Ubuntu :: Double-click Menu Button To Close Window?

Apr 22, 2011

I've been using this feature since Win3.1 days. Double-click the menu button on the top-left of the window to close it.It doesn't work for me right now in KDE, and I can't find any option to enable it. Googling gave a few hits of people requesting this feature in gnome, but no clear instructions on how to enable it in KDE or whether it's possible. (Though perhaps my Google-fu is just weak...)

General :: Disallow Closing Last Emacs Window Via Window-Manager Close Button

Jul 8, 2011

I like to start Emacs as part of a login script and leave it running for the duration of my login session (which is typically weeks).

I have scripts to call emacs-client which will allow me to use a file-manager or Windows Explorer to locate files and right-click to edit them in Emacs.

I often end up with a lot of emacs windows (frames) open and I like to just be able to close them by clicking on the MS-Windows or KDE X button at the top-right.

The trouble is, if the window is the last one, this will shut down emacs which will lose all kinds of interesting history information.

As a work-around I use C-x 5 0 which won't let me close the last frame but this is often not as convenient as using the mouse

Does anyone know how to configure Emacs so that it can intercept the Window-Close button of the last frame to either request confirmation or simply disallow it?

On MS-Windows, disallowing closing of the last window may cause logoff to hang if emacs is still running but I'm not too worried about that.

Ubuntu :: Double Click Namebar To Restore Window

Jul 20, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu Netbook on my laptop and have tweaked it by removing Window Picker and replacing it with NameBar. The only problem I have is that I can no longer double click the title bar to restore a maximized window. Is there any way to change this?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 "toggle Window Shaded" Double Click

Apr 29, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 seems to have lost a feature in window management, or more likely I forgot how I set up the behavior I have. Here's my problem:

The windowshade behavior caused by double clicking the title bar of a normal sized window seems to have disappeared in 10.04.

A double-click on the title bar of a window caused it to roll up, like a window shade. This made the main part of the window disappear leaving only the title bar visible. Another double-click restored the window to normal size.

Yes, there is a setting in the compiz-setting-manager (General -> keybindings -> toggle window shaded) that will toggle window shade from the keyboard. However the double-click toggle has gone away.

Ubuntu :: Right Mouse Click Freeze / When Right Mouse Button To Open Options Menu It Freezes And Does Not Open Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

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.

My System Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Western Digital 250 GB Hard Drive
Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22)
(Used Desktop Install CD)

Ubuntu :: Single Mouse Click Registering As Double Click?

Mar 13, 2010

About a week ago I installed some updates. What they were I don't remember. After I did that my mouse started acting up. Now about half the time when I single click it registers as a double click. Also when I click and drag to select text anywhere it'll randomly do another click screwing up that process.

So far I think the problem is when I press the left mouse button it registers the left click and then when I release, it randomly registers another left click.

The mouse itself works fine if I take it to another PC that's using windows.

OS: Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
Mouse: Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0

Ubuntu :: Changing The Double Click To A Single Click In 10.04

Aug 9, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS has no immediately apparent way that I can see for changing the mouse behavior from the default double-click to single-click. There appears to be some type of kludgy, but unsatisfactory fix for this unwanted behavior in the Accessibility-option, under Mouse-Preferences.

General :: Mouse Single-click Equals Double-click - Can't Select The Entire URL By Clicking

Apr 13, 2011

when i click my mouse on something, it sometimes registers as two clicks. it doesn't happen all the time, but frequently enough to be annoying. for example, when i click a videos video to pause it, it often opens into fullscreen (which you normally click twice to do). also, in the url bar of chromium, i can't select the entire url by clicking. i now need to use ctrl+a. that's also because when i try to select the url, the highlight randomly disappears.

if i have multiple windows open, my click on the first "x" of the top-most window also closes the next window. i'm on linux mint 10. it's not really important, but it drives me crazy sometimes when my mouse doesn't work the way i want it to.

Hardware :: Single Mouse Click Acts As A Double Click

Aug 18, 2010

Code:
linux-uitj:/home/anisha # uname -a && cat /etc/*release
Linux linux-uitj 2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2009-10-26 15:49:03 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
openSUSE 11.2 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11.2

If I normally click the Trash icon either in Kmail or in Evolution more than one mail gets deleted in a sequential order! I have to press the click button extremely light to avoid this problem. I have confirmed this problem is not only with the Email clients but even with most other normal applications too. I have changed my mouse twice but the problem persists. Both were USB mice. Below I have provided log information :

Code:
linux-uitj:/home/anisha # dmesg | grep usb

Ubuntu :: Double-click No Longer Selects All?

Jun 20, 2010

I have no idea how, when or why this has suddenly happened but when I double-click in an input box it no longer selects all as it did before. No particular app, this applies to everything with an input/address/search box.

I noticed it wasn't working a couple of days ago in firefox but didn't realise it affected everything til today so I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happened to connect it any particular update or app installed.

I did install gpointing a few days ago but decided I didn't need it and removed it. I don't think I changed any settings but I can't find any settings anywhere for it.

Debian :: No Double Click And Run Option

Jul 15, 2011

I have a custom LXDE installation with mostly the core applications. (Read my signature for a better picture.) Because it is custom I do not have the option to double click and run a Linux (not Windows) executable file. When I try to open the application it says choose an application to open it with. Do I have to install an application like gdebi (except for Linux executable) to be able to just double click and run it?

Fedora :: Double-button Paste In Gnome 3?

May 28, 2011

When I highlight text, then click both mouse buttons, I expect the highlighted text to be retyped where the cursor is. It has always worked that way! But in Fedora 15, the two-finger click just summons the right-clicky menu for a microsecond, then hides it. How can I restore the proper operation of the two-button click in Fedora 15?

OpenSUSE :: Double Click & Rename The File?

Apr 27, 2010

I'm using 11.2 GNOME for a while now..

As far as I know, GNOME can't act like MS or OSX when we wan't to rename a file..you know, when you slightly re click the file name and its ready to be renamed.. instead, I should go right click - context menu - rename to do that.

Is there any setting or apps for these?

Debian Configuration :: Accidental Double-click Prevention ?

Apr 17, 2011

There's a physical problem with my Microsoft mouse (and from what I've heard many other Microsoft and Logitech mice) where it accidentally double clicks during what is intended to be one click from me. I was thinking that surely some software that ignores the next click input from the mouse if it is within say 50ms (At a guess) as the last click would solve this problem and increase the longevity of these mice. Is there an option for this somewhere? Perhaps it would be easy to program a simple script or something for this?
