I am recently retired, so I have spent a LOT more time than usual at the computer,
which has seriously increased the number of posts I make here ;-)
Latest problem: I am not sure when this started, but my middle mouse button doesn't work.
The same classic problems mentioned in other posts: not opening firefox links in a new tab,
and worse (far worse!) not pasting selected text.
I searched the forum and found http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,92562.0.html
which in turn contained a suggestion to readhttp://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,92348.msg774576.html#msg774576
That post suggested:
Delete the 11-mouse.conf in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folder.
But.... I have no such file! [root@localhost xorg.conf.d]# pwd
[root@localhost xorg.conf.d]# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 11 10:49 ./
drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 4096 Dec 2 13:12 ../
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1099 Sep 23 2011 10-evdev.conf

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 744 Mar 27 2012 50-wacom.conf
So, what do I do next?
It occurred to me that perhaps the button's definition was changed somewhere, possibly
even by myself somehow, but I have no idea how I could ask what the button definition
currently is. Would that be a good place to start?
Any help appreciated! :-)
