    Hi,

    I am using my Macbook air to connect to a Linux work machine via NoMachine.

    The left and right mouse clicks function ok. I am using a webpage where ctrl + LeftClick and ctrl + RightClick should do different things but via NoMachine they function the same. I also tried to check the “emulate right mouse button”. Then the ctrl + RightClick works but ctrl + LeftClick performs nothing. Do anyone one know how to have separate function for ctrl + LeftClick and ctrl + RightClick?  Thank you!

    EDIT: after checking the “emulate right mouse button” box, the ctrl + RightClick and ctrl + LeftClick performs the same thing which is ctrl + RightClick is supposed to do

    Hello.

    Does it makes any different if you use a different client machine with a different OS, Windows for example?

    Inspect events forwarded on actions Ctrl+Left Button and Ctrl+Right Button. Launch the xev tool using a terminal in the remote session. You would restrict inspection to mouse and keyboard events for better readability: xev -event keyboard -event mouse

    Hey graywolf, thanks for your reply.

    I have no idea how to interpret the results so I upload two logs and hope to get some help.

    Tested events are 5 times of ctrl+leftClick followed by 5 time of ctrl+RightClick for both logs.

    Above behaviors were restricted in between “a” from keyboard

    xev.log : “emulate right mouse button” box is not checked

    xev_emulateRight.log : “emulate right mouse button” box is checked

    To summarize the issue I have again:

    When “emulate right mouse button” box is not checked, both ctrl+LeftClick and ctrl+RightClick function as ctrl+LeftClick

    When “emulate right mouse button” box is checked, both ctrl+LeftClick and ctrl+RightClick function as ctrl+RightClick

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi whitewitch,

    The log files failed to attach. Can you send them directly to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com? Please make sure you use the title of the topic as the subject of your email. Thanks!

    Hey,

    I sent those files via email last week and was wondering whether they were received or got lost?

    Hello. I would expect to find ButtonPress/ButtonRelease events, but I can’t see any.
    I had to spend some more words about the way xev works, sorry. In order to record events, you have to generate them on the xev window: move the pointer over the xev window, then Ctrl+click on it.

    Hello, the log actually shows 10 events Ctrl+LeftClick where you issued 5 left and 5 right button clicks. It looks that events are created with wrong button code. We managed to reproduce, so I think we are going to open a Trouble Report.
