Left click immediately after right clicking #207
I am on Manjaro, XFCE edition, with compton version "0.1_beta2-2" (this is in the "extras" repo on Manjaro). Whenever I right click on the xfce desktop, or in thunar, the drop menu appears but immediately after, the first selection on the drop down menu gets selected. Basically, whenever releasing the right mouse button (on the areas listed above) counts as a left click afterwards. I know this is something to do with compton because when I killed compton and enabled XFCE's window manager the issue was no longer occurring.

I'm sorry for not replying to your report for such a long period of time...
It's a very weird (and weirdly common) issue that releasing the right mouse button somewhat causes "left click" effect. I found numerous reports with all sort of bizarre workarounds on the web: change GTK+ theme, switch mouse to left-handed and back to right-handed, disable then enable "Use nautilus to draw desktop", turn off animation plugin in compositor, use sxhkd to fake mouse movement, "this is a design decision", etc.
Thanks! I'm glad compton is helpful for you! :-)
We have two developers, chjj and me. But I'm not very active recently and chjj hasn't been very active since almost 2 years ago, heh. Maintaining compton is so time-consuming. Investigating an issue and posting a reply could take me hours of time (this one took like 2 hours), so I can't really guarantee this project would even be maintained in the future.

Hey, thanks for replying its fine if you took so and so many days I dont mind. I am going to answer this post like I did my previous. FYI, I forgot to mention I am using the latest stable AMD closed source drivers.
xev | grep -A 3 Button
ButtonRelease event, serial 37, synthetic NO, window 0x4200001,
Which is truly weird... The driver shouldn't affect any input, either. Anyway, I'm glad that you've found a solution.
