Lightbulb mouse pinter option to snap to default button as in windows xp.


Hi,

In windows xp we have a mouse pointer option where in we can choose to snap to default button. So this reduces the stress on the wrist by reducing amount of the mouse movement requirement. Is there any similar option in rhel 5.4. I searched on different options in menu and also in google search. If somebody could show me the way, it will be great.

Depends on your desktop environment...are you using Gnome, KDE, or something else? And what version of your window manager? Have you contacted RHEL support?

I am using KDE (DESKTOP_SESSION=kde-plasma).

Is there a fix for this issue? How do we make the mouse snap to the default pop-up window button?
It seems many people are asking for this, there is lack of credible answers, and no patch for this in many years!!
