Double click does not open documents

Postby robinast on Sat Nov 16, 2013 3:37 am

I'm using Linux Mint 15 Olivia
I've got a strange (and very boring!) problem recently: I can not open any documents using a mouse (neither double-clicking nor using the drop-down menu under right mouse button; nevertheless, no problem with opening folders both way or starting programs ). Thus, to open a file, I have to start a corresponding program at first and then open the desired document via its interface. What could cause this and how to resolve? I suspect that the problem started because of my cat walking over the keyboard - at least I noticed the problem shortly after that

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try a different keyboard.

What desktop environment are you using? There's gotta be a setting somewhere that handles that sort of thing. I'm of course saying that assuming you rebooted &c. :)
