This is kind of driving me crazy. I don’t mind having a middle mouse button, and while other people might disagree, to me it seems so wrong to have a middle touchpad “button”. Especially when 1) it’s super easy to accidentally “push” it, and 2) it does all sorts of destructive things like closing tabs in Firefox.
I’ve disabled the “middle click paste” in the gnome tweak tool, but that doesn’t seem to have fixed anything. The terminal still gets middle touchpad clicks, Firefox still gets middle touchpad clicks (and I’ve accidentally closed my gmail tab 3 times this morning), and when I check
libinput debug-events, I’m still seeing
How do I just comprehensively kill this thing dead? Do I have to recompile libinput? How is this supposed to work?
