How to Fix Right Click Issue of Mouse & Touchpad on Ubuntu.

As a content creator, I have to use almost all Operating Systems for testing, and I don’t use those VM. Because I know that VM ‘s never give you the perfect results. So I have a dedicated PC (Laptop) which is Ryzen 5 2500U with 8Gigs of RAM and 120SSD, a pretty solid machine for running any Linux Distros.

So I was testing the Ubuntu 19.10 but literally, I found a serious issue with the Vega 8 IGPU, yes I had no time to deal with it so I decided to test it later and I installed Ubuntu 18.04.4.

Everything was running fine but then I noticed that Right-click on the mouse was not working,

I don’t use Ubuntu much so didn’t aware of this pretty common reason.

So first I checked the Synaptics mouse Drivers and it was fine and even I reinstalled. But the problem was not solved yet. So I decided to dig in a Ubuntu forum and found it easy to fix.

So if you also facing this issue just follow the steps and it will fix your issues in less than a minute.

first, you need to install the Gnome-tweaks from the Ubuntu App center or you can do that using terminal by the following command

sudo apt install gnome-tweaks

And all done. Now you can test it and I’m 100% sure that right-click will work now.

And if it’s still not working just reboot the PC and retry. (all says reboot doesn’t make sense but yes it makes sense).
