I disabled the touchscreen by adding `blacklist hid-multitouch` to `/etc/modprobe.d/hid_multitouch.conf`, rebooted, and within 15 minutes the bug was back.
It appears as though the super key gets "stuck". * I have super + e bound to open nautilus, and if I press e when my computer gets into this state, it does indeed open nautilus. * The behavior of the mouse when holding down `super` is consistent with the described behavior. Please advise as soon as possible. This bug has rendered my linux installation unusable. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to firefox in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/402892 Title: Mouse cursor gets stuck in "drag and drop" mode Status in X.Org X server: New Status in chromium package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in firefox package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in rapidsvn package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: Binary package hint: rapidsvn When clicking on the Bookmark root or on one of the bookmarks below the mouse cursor gets stuck in "drag n drop" mode, blocking all keyboard entry and also mouse clicks for the the whole GUI (systemwide).
