[Solved] Mouse right click doesn't works

Hello!
The right click on my laptop (Asus UX330C) doesn’t works under Silverblue but works under my installed Fedora 29 version (without any specific setup).
Do you have an idea of what could cause this problem please?

Probably related to the default gesture behavior since Gnome 3.28:

All touchpads now use a gesture for secondary click (the equivalent to right click on a mouse) by default. To use the gesture, keep one finger in contact with the touchpad and tap with another finger. In many cases this replaces tapping areas of the touchpad as the default secondary click method. A choice between the two behaviors is available in the Tweaks application.

Thanks @basvdlei !
On my laptop the gesture is a little bit different, but I’ve found it, it’s a tap with 2 fingers.

simple need enable Areas!

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method ‘areas’

You need to change the touchpad clickarea method.

This can be done via gnome-tweaks, or on command line first type

gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad

to see all options. To see current click setting type:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method

To see options, type:

gsettings range org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method

To change to right click method, type:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method ‘areas’
