I try to configure mouse click interval since a single click is recognized as double click by doing it from KDE mouse configuration in system settings; but my attempt doesn't work even (I set the click interval to 2 sec, but doesn't change anything). What is the best way to do this in slackware?
i have java app. i want make my Linux dedicated to that application.such that,when Linux load it start the app, start menu have Shutdown,reboot and my application luncher, only one window , desktop right-click also have the same menu-items as start-menu.
Hi, here's hoping you can help me with this minor annoyance. If I right-click on the desktop I get no menu. I recently installed Zorin, a form of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. In the course of 'setting up' my install, I lost this ability and, having made so many changes so rapidly, it's nigh on impossible to figure out what I did that broke my right-click.
In my top right corner I got all my Ubuntu appindicators that come with Ubuntu 11.04. I also have Dropbox, caffeine and screenlets. Problem is that I cant click on dropbox, caffeine, battery indicator, wlan or sound indicator until I first click on messages menu and slide over to appindicator that I need. When screenlets appindicator is not present there is no problem. Its the same when I had Jupiter installed.
Not sure if this is a bug or not, but the popup menu is now gone. using KDE 4.4.4 opensuse 11.3. Anyone with an idea of what go hosed, or needs to be unset? where in the .kde directory is the file that needs to be changed?
First things first, I've just moved from Ubuntu with Gnome to openSuse with KDE. So I'm lost as doing some things in this environment. However, I'm loving what I'm seeing with suse/kde combo. I'm planning on making an extensive right-click menu to categorize all my applications. Basically I want to have the "start" menu available to me when I right-click. I've google casually for a couple days and haven't found much that helps, but I think its because I'm not using the correct keywords seeing as I'm new to this environment.
I have a feeling I'm going to have to make a [Desktop Entry], but I'm not sure how to handle hierarchy and stuff like that.
I have checked quite a few post without coming up with an answerIhave Lucid 32bit release installed with compiz visual effects normal.I have lost the mounted drive icons from the desktop as well as the ability to save to the desktop or a right click menu on the desktop. Any file saved to the desktop folder does not appear on the desktop.I have reinstalled compiz, the nvidia driver and tried all manner of settings but just can't crack this one
i have ubuntu 10.4i have the following problem:the desktop icons disappearsand the menu when i use the mous right click tooalso, when i try to open any folder i get the following message:Quote:Could not open location 'file:///home/username'Failed to execute child process "kfmclient" (No such file or directory)
This works on my Slackware64 13.1 using KDE 4.4.4, Conky version 1.8.0. This is a simple .conkyrc tweak that doesn't need feh, it doesn't have the distracting faun shadow-border and most importantly, it doesn't disappear when you click your desktop (On my system anyway). These are the relevant sections to edit:
I found that getting rid of the own_window_argb_values yes suggested in other fixes and replacing it with a specific alpha and then changing window type to override solved all my issues. I've noticed no bugs or strange happenings. This seems to be a common problem with a lot of workaround solutions. I think this is a much more elegant way. Edit: Not persistant... After 2 reboots it's back to normal.
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
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.
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.
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.

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 :

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.
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.
ubuntu 10.10, Asus 1005PE netbook, not using mouse but the L-R button and the pad. Still learning linux , and as a reminder from interesting pages I always print pdf, but that is a bit long and sensitive navigation throughout screen to the File/Print menu, than select this and that. I remember seeing it long time ago (v8 or 9) adding the print command to the 3rd mouse button or right click. I'm googleing for this but not much luck, anybody can direct me to a detailed "howto" ?
In recent versions of KDE4, I have been able to assign the application menu to the right mouse button. In 4.6, the only thing that appears is Desktop Settings. Does anyone know when the fix for this will be included in KDE 4.6 updates? And, is it possible to move to a previous version of KDE in 11.4?
I have configured my gnome-menu to come up on right click, and ctrl+right-click for the nautilus pop-up menu using this command
Code: xte "keydown Alt_L" && xte "key F1" && xte "keyup Alt_L" in compizconfig, and setting the button binding to button 3. I had to install a package before this, I don't remember which one though (copy & paste hehehe)
It all works great and it looks good, except for one annoying problem I didnt think of. When I'm playing a game that I need to right-click to perform an action, the menu pops up. (Think StarCraft. Right click to move) Basically what I'm asking is if there is a way to add exception to this? the menu will come up as long as it is not clicked on certain windows?
I always accidentally release right mouse button in any right click menu, so it automatically selects one of highlighted item in this menu. It's mostly the first item, so as example, if I am watching ..... video, and I right click somewhere in the page background, then release the mouse, it makes my browser go BACK one page, because BACK is first item in right click menu in chrome... Also I would like it to make it unable to right click in right click menu to press items in the menu... In other words, right click in right click menu has the same behavior like left click, but I want to disable it. I want it just like in MS windows, where when you click with right click in right click menu it does nothing. I have so many accidents with this right click menu.
Okay,so I successfully created a right click menu in Nautilus Actions Configuration,But when I right click on a file it doesn't show that menu! I did not really create it,I just imported XML document,I clicked save when I done that,I still can't see the menus(I restarted and stuff)
I have a problem when I browse folders and want something to send to my nokia 6300 over bluetooth. In past I just right click and choose "send to..." >> "bluetooth" and choose device from list. Few weeks ago it stopped working - I click "send to" and nothing will happen, menu will not show. My ubuntu version is 10.04 (lucid)
I've been mostly using XFCE for a long time, but I'm finally giving KDE4 a serious try. Overall I like it pretty well, but there's one thing I like in XFCE that I can't replicate in K: I want to be able to right-click on the desktop to bring up the full apps menu. On XFCE the default behaviour is that right-clicking anywhere on the desktop background (anywhere not on a window, basically) will bring up the full "Start" menu with all the app categories, preferences/settings, etc. (I put "Start" menu above in quotes because I know that's really Windows-specific terminology. So no need to give me crap about that, kids.) Right now, when I right-click on the desktop in K I get a small menu with Konsole, Run, Activities, and Desktop Settings. What I want to happen is a full launcher menu like I have on the panel.
