Menu bar single click - click and hold

Postby Penn » Tue Jan 31, 2017 11:50 pm

Due to a hard drive issue I had to start fresh with LMDE2 right about the time the new ISO came out (I think that was a new ISO). This may have existed before then but I am getting annoyed with it now that I've been noticing lately but it might be something new.

When I click once with either touchpad or mouse on the menu bar I get locked on to drag the window to a new location but only on some apps such, mainly all the mint and xapps as wekk as terminal. When all I am trying to do is put the focus on that window that behavior is annoying.

I have searched for an answer but maybe my search terms are wrong. How to I make this behavior go away?

It's a bug in GTK+ 3.14 (so it affects only GTK+3 apps). So far, I couldn't find a solution.

I've never been able to find a solution for this either. The one piece of good news is that the bug only seems to exist in gtk3.14. I haven't encountered it in any other version.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.
