Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 832759
losing mouse left click
Last modified: 2012-11-14 10:18:06 EST
Description of problem:
My mouse (external usb) left click stops working after a while - no idea what causes it, hoping you can hope me figure it out
It's probably not a hardware problem cause if I do ctl-alt-bs (restart x windows?) then it works again. (Unfortunately, I've lost all my windows too.)
Is there some way to make some other gesture also work as left click?
I wonder whether that would stop working at the same time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't really know what component to blame. I Hope you can help me on that too.
use the computer for a while
Unplugging and replugging the mouse doesn't help.
I use the external mouse cause the touchpad left click stopped working.
Maybe this has something to do with it? But when I restart X the touchpad
left click still doesn't work and the external mouse left click does.
New evidence - I thought I'd try to map some other key to the left mouse button.
xte 'mouseclick 1'
did not work when my mouse was not working but then I restarted X and it did.
So I now think something is broken in X.
Not long ago I had file system check problems on boot and had to do fsck with a bunch of y's - maybe that has something to do with it. How can I find out which files were repaired?
