Linux -disable Alt-Left Mouse button

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it effects other distros, but there is an annoying default behavior when you ALT-Left Mouse button click in Ubuntu. It moves the entire application Window.

This is a common question but no universal solution it seems

I've tried the most common solution, modifying the Mouse setting in dconf Editor,

org>GNOME>desktop>wm>preferences
but afaik IT DOES NOT WORK
in Ubuntu mate 16.04.

Anyone else have a solution that would work or I can at least try?

You might have to start a new session for the change to work. If that doesn't work you can switch to another desktop environment until they fix the bug (assuming it's a bug). You're changing mouse-button-modifier property, right?

ok thanks. Think i figured it out.

Pretty sure I was changing in the wrong place

 

Need to go

org → mate → Marco → general → mouse-button-modifier
