Need help configuring mouse for elderly
An elderly couple i'm trying to help with their LinuxMint i setup for them need a way to block the mouse from responding to right-click and center mouse click so that only the left-click works. Can this be done?

Also, had setup Chrome for better video speed and it is always asking for a keyring.
How can this be stopped?

Just set the clicks to the same action rather than trying to block them??

Think you're onto something there Burn-IT !
That would most surely be a foolproof tweak for sure!

Can't find an option within LinuxMint that would allow right-click to be same as left.
Maybe an app could do that?

Think next time i'm over there, i'll just slip a nail file under the right side and tape it.

It's odd that Chrome doesn't ask me for a key ring password.

Either i'm in need of eye check or it ain't there.

You should be able to map the keys to perform the function you want. Try the 2nd suggestion here...

Thanks Joe.
I don't dab too often with Linux codes.
Trying to grasp the process.

Going to try team viewer tonight for a second time.
Hope to get their problems solved.

p. s. maybe Opera with turbo will with slow attack connection and key request Google Chrome is always asking for.

Attack connection keyboard suggestion on Android. Should be AT&T connection.
