Version 18.04.3 right mouse key stopped working, I attempted to try and make the right key the primary key settings, devices. Now neither key works, if I left click on an icon in the favorites column a box appears with : new window, open a new window, remove from favorites and show details.

So currently there is no way to use the mouse. However if I left click on the desk top I can get to the terminal.

My question is:
Is there a way from the terminal to reset the the mouse settings to their original state?

  • Start xev and tell us what happens when you click on it with either button. How did you change the settings (screen capture with the current settings would help). – Eduardo Trápani Oct 19 '19 at 16:00

This is not a solution but a workaround.

Before doing this, save all your work.

Open the System Monitor and end the process Xorg.
