When I do a single click, my computer (with
Ubuntu 12.04) acts like it was double click. I think it happens in
~50% of cases.
It happens with all the program I use: browsers, file manager, terminal and so on. I'm not sure when exactly it started, maybe a week ago, and I don't remember if it started to happen after system-update or after the installation of some packages.
What I tried:
None of those helped me. Any ideas?
This bug has disappeared after upgrading to
If you've manually edited
xorg.conf, try adding and entry for your mouse, in case it was somehow deleted:
Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/psaux" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection
EDIT As mention in the comments, this seems to be a reported bug that has stood for some time now. It may be best to add your info to Launchpad to help resolve the bug in the future.
I had the same happen to me for no apparent reason a few days ago on 12.04. I went to nautilus Preferences..Behaviour and it had "Double click" option selected. I then selected single click, checked that was working, then went back and changed to double click again and bingo! Its back in double click mode!
I had the same problem on my laptop running Ubuntu 14.04.
Solution: If you are using a laptop try taking out its battery and then inserting it back.
Explanation: The problem was possibly caused by battery of my laptop. I noticed that though my laptop was fully charged and plugged in, its battery LED was changing color between orange (indicating charging) and yellow (indicating fully charged) continuously. So I removed my battery and inserted back to its slot (didn't switch off my laptop, so everything else remained same). This solved the issue, and since then the touch-pad is working perfectly fine.
