Thread: Random doubleclicks KDE

  1. #1

    Default Random doubleclicks KDE

    I do have the problem on three devices, that the mouse clicks are not working properly anymore. Instead of a single click, double clicks are executed. Is this a big or a feature? Produce a lot of hassle.

    Maybe the problem is caused by the worn micro switch in the mouse. I ran into this situation many times before after a mouse had been serving for a long time. Have you checked with another mouse?

    Of the dozen or so mouses I used in the last decade at least 10 were retired because of this.

    Did this just start after previously executing only single clicks?
    You might also check Settings/Input Devices/Mouse and make sure it's not set to single-click to open files and folders. Just in case.

    I have run into that doubleclick problem.

    Replacing the mouse fixed it.

    Good acting.

    I had "fix"ed twice on a mouse with this problem by cleaning the reed of the micro switch. It's just too tedious.

    Rebooting into Ubuntu and Windows fixes the Problem. So I see this as a OpenSuse issue, as it exists with 3 Computers.

    Then, MAYBE you could play with the "Double click interval" time to see if it helps.

    Supposedly you're with KDE Plasma, the "Double click interval" lies in "System Settings" --> "Input Devices" --> "Mouse" --> "Advanced". See also here for a screenshot: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=122085

    Other than that, I am sorry but I could not be helpful any more. Good luck with other's advice.

    Is it a wireless mouse?

    I have had problems like that come and go on more than one wireless mouse, usually some signal interference from some external source.

    In the offices of a few of my customers years ago, I found that a passing car would cause random clicks (took a while at first to relate it to cars going by in the street outside, but once I noticed the relationship, it was easy to confirm).
