    Mouse problem after Hardy upgrade: only double clicks

    After upgrading from 7.10 to Hardy Heron all clicks with my mouse (USB Logitech MX700) are regarded as double clicks. Moreover, left-clicking on the icons in the menu panel has no effect anymore.

    This is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:


    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Dev Name" "Logitech, Inc. MX-700 Cordless Mouse Receiver"
    # Option "CorePointer"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 "
    Option "Resolution" "800"
    Option "Buttons" "10"
    EndSection

    For the record, I fixed this by removing the hash before Option "CorePointer" ...

    Re: Mouse problem after Hardy upgrade: only double clicks

    On Kubuntu Hardy KDE 3 x64, I experience this double click issue intermittently: sometimes my mouse clicks are interpreted as double clicks.

    As you can see, the "CorePointer" option is uncommented in my xorg.conf file.

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    EndSection

    Is anyone experiencing this problem? Has anyone found a different solution that works?

    Cool Re: Mouse problem after Hardy upgrade: only double clicks

    I'm having the same problems, and have not been able to solve them yet.

    Tried the above, and this:

    But no improvement yet.

    Has anyone managed to fix this another way?

    Suggestions are welcome.

    Try this:

    Code:
    # Mouse fix as per bug 196711
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"CorePointer"
    	Driver		"mouse"
    EndSection
    Let me know if this works for you.
