Hola, realmente no creo que te puedan ayudar si escribes en español. Trata de traducirlo a ingles – César Jan 5 '12 at 3:30

Aunque esto no resolvera tu problema del click automatico, la verdad es que el link al que apuntas es para un usuario con la version 10.10 de Ubuntu. En tu caso tienes las 11.10 la cual ya no ofrece esa opcion por motivos de actualizaciones y mejoras ya existentes. Seria interesante saber si has actualizado de una version previa o has instalado la version 11.10 desde cero.

Hi Antoni. Although this will not solve your automatic clicking problem, the truth is that the link you just pointed out is for a user that is using the 10.10 version of Ubuntu. In your case you are using the 11.10. This version does not have the option you are looking for because of updates and enhancements made to Ubuntu. It would be interesting to know if you have upgraded from a previous version of have installed 11.10 from scratch.

Buenas. La solución está aquí: Mouse clicks after movement

Aplicaciones-> Herramientas del sistema-> Configuración del sistema-> Acceso universal-> (4ª pestaña) Apuntar y pulsar-> Pulsar al enfocar.
