Now it has happened twice since I installed mint 13 two weeks ago. When it happens, nemo seems to be working alright except that I cannot select any file or folder with mouse click!!

i've switched to gnome3 because of that. but this morning the same problem happened in nautilus! left click has no effect. right click working all right.

problem persists even after switching to KDE!

Seems the mint forum isn't really responsive.

Now I still do not know exactly what problem is, but fortunately I found the solution.

It seems to be a problem with the driver, of either my mouse or my clickpad.

Whenever the mouse click becomes problematic, simply use my touchpad once. A simple touchpad touch or click will make the mouse work properly again! How wierd!

And now there's another problem with fcitx not functioning. Sometimes when I activate fcitx, it pretends to be working but actually is not. Then I tap the touchpad once. After that, it works!
