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)
1) Any process (including boot, shutdown, download, open programs, etc) is freeze (don't have any progress) until I move the mouse or hit any button, so for install and use my ubuntu I have to keep moving my mouse and as you imagine is VERY TIRED.2) I get some general freeze on random times, neither the mouse, keyboard or process move, I notice that if I unplug power it unfreze, and I can work for some time.This 2 problems annoy me a lot, and I suspect is a problem related to my Netbook Model, I read about someone that has the same problem but no solution there.
This is what I did:I Try Ubuntu loading from my USB memory (1GB), run very good but with the 2 problems, but I thought it can be resolved installing.I installed along side with W7, couldn't boot Ubuntu, so I configured GRUB2 and it could enter now, but if I don't press **** after selecting Ubuntu it give me the BusyBox, and then the same 2 problems.I get rid of my W7 and did a Full Install on my 160GB HDD, hoping it can work fine, but no.I install all updates and no effect on that.
On my 10.04 desktop i have some maps from a user that doesn't exist anymore, but I can't do anything with it. Is there a possibility to make a "open as sudo" or something like that in the mouse menu? I haven't found an other way to do something with these maps
I was using lucid since beta 2 without problems, but since few days I can't get a menu when I click on the right mouse button. Doesn't work on the desktop or when for example I want to rename a file using the right mouse button. Is this a bug from gnome or a new properties?
When I right click my desktop for example, to create a folder / change Desktop Background, my right click menu appears, but the moment i move my mouse onto it (mouse over) it disappears. Changed to 3 different mice with the same problem. I've just worked out that switching to console and back (CTRL + ALT + F1) then login and CTRL+F7 fixes the menu?? So I'm guessing this could be a bug with something gnome related?
I incorrectly changed the command under Folder Properties to open all folders with the wrong program rather than the Ubuntu default program. I now can't open the folder properties screen using the right mouse button. How do I get back to the properties screen so I can change this back to the default open folder command?
I had Microsoft Office installed with wine and after I removed it I still get Microsoft Office Applications in the Right-click open with menu. Does anybody know where to edit those entries for removal?
so in Windows I remember I could add to the registry under the * folder in classes_root under Shell, I could add any command I wanted. That way no matter what file I right clicked on I could have EDIT or OPEN with that file.
Is there a way to add this to the gnome right click menu? A default always there for all filetypes? I have UltraEdit Linux installed and want to have the same functionality I had when I used to use windows.
just click the [Computer] button at the left-bottom corner of the GNome desktop, the menu will shown, now press the printscreen button [PrtSc], nothing happen. no screenshot was made.or open any application , then click the menu like [file], let the menu list shown, then press [PrtSc] button, same thing, nothing happen.
I have successfully mapped the plus-minus key on the keyboard to emulate the Wheel/Middle Mouse Button click with this shell script run at startup:
Code: #!/bin/sh xmodmap -e "keycode 49 = Pointer_Button2" xkbset m
This is so I can rotate the view in Blender without clicking the wheel, because the wheel also zooms, and it's too easy to zoom inadvertently. The remaining problem is panning, a Shift-MMB combination. Now I'm lost - how can I map a key (or better still, a Shift-key combo) to the Shift-MMB click?
I would like to assign right-mouse-click behaviour to a hardware button. I can associate a keypress, or a combination of keypresses with an "xdotool click 3" command via the Gnome keyboard shortcuts.
I have the scancode of the hardware button so can use
setkeycodes scancode keycode
to mimic any key of my keyboard. However, I don't want the hardware button to mimic a single key of my keyboard that is already in use, since then the keyboard key will also activate xdotool.
So I think I need:
- either a way to associate that particular scancode with an (outlandish) keypress combo rather than a single keypress;
- or a keycode which is not currently in use, to bind to the scancode. Are there any like that and how would I find out? In the Gnome Keyboard Shortcuts list there is stuff like "XF86AudioMedia" which I'm not using -- but does that correspond to a numerical keycode value which setkeycodes understands?
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.
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 ...".
Not sure if this goes here or the hardware section. I've added another sata drive to my system formatted to Ext4, but i have to put in my password for root priveliges (spell?) to access it. I can understand from a security point of view about the password, but there is no way to create new folders or even copy/paste data to it, as the options are not available with the right/click mouse.My external USB drive requires no password, and i can do all the usual functions with it, but not so with the internal sata drive. Is there a way to enable the internal drive for 'normal' operations.
to be able to copy a file, then right click my mouse and select paste as and save the file with a different file name. It will save me from making a duplicate and then renaming it, or defaulting to command line (which I live in anyways). Or how about copying some text and then just right clicking in a file manager and pasting the text as a file. It would save me the time to open an editor and pasting it and then saving it. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to grab the latest clipboard entry and redirect it to a file. Scripting the functions shouldn't be hard at all. I would think the hardest part would be to implement the right click menu function across different X environments. For example I use KDE 3.5. I don't even know how to edit the right click menu options (Google should fix that). I could setup the changes for my system, but it would only work on KDE 3.5 then. I would have to figure out how to do it for Gnome, Xfce, iceWM, Englightenment, etc. Should this be a standard feature given by the OS?
I just upgraded from F11 to F12. Everything seems to be nice except mouse. The mouse buttons (both left and right, except middle one) are accidently frozen for some times. It could happen when opening a new tab in Firefox, launching a program, opening a new windows. I cannot click anywhere but can use mouse wheel. I have to log off/ log in and it becomes normal. It does not happen so frequently (around 3-4 hours) but it is really annoying.
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...)
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
hardware HP pavillion 20. The only avalible resolution is 1600x900. /etc/debian_version 8.1 GNOME Terminal 3.14.1 xnee 3.19
I remove the applications which i don't use from main-menu. Now i can not see them from "open with" menu when i right click to a file.
Also it will be very nice if Ubuntu can show me on the "open with" menu the possibilities of applications which can open properly the file type which i want to open. I try to configure with ubuntu-tweak's "file type manager" but it is not possible to configure all of file types. I think Ubuntu's applications must to know which applications has to show for which file types. And i don't know how to do that. I need an application like this : url
I get a new user from the same OS, and i see that the same problem still there... For example many many compressed files, audio or graphic files are not associated with vlc or gimp.
I try to configure from system files of gnome but it is very complicated.
I have fedora 10 installed on vmware, running on win7. today when I try to start up fedora, after logging in, I faced this error: Oops! sealert hit an error! ..... there is no space left on device..... could not attach t desktop process... when I click "ok" button I just can see a black page and a mouse cursur circling forever..I really need to work with my fedora beacause i dont have any backup of my files ... btw, I allocated 8g hard disk to my machine on vmware. I don't have any idea how to boot and login from a console not a gui
I'm brand new to Linux and Ubunto 10.04.On the menu bar at the top of my desktop I seem to have attracted some kind of bug!The Log Out Symbol repeats itself across almost the entire menu bar and I cannot remove it. If I remove other buttons from the menu the space is immediately replaced by more Log Out Buttons.When I hover on the icon I get the message 'Log out of this session to log in as a different user' and when I right-cllick to click on 'Remove from Panel' or 'Move' nothing happens.It is not possible to right-click on another part of the menu bar to change the Menu Properties.
