How do I set my mouse to single click mode?
I recently installed Spring 2009 in a new-to-me Gateway M3018 laptop, and I have a couple of mouse questions:
I should note I am NOT using the onboard finger-pointing device on the keyboard for most occasions, but I do want to be able to use it while in my car or something. But if I am using it on a table-top, I use a mini USB two-finger scrolling mouse, and that is where I am having the problem.
The computer configuration screen only shows the keyboard touch pad for a mouse. I can't figure out where to go on the menu to change the USB mouse to single-click.
Also, I MUST be able to disable the touch pad while using the other mouse. On my old Dell Latitude CPiA, I used a PS/2 mouse, and when I plugged that in and booted the computer, it disabled the touchpad. My biggest problem is that even when I use a USB mouse, if I get my finger anywhere near the touch pad, the cursor moves to wherever I indicated on the touch pad, and this is EXTREMELY ANNOYING! GRRRrrrrrrrrr.....
I'm running KDE 4.2. It wants to upgrade to 4.24, and refuses to do so because of a dependency problem of some sort. I also want to run Opera instead of Mozilla, and it won't load that because of a ppp problem. Any suggestions on those?
