Mouse not clicking well

Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:21 pm

I didn't see anything on the troubleshooting section.

I have to click several times to get something to open in X windows. Some times it's hit or miss.
Some times I can click it and other times it seems like I need to click it just right.

Ideas?

Go on tell us what it was, there could be others with the same problem.

It's right in the RPI troubleshooting guide.

Found an external hub that provides max of 500mAh to the port.

I'm still convinced not having a GPU driver makes the mouse run a little less effective, but we will see what happens when the GPU driver is developed.

Three years ago and "Never mind I have it solved."
I have the problem that the mouse click time can not be changed.
I do not think it is a power supply problem.

The mouse click must be fast or no effect.
If I use Menu, Preferences, Windows Settings, Mouse, Double click time,
it has no effect.

Openbox Configuration Manage comes preinstalled and I did try to install it again.

I am using a pi 2 with raspbrian.

Never mind I found the answer.

Should I leave it at that? but just is case another has this problem:

viewtopic.php?f=63&t=48814
sudo nano ~/.gtkrc-2.0
gtk-double-click-time=1000

I assume the 1000 can be adjusted as you like.
