I just installed Ubuntu-Mate 16.04 LTS on my new Lenovo T460 laptop and I’m having trouble with the behavior of the left mouse button.
Basically, on a regular basis, when I click on something, the click won’t release. So, the following sequence happens frequently:
- click on a window to bring focus to that window. (push left mouse button and release)
- move mouse down with the intention to click within that window
- window gets dragged down.
- Repeated clicking is required to “release” the click.
Concerning the install, I thought I installed everything with defaults. The only slightly atypical situation is that I disabled the touchpad in the bios. Somehow ubuntu found the touchpad and it’s active at the login screen. However, I then disable it during my MATE session - so presumably it’s not active anymore during a session.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as this has made using my new laptop frustrating in the extreme. Software/hardware problem?
