Description Elijah Newren 2004-02-13 00:26:24 EST
Description of problem: This is *really* odd. When I highlight text in some program and then go to paste into a gnome-termainl via middle click (which is actually a simultaneous left & right click since I'm using Emulate3Buttons in X), I instead get the menu from right-clicking. Once I have done that, the keyboard input for gnome-terminal is locked until I hit the left mouse button at which point the selection is pasted (and if I have "middle" clicked several times in frustration, then suddenly all my pastes appear upon the first time that I left click afterwards). I see this with gnome-terminal. I do not see it with emacs, Mozilla, xterm, or gedit. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.5.1-1 according to 'rpm -q' How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install Fedora 2 Test 1 2. Set Emulate3Buttons to yes 3. Highlight some text in *any* program 4. Middle click to paste into a gnome-terminal Actual results: The menu from right clicking appears instead, although the text has been "sort-of" pasted (meaning that a subsequent left click will cause the text to appear). Expected results: The text pastes upon middle clicking and the right-click-context-menu does not appear. Additional info: I also have Fedora Core 1 installed on the Laptop on a separate partition. I do not see the problem there. It only shows up with gnome-terminal on Fedora 2 Test 1. It's really odd to me too, because I run Gnome built from CVS on two other machines and I haven't seen such a problem. *shrug* Any other information I can help provide for you to track this down?

This is manifested if more than one InputDevice entry pointing to a mouse exists in XF86Config. That was required in Kernel 2.4x to support multiple devices (PS/2, USB and Serial) but now a single entry only is needed. I made the change by deciding to use only '/dev/input/mice' as opposed to '/dev/psaux' in addition and all is well again.

It doesn't happen with Fedora Core 2, so I'm closing.
