Hi,

The latest updates seem to have broken the clicking on my trackpad (or rather, the clicky-thing below the trackpad). If I use two fingers to 'click' on the trackpad, it still works, but then I have to use enter to choose an option.

I thought this might be a hardware option as my computer is quite old, but I have the same problem using a USB mouse: the cursor moves with the mouse, but left-clicks don't register.

Any tips on how to fix this?

[Edit: a single click on the trackpad now seems to be working as a left-click, although the 'clicky-bit' under the trackpad still isn't working. This only works occasionally - now and then it stops working, and sometimes the trackpad also goes wonky and responds poorly. While I can work around this a bit, I'd really like to get the clicky-bit or a mouse working. ]

Okay, the one-finger-click-on-trackpad-for-left-click option now seems to stop working whenever I suspend the computer, and the trackpad works for a while and then gets 'sticky'. Help?
