I am using a USB mouse on an Asus A52F. When I right click on
one of the icons on the top or left on the screen, I get the same
behavior as from a left click. I think the touchpad is the same,
but I rarely use a touchpad so I'm not sure I checked correctly.
Things are a little crazy. This is a laptop I set up for my dad, and
everything was fine using ubuntu 10.something.
When I tap the right side of my touchpad, it right clicks. This feature is driving me insane and I want to get rid of it, how Do I do that.
To clarify, I do not want the entire tap to click gone, but I want it to only left click on tap, and use button for right clicking.
I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and I noticed that my right ¨touchpad click¨ isn´t working at all. My touchpad is working fine 2 finger scrolling also works but right click doesn´t work. The tochpad worked fine under windows 7. The touchpad has a physical click, but I dont now if it knows the difference between left and right click.Is there some kind of solution for this problem?
I recently installed Fedora 13 on my hp 6730b laptop alongside Windows 7 on an extended partition. Everything's working fine but I can't click using the synaptic touchpad. The cursor is moving around fine using the touchpad but to click I need to use the left button.
Just bought an Acer AO756 laptop and I am dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 and Win 7. The only problem that I am having with the laptop is right click. There aren't any right and left click buttons, you click by pressing the touchpad on the right or left corner and the entire touchpad moves.
I can tap to left click and two finger tap to right click but that doesn't work very well.
I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop Dell Inspiron 1520. After installation, touchpad was detected but Vertical & Horizontal scrolling and Left & Right click were not working. So I tweaked the synclient configuration using the command
and figured out that scroll functionality was disabled, so enabled it.
