    Default Mouse: Left click + right click = middle click

    Hey guys, I noticed when I press both left and right mouse button it gets interpreted as middle click. Any chance I can disable this and where?

    And another question since I created this thread: it seems that Linux resets a "xset m 0 5" command after every reboot. How can I make this permanent?

    Hope you can help me with these questions.

    Thank you

    YAST / Hardware / Mouse Model -> Activate 3-Button Emulation enables / disables this functionality.

    Requires an X restart.

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    Both enabled and disabled a simultaneous left/right-click forces a middle click. I assume anyway that if it's unchecked it should be disabled and that's what it already was - yet I tried both settings.

    Besides I'm not sure how to restart X - if its sax2 -r then I did it. I also did a restart (I think that should restart X too) which didn't help.

    The mouse is a Razer DeathAdder btw if that is of any importance.

    Regards

    Was it disabled when you first started the program?

    Restarting X simply means "logging out and in".

    Thanks for the hint how a restart is done

    Edit: After another activate/deactivate it worked. Thanks!

    You happen to know the solution to my 2nd problem as well? I prefer xset m 0 5 - but that doesn't get stored. After a reboot I've to do it again.

    A 'quick' hackish way would be to make a file in /home/user/.kde/Autostart/ the name of the file can be anything, the contents would be:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    xset m 0 5
    You'll need to make it executable so chmod 755 filename would take care of that.

    It would execute it everytime you login to KDE3, for KDE4 it would be /home/user/.kde4/Autostart/

    I'm sure there's a nicer way to do it but that's the first thing that came to mind.

    Sorry to bother you guys but the 3 button emulation is still active and I can't work it out to disable it. It worked once I reckon but after a reboot it was enabled again.

    I was wondering if I maybe could change the setting manually in a config (XF86config contains some mouse stuff I figured out). Unfortunately I dont have a 2nd mouse to test whether it's because of my mouse or a software problem.

    Long story short:
    - "Activate 3-Button Emulation" is UNchecked
    - When pressing Left and Right click together on the test frame it highlights the middle mouse button.

    Could you post your entire /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a pastebin site - such as general pastebin - simplified internet collaboration or just copy paste it here.
