Debian unstable

Postby eumesm0 » 2018-08-31 11:56

Hello all.

I did a clean install of Debian, however the right click does not work on the desktop and tray. Anywhere else works. And it does not matter if it's touchpad or mouse. What can it be?

Ghosts and goblins.
Would help if you stated which desktop environment you are using, along with which laptop and hardware.

This is Debian unstable. That's kind of like that. Unstable is subject to massive changes and in-place library updates. This can result in a very "unstable" system which contains packages that cannot be installed due to missing libraries, dependencies that cannot be fulfilled etc. Use it at your own risk! If you want stability, use stable. And even better, let Debian devs know about the problem. The most important thing is to keep in mind that you are participating in the development of Debian when you are tracking unstable. This means that you should know your way around Linux, Debian and the Debian packaging system and that you should have an interest in tracking down and fixing bugs. Simply fill out the bug report.

eumesm0, if you are running Unstable you should not have to ask for help. You would probably find it easier to install Debian Stable (Stretch) or another distribution that is more user friendly.
