Not Working?

Mar 4, 2010

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Mouse Middle Button Mouse Paste No Longer Works In FC14?

Jan 4, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Middle Mouse Button - Can't Figure Out How To Program Buttons

May 31, 2010

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

Ubuntu :: Middle Mouse Button - Disable CAPS LOCK Key?

May 3, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04 (and a new machine) from 8.04 and I can't seem to find a way to have the middle button on my mouse act as a double click like I had it on my old machine. I tried putting the input stanza from my old xorg.conf but then X would not come up. The new tab thing it does in Nautilus is driving me nuts. I see the xorg.conf isn't really used anymore, and there is something about making rules in udev but I can't seem to find the exact wording that I need to make that one rule. I would also like to disable the CAPS LOCK key if anyone knows how to do that without xorg.conf. Maybe someone can point me to a udev tutorial?

Ubuntu :: Allowing Middle Mouse Button Click To Scroll?

May 11, 2010

I want to be able to auto scroll by clicking my middle mouse button. In Firefox you can do this in the about:config easily, but with Google Chrome, I don't know what to do.

There is no Chrome option to allow this, so I guess I'd have to configure some stuff. Does anyone know how to do this? I really prefer Chrome over Firefox, and would like to go back to it, but can't without auto scroll.

Debian Programming :: Trigger Interrupt With Middle Mouse Button In Terminal

Feb 2, 2015

Ctrl-c with middle mouse button (MMB) trigger in running bash script trigger.

The key combination Ctrl-C or "^C" with the keyboard triggered on a running bash script stands for "signal interrupt" (SIGINT) and terminates the process.

For my workflow in the test phase, how I could do that with the MMB-Buffer, followed by the modified script command:

Code: Select allscript runs
script runs
script runs

Signal interrupt and rerun with MMB trigger:

Code: Select all^C; ./script.sh
modified script runs
modified script runs
does not work and 2 hours meta-crawlers

OpenSUSE :: Mouse Highlight For Copy / Paste Stopped Working

Feb 2, 2010

I just noticed that highlighting text and middle button clicking no longer copies and pastes as it has it has been for years. I haven't upgraded anything or installed any new software so this is a bit confusing for me. How I may restore this function? BTW, it doesn't work anywhere, terminal, firefox, etc. For clarity, the mouse itself works, I can point, click, etc... it is just the copy/paste function that has failed -disappeared- Using Suse and KDE desktop

Fedora :: Disable Mouse Center Button Paste Function?

Jun 2, 2010

I found the paste function of the center button is really annoying. Usually I use the center button to scroll up and down inside an editor, but when I scroll really fast occasionally I would press down the center button. The editor ended up paste whatever on the clipboard. Is there a way to disable it? I want the center button to function only like a scroll bar, no paste.

Debian Hardware :: Middle Button Not Working (Logitech USB Receiver)

Apr 24, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie (64-bit) with XFCE

Code: Select all$ uname -srvmo
Linux 3.12-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.12.6-2 (2013-12-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux

And my middle button doesn't work anymore. The problem doesn't seem to be configuration-related as xev, xinput test and cat /dev/input/mice show nothing after clicking the middle button.

Here's the output from xinput:

Code: Select all$ xinput
⎡ Virtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Receiver                      id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                      id=3   [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                id=5   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=6   [slave  keyboard (3)]

[Code] ....

Could it be a kernel issue?

Debian :: Logitech Trackball Middle Mouse Is Not Working Anymore?

Feb 21, 2011

the Squeeze uprgade I also lost the middle mouse functionaly of my Logitech Marble Mouse. I do not remember how I set it up to be honest. I am not sure if it was by default middle was mouse was "pressing 2 buttons on eachside at the same time" or I did set up manually using Xmod or similar tool. I might have even set up in the hal settings. The reason I do not remember exactly is that I used multiple tuts and places to set this up long time ago and now that the functionality is gone I am kind of confused about how to go ahead about it.

Ubuntu :: Disable Middle Click Paste?

Mar 30, 2010

I have been searching for a way to disable middle click in Ubuntu, but all the websites I came across say to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. but when I open that file in Gedit there is no input device section as described in post #3 @ [URL] all I have in xorg.conf is

Code:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

[Code]....

I hate the middle click paste feature as I'm always accidentally pasting text in documents.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Button No Longer Working

May 19, 2010

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:

Ubuntu :: Left Mouse Button Stops Working In 10.10?

Sep 15, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Left Mouse Button Has Stopped Working?

Oct 1, 2010

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?
