Re: Minor Thunar issue: right-click sometimes opens Create Archive

I was just using right-clicking in Firefox as an example where right-click behavior is always normal, showing that the problem only exists in Thunar. I took your other suggestion and decreased the number of pixels the mouse pointer can move and still be considered a double click. I really don't thin...

Re: Conky background not transparent on first boot/login

I happened to be browsing the board with screen caps of peoples' desktops and saw that most people use the antiX conky, and I decided I liked it better than Elementary as it gives more information about my system so I switched to it and haven't had the problem since. I suspect that I screwed up the ...

Drat, it just did it again so that's not the solution after all. Back to the drawing board...

Re: Minor Thunar issue: right-click sometimes opens Create Archive

I think I may have found the solution: In Thunar's Edit/Preferences/Behavior tab, underneath the "Single click to activate items" radio button there's a slider to "adjust the delay before an item gets selected when the mouse pointer is paused over it." It was set at its default which was almost all ...

Re: Minor Thunar issue: right-click sometimes opens Create Archive

I wonder if anyone's ever filed a bug report with the Thunar/XFCE devs on this, since it isn't just me and you're experiencing the same thing, mg979? That's a feature: One single "right-click" consists of two states: right-click-hold (pressed/clicked) and right-click-release. Both states do have ac...

Re: Minor Thunar issue: right-click sometimes opens Create Archive

I've found that de creasing the mouse's double-click time helps, which to me seems opposite of what I would have expected. With it set to 150ms I no longer had the "right click acts like right-followed-by-immediate-left click" issue at all, but I could also no longer double-click. Guess my fingers a...

Re: Minor Thunar issue: right-click sometimes opens Create Archive

I raised double-click's delay time value to 1200ms, have been very careful not to even touch the left mouse button when right-clicking, but it's still doing the same thing. :( Thinking about it further, I don't believe it's a mouse issue because this behavior only happens in Thunar. Right-clicking o...

Re: Minor Thunar issue: right-click sometimes opens Create Archive

I think it's just a sensitive mouse button, or accidental double-click, because when you open the right-click context menu, the option to create archive is in line with the cursor arrow. So it's easy to accidentally choose that option with the cursor when the context menu opens up right next to you...

Conky background not transparent on first boot/login

I noticed that the first time I log in after a power-up my MX Elementary System Conky has a grey background. I have to toggle it off then back on to restore the transparent background. I was playing with its color settings the other day but if I remember correctly that was to try to make its backgro...
