      Hello everyone, I’m fairly new to the forums and the OS, so this might be a stupid question, but I just installed antix 22. This has happened to me in the past with the same PC on linux mint as well. In linux mint, it was just a driver issue, and once I installed the drivers, right-clicking started working again. But what are the drivers I need for right-clicking in AntiX? Is this even a driver issue?

      (PS: I use a 4GB RAM HP Pavillion x360 convertible)


        Hi, I never experiences such an issue.
        You may try the following:
        1) Try a different antiX kernel (4.4 past EOL, 4.9 past EOL, 4.19, 5.10) – newer or older depending on your HW.
        2) Search for Debian and the mouse/notebook model you have – the driver is probably the same in antiX as in Debian and you could find it this way.
        My guess is the drivers are the same as in Linux mint assuming it was the Debian edition.

        In any case, post output of ‘inxi -Fxz’ which will give more information to anyone who decides to help.


          Sometimes, common sense is the way to go- you had the same exact problem using another Linux distribution… And you found out it was a driver’s problem… so….
          You did not say it, so we are assuming you are talking about problems with the trackpad, not a mouse connected to the computer, right?
          Like sybok said – try different Kernels (you can choose, at boot time between the 2 kernels installed by defaul) and see if that helps.
          How did you solve the problem in Mint? What did you install? Probably, like sybok also suggests, the same drivers you used in Mint may work in antiX…



            So I tried installing the drivers that worked for me in linux mint, but APT can’t find them.

            Also, here is the output that came from inxi -Fxz:

              Is it a secret what those drivers are called?

              Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

              antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.


                @RockZombie4 – I know you are new here… But you need to provide details about your situation.
                Asking for help here is like going to a doctor: you don’t just sit there and say: “I have a pain” and expect the doctor, magically to guess where you have that pain, what’s causing it and how to cure it, right? You have to provide details…
                In this case, please do tell us what driver are you trying to install, or no one can help you- trust me, we do this for free, no one is going to buy a computer like yours, install antiX on in to see what’s the problem and find out how to solve it… You have to be proactive and give as much relevant details as possible- no one can guess what that driver is…

                  @rockzombie4: Based on the inxi -Fxz report, it appears that your hardware is Intel Pentium N3700 based, also noted with Intel Atom/Celeron peripheral components.

                  It does appear that you reached here successfully with the 5.10.142-antix.2-amd64-smp kernel; I’ve had mixed results with that particular kernel, while others find it to be their favorite.

                  All the devices are recognized by the information report, so which driver or drivers are NOT providing you with the expected features?
                  What features don’t work as you prefer or expect, and what evidence suggests that it’s a driver issue?
                  Is the “right click” the only “problem”?
