The doubleclick time in Java applications should be read from GTK or KDE settings, but aren't.
I had this problem since I use Gnome 2.10.2 on Debian. Sun has a bugreport on this.
The solution is to add the following to ~/.Xdefaults:
xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults
to merge the newly created settings into the running X server. Settings will apply at next Java app. startup.
You can replace 500 with a number in milliseconds that you wish to set the doubleclick time(out) to.
The standard behaviour in Firefox, in Linux, for a middle mouse click is to "paste and go/google i'm feeling lucky".
This default behaviour combined with the X server's auto-copy feature makes a middle mouse click much unpredictable.
To disable this quite useless behaviour, simply open a firefox browser and type:
in the locationbar and press enter.
You will see a list of settings, and you'll need to create a new one yourself by right clicking and choosing New -> Boolean, and enter the preferences name:
This value should be set to "false".
Firefox must be restarted before the change takes effect.
How do I get my scrollwheel to work in Firefox/Mozilla in Xorg on Linux?
– Log on as root
– Edit file
/etc/X11/xorg.conf with your favorite editor:
The MS Explorer 3.0 really has 7 buttons: left, right, middle, scroll up, scroll down and 2 thumb buttons, which X needs to know.
My section looks like this, which should work for you as well.
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Please note that certain options might vary from distro to distro, such as the
I use both Debian (unstable) and Ubuntu (5.10), on which this sections work perfectly.
