I will try that next, just having coffee, facing an early appointment at
VA low vision clinic which, with travel, will take up much of my day.
FWIW, I don't think you should be editing the file you are as user changes
go into their own file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. The file at
get overwritten when an update occurs.
Yes I always have to make the same change after some updates, normally
it's a simple thing. I've been doing that for several years, since
whenever they removed the feature. As I said I consider it essential,
and I have two other F24 computers in which it works.
This problem began after I accidentally deleted my F24 system while
making an F25-b installer on a thumb drive via Live Creator, or whatever
it's called, that usually worked also but seemed never to be able to
find the thumb drive target. I gave up and put F24 Live on a DVD using
K3B and did this install on a new hard drive. Fortunately I still had an
old F22 on another drive and could work from that.
Also I just booted this box to Gnome instead of xfce to cover another
base, 3-button copy/paste did not work there.
AHA! I plugged in another old track ball and 3-button copy/paste works
here in Thunderbird. In fact I now have two of the Logitech devices
plugged into USB ports, only the one on the front panel works as expected.
It looks like I have a new avenue to investigate ... Perhaps a main
board problem? There was the Live Creator problem and I noticed that the
USB-3 port on the back panel has not been working recently, only a minor
thing and I pushed that aside. Both track balls are plugged into USB-2
ports, and I made no changes in that arrangement until just adding the
second device ...
That's where I stand now, still confused, may need a new mother board,
