Simply: No, unless you change the alignment of your screens (System settings > "screens", drag the left screen up), but then you would have the same problem at the bottom.

Your going to want to write something like this #!/bin/bash xdotool mousedown 2; ...

My solution was to remove the mouse from the list of paired bluetooth devices (Dash → Bluetooth), switch off the mouse and re-pair it after a reboot.

Ctrl+Alt+F2 Ctrl+Alt+F7 I always get this bug when dragging an image with Eye of Mate image viewer, and a TTY switch makes it go away. Restarting also works, but changing the cursor in the appearance settings does not.

Running the configuration software in Wine doesn't help, because it expects the Windows hardware drivers to be present. You will need to find working Linux drivers for your device. Generally speaking, anything that involves direct hardware or driver access doesn't work in Wine.
