That'll solve the problem for a file manager, but there is another related problem which it won't solve. When the mouse moves after the button down of a single click in e.g. Firefox the link can move instead of registering a click. Getting the mouse button down and up in a short time is as difficult as getting a reliable double click it would seem. The text of the link then floats above the page and drops wherever the release of the mouse button happens. This makes opening pages from a link somewhat dependent on being able to keep the mouse stable. Apologies for the mission creep.

Thanks anyway for the suggestion.

Not at my Ubuntu machine so can't check. But, I've got my opensuse laptop at 
hand. There's an option to use a single click to open files and folders.  Not 
sure if this is of use.
