Right mouse click desktop doesn't work

I am using Pinguy 11.04. All was well until I started installing stuff. Now for some reason I can't right mouse click the desktop. Works in other apps but when I RMC on the desktop, nothing. Is this some kind of setting I may have set? What should I do?

it worked at first, so the problem should be about installing programs...
what programs did you install? anything mouse-related? didn't you happen to change somefiles for X and mouse or use command "synclient"?
of course, i haven't seen pinguy distro yet and i am just giving you guide to give some more information, and help if i could.
