Ubuntu 17.10 Accessibility bug (Pointing & Clicking)
Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:
Status in gnome-shell package in Ubuntu:
Installed Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 17.10.1
"Pointing & Clicking" presents several misbehaviors.
Pointing & Clickling can be activated normally under Accessibility tab
on Settings, but it does Not behave as expected anymore.
When it is activated, the mouse pointer does Not move at all on any
application/environment by using any of the numpad keys.
Clicking with key 5 on numpad does Not work on Nautilus or on
Toolbars/Apps menu (as well as dragging windows by title bar, or
resizing windows, by holding key 5 and dragging mouse).
Clicking also does Not work on applications such as Settings,
Clicking with numpad Does work inside and Only Inside the content of
specific applications, such as Firefox, Chrome, Dropbox client,
desktop area (where desktop icons are placed).
The tests Have been done both with numlock ON and OFF.
The origin of this problem may be the integration of "Pointing &
Clicking" with Gnome.
