Ubuntu – right click menu on mouse release (windows behavior)


I'm trying to change the behavior of the right click menu in ubuntu 10.10 because I use Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

When you right click you need to hold the right click and select something.

In Windows the is different
right click (release)
select something with left click

Is there a way to change this in ubuntu?

I'm running the ubuntu in vmware 7

Is that behavior normal?

This is not the normal behaviour in Ubuntu. The normal behaviour is the same as you described for Windows.

As far as I know, there is no way to change this right click behaviour.

It might be a problem with running Ubuntu in vmware, although I can't think how this would make a difference. You could try dual booting or using a different virtualisation solution such as virtualbox.

Was it like this when you first installed Ubuntu? Also, are you running Ubuntu or Kubuntu? (You tagged your question with KDE, which is only installed by default in Kubuntu).
