I am having too many artifacts when doing right click (second click) of mouse with the touchpad of UX303UA in Debian 8.5, which is problematic in inspection etc with Mathematica. Goal to fix: Default Shift+fn+f10 to bring the mouse second click does not work in my hardware (don_crissti)

Characteristics of the system

  • Inspecting the keystroke Shift+fn+f10 with xev

    KeyPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x2200001,
        root 0x19a, subw 0x0, time 60929622, (375,-9), root:(476,157),
        state 0x0, keycode 50 (keysym 0xffe1, Shift_L), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
        XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
        XFilterEvent returns: False

        XFilterEvent returns: False
    
  • Settings > Mouse & Touchpad does not have anything relevant about fn keys.

Fig. 1 Pressing literally fn+F10 opens a tab in Google Chrome/Matlab/...; while pressing fn+shift+F10 does nothing

    Shift+F10 is the standard shortcut in gnome to bring up the context menu. – don_crissti Sep 28 '16 at 8:34

    I don't get your comment... It does exactly what you request - it emulates a right-click with the mouse which brings up the context menu for the selected item. – don_crissti Sep 28 '16 at 8:41
  • @don_crissti OK, this seems to be a fault in my hardware. Please, see the body. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Oct 3 '16 at 5:21

If you can't find anything amongst the accessibility features of your desktop environment, you can still bind xdotool calls to hotkeys. You'll find some inspiration at http://tuxradar.com/content/xdotool-script-your-mouse.

No supported solution in Gnome 3.14 of Debian 8.5. Let's hope the next release of Gnome at Q1-Q2 2017 will target the feature.
