Mouse Single Click Option?


I installed "Mandriva 2008 one-kde" and I cant find the config kde/desktop/periph...(or more likely I've forgotten) to change my mouse from double click to single.

If someone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

You're welcome mate. I am also a big fan of single-click desktop (although, I am a Gnome-user). It just makes more sense, since taskbar items are usually single-click. It also saves time and avoids the possibility of "not clicking twice fast enough". It may also make my mouse last longer

Cheers mate!
