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 :: 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

Code:
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.

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.

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

Code:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

[Code]....

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

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

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 :: (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 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 ...

Code:
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:

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

[Code]....

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

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"!

Code:

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

Ubuntu :: Right-Left Click On Touchpad?

Jun 30, 2010

I finally got 10.04 installed and I am loving it so far! Very quick! But I do have some nuance 'problems'. Here is one for I can not find a solution. In previous versions of Ubuntu, I was able to click on my touchpad with two fingers that replicated a right-left click to open a link in a new tab. Now it raises a popup menu in the browser asking how to open the link.

I have tried this in Chrome, Opera and Firefox and have the same issue in all browsers, which leads me to believe this may be a Gnome setting. How do I change this behaviour? There was nothing in the mouse preferences to change this.

Ubuntu :: Touchpad On Pavilion Dm4 - Can't Right Click

Nov 28, 2010

Excuse the horrid formatting, this was copy/pasted from the #ubuntu IRC and to be extremely honest I can't be bothered to remove every space. I have a Pavilion dm4 and it has two areas on the bottom of the touchpad to designate right and left clicks. This mostly doesn't work on Ubuntu in the fact that it recognizes any taps on either tap zone as a left click. Instead, I have it set so if I tap anywhere on the pad it makes a left click. There should be, and there are, many ways in the mouse configuration window to simulate a right click using only a touchpad. None of these work. Changing mouse orientation doesn't do anything, "dwell click" also does nothing,

and, the oddest part of this problem, whenever I try to turn "Simulated Secondary Click" off (it doesn't work anyways, but just to try to toggle it), the entire theme of my desktop changes to a gray Windows '95ey look. The only way to get rid of this is to close and reopen the mouse preferences window.My computer is fairly new and the Ubuntu installation is less than a day old. I didn't do anything that I think could cause this. The problem is that I can't right click. Afterword: I installed two scripts from [URL]. They didn't do anything I couldn't already do, and they did not make it possible for me to right click.

Ubuntu :: Natty 11.04 Touchpad No Tap-to-click?

So my Natty install is finally starting to come together, internet works, I'm getting used to the new Unity interface, and well everything seems under control. Now there are just a few issues remaining. The most annoying for now is that there is no tap-to-click on my netbook's touchpad (and in the list of features I think they mentioned several other interesting new things with the touchpad).The other thing is that I can't open Synaptic from the menu/application list. It works from the terminal, though,

Hardware :: 9.10 - How To Disable Tap To Click On Touchpad

Feb 17, 2010

I'm on a new netbook using Ubuntu 9.10 and I cannot figure out how to disable tap-to-click on my touchpad. I figured it would be simple enough to use SHMConfig, however; every post I've seen says they have something similar to this in xorg.conf

Code: Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
EndSection Instead, I have this ...

Code: Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
End Section

I have tried simply changing the driver entry to "synaptics," however when I run SHMconfig it says the driver hasn't been loaded.
