'click' --> 'double-click' & 'hover' --> 'click'

Post by markfilipak » Mon May 28, 2018 3:21 pm

Hi All!

Is there a generic, global setting that will turn what now requires 'click' into requiring 'double-click' and what now requires 'hover' into requiring 'click'?

...I have tried to find such a setting for months, ...years. Individual apps often have no such individual settings.

Thanks!

PS: Is there a focus-stealing prevention setting or utility that actually works?

I've never seen a truly "global" setting, but I believe there are settings unique to each desktop environment. I run KDE and there is a simple setting in the "System Settings" applet.

What DE are you running?

Edit: Sorry, I see this is posted in the Cinnamon forum.

I believe the setting can be found in the "system settings" for Cinnamon. I don't remember the exact wording and I no longer have a Cinnamon machine to look it up.

Well, I believe I'll have a drink...

I've never seen such settings.

No cigar for you.
