i am using i3 on ArchLinux and from time to time, I can not reproduce what causes this, the Xserver is not processing the click events of my mouse. Apparently, the mouse events are correctly processed by the kernel and libinput as libinput debug-events shows this:

-event4   POINTER_BUTTON          +2.116s   BTN_LEFT (272) pressed, seat count: 1
 event4   POINTER_BUTTON          +2.212s   BTN_LEFT (272) released, seat count: 0
 event4   POINTER_BUTTON          +2.268s   BTN_LEFT (272) pressed, seat count: 1
 event4   POINTER_BUTTON          +2.356s   BTN_LEFT (272) released, seat count: 0

But nothing is happening inside xev.

However, the mouse movement event seem to be processed correctly as I can move it on the screen.

Thanks!

    So program is likely grabing button events. See this answer for how to figure out which process is responsible Aug 1, 2022 at 23:51
