3-button-emulation fails with Fedora 13 on Dell D600
Last modified: 2018-04-11 12:01:28 EDT
Description of problem:
I have been using Fedora 11 (i386) - installed from DVD - on my Dell
cut & paste using 3-button emulation (i.e. pressing both 'mouse' buttons
simultaneously) used to work fine.
Recently a have upgraded to Fedora 13 using the Fedora 12 & Fedora 13 DVDs,
and using System->Administration->Software Update to get available updates.
Three-button emulation no longer works now.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a piece of text under X
2. Activate a window with active text entry, e.g. an
xterm with vi in insert mode.
3. press both 'mouse' buttons simultaneously
selected text is pasted
I'm not sure which component is actually to blame, udev is just a wild guess.
The problem seems to have gone away, although I don't know what triggered
the change in behaviour.
Thank you for letting us know. Feel free to reopen if this happens again.
