Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Since the update from 10.10 to 11.10, my mouse-buttons sometimes exchange. Happens for example once waking up from suspend-to-ram. Now when clicking a link with the left button it’ll open a popup-menu, so I have to use the right mouse button instead. It doesn't matter if using the internal laptop-buttons or an external usb mouse.

Any thoughts on why this happens and how to get rid of it?

I think the description is clear enough (unless someone explicitly asks for more information). I don't have a clue what actually causes this, so I've no idea what's wrong. Seems to be a (rather rare) bug. –  rumpel Apr 6 '12 at 7:27
If it still occurs after regular updates I would report it as a bug. –  Mark Rooney Apr 6 '12 at 9:12
