    Question Lemur Touchpad Quirks

    Anyone had problems with left mouse button failing to work when using Firefox and/or Chrome? This occurs frequently on Youtube where it is often difficult to change the volume or pause a video. It also becomes impossible to scroll forward or back through similar videos after the one you were watching finished playing. If I keep at it enough times it will eventually work, but it can take 10 or more attempts. The problem occurs whether using the "button" in lower left corner of touchpad or tapping center of pad. The behavior occurs on other websites too, where it requires repeated attempts to follow a link. I've searched Ubuntu and System76 forums but have not seen mention of this issue.

    Does it happen if you turn of desktop effects (System > Prefs > Appearance > Visual Effects > None)?
    To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.

    Problem solved, thanks. What's lost by turning off the effects?

    Just some little flashy effects. It's a bug in compiz that has a negative effect on Flash. You can disable effects when watching flash videos and re-enable them if you want when you're done.

    Most likely, a fix for this will come down the pike via an update at some point. Hopefully soon.
