I can't have middle click closing apps when I accidentally tap it. Best solution I've found is to disable middle click entirely. I'd rather not have a big deadspot in the middle of trackpad.

I'd rather expand my trackpad so that middle click is treated as a left click. I also want left click to continue to be a left click. How can I do this?

I tried:

me@pc:~/grive$ xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 1 3" Warning: Only changing the first 3 of 10 buttons. X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 116 (X_SetPointerMapping) Value in failed request: 0x1 Serial number of failed request: 9 Current serial number in output stream: 9

P.S. (I don't know if Im on Loki or how to tell. I just downloaded elementary OS and installed it the weekend of 5/12/2017)

  • This is one of the major pain points I have so far. Hopefully somebody will have an answer.
