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.

General :: Get A Mouse Event To Cause Keystroke?

Mar 14, 2010

I have a Logitech Media Play mouse with many buttons. I'm using xbindkeys to create some shortcuts to programs e.g. firefox, gnome-terminal--these work wonderful. What I cannot figure out is how to get the buttons to work for the media player(Ubuntu>System>Keyboard Shortcuts>Sound). I set shortcuts using my win key and letters, hoping to use xbindkeys to send out a keystroke. I have tried to use xmacro but to no avail. xdotool was not helpful, I think it may be outdated(desktop/workspace functions did not work).

My preferred option would be to get mouse events to keystrokes working with xbindkeys and program x(x being whatever works); however, just getting my media buttons to interact with the media play is my ultimate goal.

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; ./
modified script runs
modified script runs
does not work and 2 hours meta-crawlers

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

Programming :: Java Applets - Mouse Dragging Event

Jan 4, 2010

I know how to deal with a mouse click event like so:


But was happens when I am dealing with mouse dragging? Will my implementation of mouseDragged() get called for every pixel moved? So I just getX() and getY() like with a mouse click?

Also, in order to know when mouse dragging stops and starts, do I also have to put code in mousePressed and mouseReleased?

Hardware :: Map Mouse Button To Modifier Key

Sep 19, 2010

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.

Software :: Mouse Button As Modifier?

Apr 20, 2011

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).

(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.

Software :: Using Keyboard Key As Mouse Button?

May 7, 2010

The mouse buttons on my machine are frustratingly loud, unreliable and hard to press down. (the touchpad thingy that *moves* the mouse works great though)

I would like to map a certain (unused) keyboard key I have, to do the job that the left mouse button does (i.e. the opposite of what tons of mouse-keyboard mapping programs do).

I'm open for suggestions on how to accomplish this, but I would prefer using xmodmap, possibly in conjunction with xdotool. Thus, I need someway to map events as follows: (button1=leftmouse; keycode123=keyboard key alternative)

KeyPress 123 ---> ButtonPress Button 1
Keyrelease 123 ---> ButtonRelease Button 1

Compiz is also a great way to map stuff to xdotool commands, but it doesn't handle separate KeyDown/KeyUp event.

Fedora :: 4th & 5th Mouse Button Doesn't Work

Oct 10, 2009

I have a 5 button mouse and the 4th and 5th buttons are useful for skipping back or forwards while surfing with Firefox. It would be nice if I could skip back in Nautilus too, but it doesn't work. (Alt+LeftArrow & Alt+RightArrow as keybord equivalent) Is there a possibility to use this buttons in Nautilus too?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Mouse Button Locks

Sep 30, 2010

I downloaded Fedora 13 (x86_64) just two or three days ago, and installed it in VMWare Workstation. The problem that I am having is that the OS will randomly think that I am holding down the left mouse button, which I am clearly not. I only installed the base system (development pack), and did not add any of ther other repositories. I would really like to be able to use Fedora 13, and not just have it sitting there on my HDD, and also use it as a server operating system (because of the configuration tools)

Ubuntu / Apple :: Remap Mouse Button 3?

Jan 26, 2010

wondering if any other ppc users have had the issue whereby, after the first unsuccessful power down (or sometimes the second or third) of a fresh ubuntu 9.10 install, mouse button 3, which is normally mapped to F12, becomes function (fn) + F12.? This is really annoying as you now have to use two hands to activate the little drop down menu. So i tried remapping mouse button three to that strange little key beside the left arrow on an ibook keyboard that looks like a picnic table and which, under os x, renames stuff.

I ran "gksu gedit /etc/sysctl.d/10-arch-specific.conf" and edited it accordingly: mouse button 3 from keycode 88 to 104. It works, but i still have to press function to activate it and fn + F12 still works simultaneously (though it is no longer defined in the conf file), and my new key doesnt offer the same functionality (eg, it doesnt give spell check options in firefox where fn + F12 does). Arg. Anybody know how to make it so that i can activate mouse button three without having to press function?

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 :: Epiphany Mouse Back Button?

Oct 12, 2010

I have been trying out several newcomer browsers (using webkit) as alternatives to Firefox, which seems increasingly slow to me.Midori and Arora both allow the back button of my mouse to work, as does Firefox.However, Epiphany, which would be my first choice, does not, and I can't find any way whatsoever of configuring it to do so.I can't see why such a 'flagship' app should lack such an essential feature.

Ubuntu :: Left Mouse Button Cannot Work Sometimes

Oct 16, 2010

While Login into ubuntu, open firefox for sometime, my left mouse button usually cannot work, while right button is OK and keyboard is also OK. Mouse pointer can be moved,however left click shows no reaction(when i move the mouse pointer to some certain icon, the icon can be highlighted just as usual but left click still shows no reaction).

I doubted this may be firefox's problem, but when I kill firefox-bin and firefox process through the terminal(keyboard is ok and i can use ALT+F2 to enter gnome-terminal), Left mouse button still cannot work. And then I have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and reboot the system. My ubuntu is 10.10, updated several days ago(this problem has been existed before the update)

Ubuntu :: Mouse Thumb Button Configuration?

Nov 5, 2010

Running Ubuntu Studio 10.04 with an MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000. By default, my thumb button is acting as a "Forward" button, but I want it to be my "Back" button. I have not installed anything like imwheel, nor do I want to, especially because the button support is obviously already there, it just needs to be configured to a new command. My xorg.conf looks like this (at least the parts of it that I think are relevant,


I have tried messing with Emulate3Buttons and the ZAxisMappings, but there were no changes. Please tell me if I am in the right place? Or is there another program or something running already that is controlling my mouse.

Debian Hardware :: Mouse Tracking Error - Mouse Not Tracking Correctly

Jan 8, 2011

I had been running "Etch" and upgraded to "Lenny". Now my mouse is NOT tracking correctly. When I move the mouse and then press and release the 'ctrl' key to show where the mouse pointer is the circle indicators are not where the pointer is. I therefore cannot make any selections from menus as 'lenny' thinks the mouse is somewhere other than where the pointer is. Also are there keyboard hot keys that i can use to access the menus?

Fedora Hardware :: Disable Left Mouse Button?

Jul 8, 2011

I have a question - how to disable the left mouse button in Fedora 14? I do not mean to replace the buttons, only the total exclusion of the left button. I mean that as a result of a error mouse clicks itself, so I swapped it in Preferences on the right and now I want to disable. I would be very grateful if you would tell me how to do it. Maybe should I replace left mouse button with middle mouse button? But how to do it?

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.

Ubuntu :: Low Level Way Of Listing Which Mouse Button Does What In Gnome

Jan 23, 2010

Is there some low-level way of listing which mouse button does what in Gnome? It seems my middle mouse button is mapped to something besides a middle mouse click (button 3). For example, to move or pan in apps like Xmind or blender, you need to click on hold the MMB. The app will work like expected for a split second then stop, making it useless.

This is one of the most frustrating issues I find with Gnome/Linux/etc. There is a million places to set global inputs, but no place to find them. I have been through every control panel, every compiz plugin, xorg, gconf etc, and can't find what the MMB is set too (or any other input for that matter). I know that somewhere MMB on a window title bar will send it to the back, but can't find where that is either
