Re: How to adjust the mouse behavior?

Description of the behaviour makes the problem appear to be a bad contact within the mouse itself. Is it always the same mouse button? A fault like this will not
be fixed by adjustments to the computer software.

Re: Daily use of MX Linux (and Antix if you use it as well)
