Ubuntu :: Single Mouse Click Registering As Double Click?
Mar 13, 2010
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.
OS: Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
Mouse: Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0
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?
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.

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 not sure if I should post this question in "hardware & laptops", or "Desktop Environments", because this is a hardware problem on a desktop computer.
Description of Problem:There is another thread that discussed this same problem that I'm having: However that thread is so old that the suggestions in it no longer work in Ubuntu 10.04 and for whatever reason I can not make a reply to that thread.As in the above thread, I've tried other input devices and rebooting the computer and using other USB ports, and my mouse still intermittently double left clicks randomly at times when I've only clicked the left mouse button once and at times and places when it should only produce a single click such as when selecting a drop down menu.
Has any one else had this problem, and does any one have any idea how to fix it or to trouble shoot this a bit more? Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to further clarify or troubleshoot this issue.
I am arthritic and I have considerable difficulty with a double click. I also have difficulty when using a mouse of moving the mouse as I select something (click the button) from whatever window I am working with and thereby selecting the wrong thing. To compensate for this difficulty, I use a Logitech trackball and program the center button to perform a double click with one stroke. I am currently struggling with Linux Mint 9 in my search for a Windows alternative. Is there any way to program my center button (scroll wheel) to perform a double click in this or any other Linux version? Alternatively, is there any way to program a keyboard key to perform a double mouse click with a single stroke? I do not want any multiple key combinations for this operation, I want something that works with a single click of one button.
Often when I leftclick with the mouse it registres it as a double click.I am running Gnome, and in the mouse center, it does not help to move the slider.I know it is a issue with Xorg og Gnome, since it works fine in Windows (dual boot).Any ideas to what the issue is?--edit--I have the same problem, when I use the scroll button to click on items, in exampleiceweacel to open it in a new tap. It opens two tabs, instead for one!-edit--Damn, it is actually the same issue in Windows. Need a new mouse
When I click once with my bluetooth mouse (Logitech M550b), about one time in three ubuntu receives two clicks.I'm not sure if this is a problem with the mouse or a bug in the OS, but even if it is a problem with the mouse these two clicks arrive at the same time, way too quickly to be a genuine double click.I have searched everywhere (including all the options in gconf-editor) and cannot find where the debounce delay is set for mice. Debounce should ensure that two clicks occurring in rapid succession are interpreted as a single click and thereby solve my problem.
The mouse settings window and gconf-editor both have a setting for 'maximum double click delay', but nothing for 'minimum double click delay' (AKA debounce delay). Does anyone know how I can change the setting so that two simultaneous clicks from the same mouse will be interpreted as a single click?Alternatively, does anyone know of an ubuntu bug which might be causing a single click to be interpreted as two simultaneous clicks? I suspect that the mouse is not the source of problem but have not had a chance to test it on another machine to confirm.I've searched the forum history and found lots of other people having the same problem of phantom double clicks, but nobody has found a solution in any of the previous threads.
I have no idea how, when or why this has suddenly happened but when I double-click in an input box it no longer selects all as it did before. No particular app, this applies to everything with an input/address/search box.
I noticed it wasn't working a couple of days ago in firefox but didn't realise it affected everything til today so I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happened to connect it any particular update or app installed.
I did install gpointing a few days ago but decided I didn't need it and removed it. I don't think I changed any settings but I can't find any settings anywhere for it.
I have a custom LXDE installation with mostly the core applications. (Read my signature for a better picture.) Because it is custom I do not have the option to double click and run a Linux (not Windows) executable file. When I try to open the application it says choose an application to open it with. Do I have to install an application like gdebi (except for Linux executable) to be able to just double click and run it?
In Ubuntu 810.. how do you set the mouse for one click to open an item..?What is that software that sets Trash's empty feature at the bottom of the right click on trash..? I had it, but I can't find it for this new install.Is there a way to default the cursor to half its minimum size, and customize its color to blues..?Is there a way to force the desktop toolbar icons to half of their minimum default size..Is thee a way to change the "Ubuntu Icon + Applications/Place/System" to just three different colored tiny spheres, without the Ubuntu icon..?
I'm running Ubuntu Netbook on my laptop and have tweaked it by removing Window Picker and replacing it with NameBar. The only problem I have is that I can no longer double click the title bar to restore a maximized window. Is there any way to change this?
I used to use ubuntu studio, which when you double clicked on the bar at the top of a window it would slide in under itself. I had to reinstall so I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.10 alt CD, but now double clicking maximizes, how do I change it back.
guys when double-clicking the bar where it is close, maximize and minimize, or maxima and it will not restore I do not know what more I moved here I'm not getting to solve this problem anyone have any idea what can this be?
As far as I know, GNOME can't act like MS or OSX when we wan't to rename a file..you know, when you slightly re click the file name and its ready to be renamed.. instead, I should go right click - context menu - rename to do that.
I could run the script from terminal. My script invokes some installation and works fine.But my wish is that end-user should double click the sh script and it should run.But how? I got few links - but none was of was quite helpful
can i get the ocuurance of left click-right click-double click?i need the time of ocurance and the click(left-right-double) that happend.any software?any clue..i need it in linux environment(kde or gnome)
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...)
There's a physical problem with my Microsoft mouse (and from what I've heard many other Microsoft and Logitech mice) where it accidentally double clicks during what is intended to be one click from me. I was thinking that surely some software that ignores the next click input from the mouse if it is within say 50ms (At a guess) as the last click would solve this problem and increase the longevity of these mice. Is there an option for this somewhere? Perhaps it would be easy to program a simple script or something for this?
