Lost 2-button middle click function on Dell Inspiron 15z
Sorry for the inability to present this in a better fashion. I have no access to any of the format options, for some reason... I there seems to be no way to use paragraphs as well as other limitations. Why??... I lost the abiiltiy to past highlighted text, as well as open links with the 2-button middle click. I was in Firefox > about:config, going into the search bar, when something seemed to grab the pointer. The loss of the 2-button middle click, followed 224 updates, to complete the installation of LM15. Early on, I saw a reference to this problem as due to Vim, but it was from a couple of years ago. In Firefox, about:config: Code: Select all middlemouse.contentLoadURL = True middlemouse.paste = True From the terminal: Code: Select all $ gnome-settings-daemon ** (gnome-settings-daemon:14818): WARNING **: You can only run one xsettings manager at a time; exiting ** (gnome-settings-daemon:14818): WARNING **: Unable to start xsettings manager: Could not initialize xsettings manager. ** (gnome-settings-daemon:14818): WARNING **: Name taken or bus went away - shutting down Code: Select all $ synclient -l Parameter settings: LeftEdge = 1766 RightEdge = 5382 TopEdge = 1642 BottomEdge = 4528 FingerLow = 25 FingerHigh = 30 FingerPress = 256 MaxTapTime = 180 MaxTapMove = 236 MaxDoubleTapTime = 180 SingleTapTimeout = 180 In System Settings: The box is checked to Emulate middle click by clicking both left and right buttons. Touch pad is Enabled. Disable touchpad while typing is checked. Enable mouseclicks with touchpad is enabled. Right-click > Open Link in New Tab still works. Touchpad Srolling still works, horizontal and vertical. $ gpointing-device-settings Opened the configuration GUI, but an X error occurred: BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter). This command, in terminal, removed touchpad control of the pointer. I had to shut down via terminal and reboot. Code: Select all $ sudo rmmod psmouse I have never had the ability to highlight text in GEDIT, and middle-click to paste elsewhere in GEDIT. From GEDIT to other applications worked fine, and from other applications to GEDIT. Just not within GEDIT. Is this an easy fix? Will the problem recur? ?
