Fedora 9 Core Single Click acts like Double Click.


I ran all of the Fedora Patches up thru yesterday and since I ran them whenever I single click on anything it interpets it as a double click. Needless to say it makes using the menus in Gnome difficult.

I am using a Microsoft USB Wireless Laser Mouse.

Thanks,

Nope that did not do it. It still acts as if both buttons double click.

Most be something with your mouse. I use single click all the time and never have a problem and that's been with every Fedora from FC5 to F10, no problem with menus.

I experienced the same problem when I upgraded to FC10 from FC8. xev showed two Mouse Press events every time I clicked. My problem was caused by btnx, a program that lets configure your multi-button mouse. After I disabled btnx the problem went away. This is probably caused by some changes in recent kernels in the handling of input event pipes.

Ah, that's interesting. A kernel update was among those updates I installed. But, please pardon me, how do I disable btnx. I did a ps -ef and it was not shown there (also not in the service configuration). Sorry for the noobish question...

I noticed same problem after updating my system and installing a few packages (gcc, gdb, boost, ....).
xenv also shows to MousePress events for a single mouse click.
Any further ideas, what could cause this behaviour?

btnx doesn't show up on a ps, isn't listed in services, and yum doesn't find it if I search for it. How do I disable it? I'll post here if I figure it out, but any help would be greatly appreciated!

More searching yielded this helpful link.

I did the steps listed in section 2, rebooted and it worked. Good luck!
