    Mouse right click too sensitive.

    When I right click the mouse it automatically creates a new folder on the desktop. Then when I try to delete it, it automatically opens it. I close it and try again to delete and am caught in a cycle of either creating new folders or opening new folders I don't want.

    Where and how do I change this behaviour ?

    I have been there and tweaked, but to be honest don't know which setting will alter this behaviour.

    Re: Mouse right click too sensitive.

    Open a terminal (Alt+F2 -> gnome-terminal) and run
    Code:
    xev
    Move the mouse pointer inside the white window that appeared. You'll see alot of MotionNotify events scroll by in the terminal. Hold it steady and click the right mouse button, then move it out of the window and click the X to close the window. What events were created by the mouse-click (in between those MotionNotify events)?

    I got these registered
    Code:
    ConfigureNotify event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x5a00001,
        event 0x5a00001, window 0x5a00001, (500,55), width 178, height 178,
        border_width 2, above 0x207c513, override NO
    
    ButtonPress event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x5a00001,
        root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 220262440, (104,76), root:(606,133),
        state 0x10, button 3, same_screen YES
    
    ConfigureNotify event, serial 28, synthetic YES, window 0x5a00001,
        event 0x5a00001, window 0x5a00001, (500,55), width 178, height 178,
        border_width 2, above 0x34055bf, override NO
    
    ButtonRelease event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x5a00001,
        root 0x63, subw 0x0, time 220262545, (104,76), root:(606,133),
        state 0x410, button 3, same_screen YES

    Now thats a worry, nothing happened.

    While moving the pointer into the square the pointer changed as it does on boxes, to re-size, but once inside, nothing, nothing at all.

    For information its an Optical mouse from Saltek

    Do you have another computer and/or OS you can try that mouse on? It may be a driver issue and it may be a hardware issue...

    I am dual booting XP and Ubuntu, but no other PC available.
    Should I try to replicate the problem in XP ?

    If it works normally in Windows, then it must be a driver issue. In that case you should report the bug on launchpad. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server
