Ubuntu :: Cancel Winkey + Middle Click Zooming In Compiz?

Aug 30, 2010

Sometimes I accidentally winkey + middleclick with compiz, which makes the desktop zoom into a small box. So far, every time it happens, I usually just log out, then log back in and it fixed it. Is there a more proper way to return the desktop back to it's normal unmagnified state?

Ubuntu :: (Compiz) Middle Click On Firefox Doesn't Rotate The Cube?

Oct 13, 2010

I was just wondering about something. I have linked the middle click to initiate the cube rotation and it works perfectly except when I have the cursor on firefox. Then it just acts like I middleclicked in firefox itself. Personally I like this behaviour but was wondering why it is JUST firefox that has it. Would be great if I could achieve the same in Blender

Ubuntu :: Tiling And Compiz Zooming Effect?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux and my knowledge about window managers is limited, so please bare with me. I was wondering if anyone knows a decent wm that supports tiling and can also have the zoom effect from compiz (mod+scroll up/mod+scroll down). I know compiz can achieve some tiling with the grid addon but that's not that great. I was looking for something more similar to how xmonad manages windows and workplaces.

Ubuntu :: Found That Two Finger Tapping Touchpad Has Gone From Middle Click To Right Click?

May 1, 2010

I'm newish to the forum, but have been using ubuntu for the past few months.I recently upgraded from eeebuntu (a 9.04 derivative) to 10.04, and found that two finger tapping my touchpad has gone from middle click to right click, (and 3 fingers is now middle instead of right).

From what I've seen, this has been changed since 9.10, but I haven't been able to find a permanent solution yet. Most fixes have been from before and use hal, or other things that don't exist anymore. The one thing I've found does work is using xinput and the command

xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Synaptics Tap Action" 2, 3, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3

But that has to be run every time I start up, and it occasionally reverts while I'm using the computer. I've tried making a script that runs at startup, but neither adding it to the list of startup programs, or autostart folder has worked, but running the script file manually does work. I'm a bit at wits end with this, it's the only issue I've had with 10.04, and I've spent many many hours trying to get it to work (I've also tried gsynaptics and the newer version whose name escapes me right now). Hopefully there's a permanent fix out there.

Ubuntu :: Middle And Right Click With Touchpad (10.04)?

May 11, 2010

I use middle click much more than right with my Asus EEEpc 900, so I prefer to use it with two fingered tap. Default configurations for multiple finger taps are 2 = right and 3 = middle. I got this reversed with this guide ("Make middleclicking work in Firefox again...":[URL] but after an update it doesn't work anymore. I tried to install the .deb again, but Ubuntu tells me that the system already has a newer version of it.

P.S. If only we'd get this configured straight from the GUI of mouse settings like the scrolling options...

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

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24


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

Ubuntu :: Middle / Right Click Drag To Extract Archive?

Oct 30, 2010

I have been looking for a solution to middle or right click dragging an archive to extract it to another folder without any success. It appears this question seems to be asked many times without a single response from anyone.



The fact that right click on archive is also missing a simple 'Extract to...' compounds the problem. [URL]

Ubuntu :: Chromium Middle Click Behavior Changed?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm using chromium browser on a 9.10 desktop pc. I was trying out opera browser 11 for a while and when i switched back to chromium something strange happened. When i press middle click instead of pasting the selection like it used to, it starts page scroll (like windows). I use the daily builds ppa, and i also tried it on my netbook and a virtual machine running 10.04 and 10.10 but there were no changes there. I prefer the default behavior (middle click to paste selection) but i can't find any options for this.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Mouse Middle Click Not Mapped At Xinput Test?

Oct 22, 2010

after migrating my Ubuntu box from 10.4 to 10.10 my middle click button does not work.

If I test using ...

xinput test <device id>

... all my buttons are mapped but one (the middle click): when I use it nothing is logged in the console.

This is the ouput of my mouse properties:

~$ xinput list-props 8
Device 'Razer DeathAdder':
Device Enabled (117):1


I use middle click frequently (opening links in new tabs in Firefox or Copy&Paste in terminal)

Ubuntu :: Gnome Alt/middle-click To Resize Window Doesn't Work Anymore

Nov 4, 2010

I'm a big fan of Gnome's alt/middle-click to resize a window. However, it doesn't work anymore for me, and I believe it stopped working (or got toggled off) when I installed the Unity desktop package (just wanted to check it out).

Fedora Hardware :: Scroll And Middle Click Via Wacom Bamboo Tablet

Jun 17, 2011

I recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen Only (CTL-460). It's a great device and in Fedora 15 (x86_64) it worked out-of-the-box like a charm!

