left click on kubuntu desktop (on laptop) brings up middle click menu =S

hey guys, strange little problem here but I'm sure there's an easy solution in xorg.conf or the KDE settings - whenever I left click on the desktop on this laptop i get the middle click menu (the menu with the list of windows and unclutter/cascade windows). Does anyone know how to stop this from happening?

Oh, the left click works exactly as normal for everything else, like selecting files, dragging over multiple files, clicking the K menu etc, but seems to only act strange when left clicking the desktop, which seems a little strange.

Ok, well that's it other than that a nice install and my m8 seems happy with his new OS! hehe

Thanks guys,

Mike =)

K - System Settings - Desktop Behaviour - General - Mouse Button Actions
