View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mouse madness

Hi all,

I seem to be having an issue thats really odd and has been happening for some time. I was wondering if anyone here has had this one before.

when I click a window to drag it, its as if the "double click when mouse is held down" option is still on. it stops the click and re-initiates it?

actually this happens not just when I drag a window, but when im highlighting text etc etc.. its really annoying

This may sound obvious but have you tried the mouse preferences? You'll find them in System -> Preferences -> Mouse and at the bottom you have the "Double-Click Timeout" slider that you can change, as well as a test area to check that the double-click speed is OK.