I don't miss the rubber or the extra keys on the tablet. But I'm having quite some trouble, using the pen as a mouse replacement in all day use. The following is with respect to usage outside GIMP and Inkscape (i.e. Firefox, Nautilus etc). What I would really like to have, is:

+ scrolling by pressing the "first button" and simply _moving_ the pen. Just like with my Thinkpad-Trackpoint: Here I press the middle key and can then scroll just by controlling the Trackpoint. Would already be cool, if I could scroll by pressing the "first button" and touching the tablet. A short tap while pressing the "first button" should still be a "middle click"!


Found a solution for "jamming at the edge of the screen". Just resized the "area" a bit (smaller) with xsetwacom...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Synaptic Touchpad In 11.3 - Strange Behaviour With Dragging And Middle Click

Jul 19, 2010

One strange and little annoying issue I notice with my openSUSE 11.3 installation is my Synaptic touchpad behaves way too strange.... Dragging a window or icon - half way around - a click is generated (probably a middle click I guess) and I need to re-drag it again.... In the browser when I try to select a text - again by dragging - a middle click gets generated... The same happens when I use gvim in visual mode too - I end up pasting the code I had selected halfway because of the middle click....

Middle click can be generated only if I press both left and right click buttons - which I'm pretty sure I'm not.... I tried playing around with the touchpad settings but no good.... I'm not able to find anything related to the middle click on the settings application... My touchpad works fine in Ubuntu and was in 11.2 as well.... Yes it works fine in Xp too.

OpenSUSE :: Creating Mouse Shortcuts (middle Click) "xbindkeys And Xte"

Sep 17, 2010

I want the "search" button on my mouse to be a middle click. In my .xbindkeysrc file I have

Code: "xte 'keydown Control_L' 'mouseclick 1' 'keyup Control_L'"# m:225 but it still just selects the google search bar on firefox. Using xev, it shows Code: KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x2600001, root 0xb4, subw 0x0, time 166414200, (1135,637), root:(1139,660), state 0x10, keycode 225 (keysym 0x1008ff1b, XF86Search), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 0 bytes: XFilterEvent returns: False that means its seen as a keyboard button 225 right?

I tried doing something like Code: "konqueror" m:225 to test it, but nothing. Something is overwriting its function. In Configure Desktop > Keyboard & Mouse > shortcut stuff, and didn't see the search button used anywhere.

Ubuntu :: Can't Click On Any Windows In Compiz

May 9, 2010

Just to preface this, I do have compiz running.

I'm facing a bug where any time I click anywhere inside a window, it performs the function of ALT-clicking the window -- just dragging it around the screen. The only way I can do a standard click on the window is if I hold down the ALT key.

I think this is a compiz issue, since it is fixed by killing compiz. I've had this issue before, but I can't remember how I solved it.

Ubuntu :: Able To Click Anything In GIMP With Pen - Wacom And Unity / Compiz Incompatibility

Jul 3, 2011

When working in GIMP using a Wacom pen (which I do a lot), not all the lines I draw show up. Maybe every 1 in 5 lines, just don't show up, and it's like the brush outline freezes. This becomes pretty annoying when drawing, which is why I log in standard GNOME without effects when using GIMP.

There is a minor problem that I think may be related, and that is that sometimes when I open a windows in GIMP, such as the Save or Open dialog, I won't be able to click anything in it with my pen. I then need to click the canvas in the background, and after that everything works. It seems as though the brush is stuck on the canvas, which is similar to what happens when drawing. I've tried different compiz settings with vSync and others, but nothing that made this work. This also seems to only be a problem when using a Wacom pen, and not when using the mouse.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVidia One Click Install - Compiz

Jul 8, 2010

Basically what has happened is that I have installed the nvidia drivers for a 9800 GT from the One-click install for the newer video cards. It seems to have succeeded although I am having difficult activating 3D effects. What happens is that whenever I activate Compiz settings, it works for about 2 seconds (wobbly windows is my test) and then quickly goes back to standard. Is this something I have done wrong or is my hardware incompatible? It works in other distributions I have tried so I'm assuming it is a fault on my part.

CentOS 5 :: Softwares Bugs When Zooming

Oct 15, 2009

When using Gmsh (a mesh software) and Salome (CAD software and for post-processing too) for zooming, the system logs out, and all jobs are killed. I zoom using the middle button of the mouse, by pushing it (withing Gmsh), or pushing the middle button with the Control key (within Salome).But when zooming with the middle button but using the scroll function, that produces the zoom too, the softwares seem to be ok and no immediat crash (but I don't know how many times it will be ok ...).Is there any troubles with graphic libraries ?

PS: OS : CentOS 5.3, recently updated, x86_64. On other linux distribution, no trouble reported by other colleagues.
