How can I generate the middle click as the touchpad has an associated button with two options left and right for clicks. In windows that is solved easily: two finger tap means middle click. How can I find a work-around for Linux?
I have installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 on my new Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 M772DGE.
Unfortunately the right mouse button is not working correctly. Every mouse button click is interpreted as a left mouse button click.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall the synaptics (xserver-xorg-input-synaptics) drivers, but the problem is still present.
I would like to map "Back" button (xev shows it as "button 7") of my mouse (A4Tech X-7) to act as a middle mouse button. Is there a way to do this? I'm lost in google, finding only how to map buttons to keyboard shortcuts with xbindkeys and etc.
So I'm on my Acer Aspire One, and in the last few versions of Ubuntu, on the track pad, I could tap the bottom right corner for right click, and upper right corner for middle click. But with 9.10 the middle click tapping no longer works. How fix?
After some upgrade (probably sometime in july) the middle mouse button suddenly stopped to copy to clipboard / paste - which is something I am use to for ... well, too many years and really buggs me.
System is kubuntu, 14.04 - upgraded over the years initially from 12.04 (I think).
I found some suggestions on the net, tried nearly all, but non had any effect.
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.
