Hello friends, I have a somewhat strange problem in Fedora 36, what happens is that when I click, the click remains as if I pressed it for a long time (although I did not press it for more than an instant), what I mean is that if I click on the terminal icon, for example, instead of opening the terminal the icon stays pressed as if I were going to move it, or when I click on a page the text is selected, or if I want to change tab in the browser, if I click on the window the same thing happens and it gets “stuck” and moves or a new window is made. Sometimes the click does not work well, or is highlighted or does not work at all
I’m sorry it’s hard to explain because it’s very rare.
Previously I had a Fedora 28 and this never happened to me, I also use Windows 10 and this does not happen there, I wanted to know if it is a problem with Fedora 36 and how to solve it
In order to get some more info, can you open a terminal and run sudo libinput debug-events and then click your mouse and paste here what the output is? If the mouse is working correctly, you should see something like this:
When you say the mouse works as expected with Windows, is that the same mouse on the same computer (dual boot, Fedora and Windows)? If not I’d suggest checking a different mouse on your Fedora system, as the mechanical actions of mouse clicking are often affected by dust and grit getting into the mouse microswitch area.
But if the mouse never shows a problem in Windows and does more frequently with Fedora, then you’ll have to continue to work to reproduce the problem as Scott suggests.
