I have unchecked all the dwell click options in gconf (configuration editor) but still auto click is enabled, teasing me. In Ubuntu 12.04, mouse setting option under 'All Settings' doesn't provide any option to cause auto click disabled. How to get out of here?

One way I came across in the ubuntuforums was...mousetweaks -s. It worked for me, try it!

From the terminal do sudo apt-get install mousetweaks to install mousetweaks or use the software center.
