I’ve just installed MATE and in the first minute (literally) of use, I ran into this annoyance.
I know how open source works, but I can’t understand how this usability issue still exists after 20+ years of Linux desktop environment. Beats me.
And no, Alt+RMB doesn’t work on a touchpad, and the trackpoint on my Lenovo X1C 6th gen doesn’t work either.
And yes, along with the lack of well-integrated support for switching among windows with Super+0…9 number keys, this is driving me away from MATE.
Oh, and display tearing on a top-of-the-line ~laptop out of the box? “~” because I’ve installed MATE from an Ubuntu Budgie live USB and the bundled Chromium is at v67 (why, Budgie?) but still, not really acceptable.
I like the idea of retro/slim/fast DEs, but I need the features above to be functional before I return to MATE.
