Problem with mouse on Ubuntu 18.04.5 - the mouse use itself sometimes right click

Asked by Piotr on 2021-02-20

Dear Community,

I have problem with my mouse on Ubuntu 18.04.5. Sometimes I noticed that mouse use itself right click. Example I didn't click right mouse button but on my system I can see that this used it. I don't know what is the problem? It is a bug? I hope that this is not problem with the system like malware or something like that. I have this problem from this moment when I installed Ubuntu 20.04 and 5.8 kernel. Of course I returned to Bionic. I also visited in this same time this website -->
but this is official website of Lubuntu project so I hope that this is not website with malware?

In the future How I can check if my Ubuntu have malware? ClamAV is good for this? Of course if website is good I don't think that I have malware because I didn't install any application or visited websites with are in the risk.

Do you know what is the best antivirus for linux to scan system? This can be helpful information for the future. It is ESET software?

I hope that you can help.

I will check tomorrow but I think that i found the fix for this issue. I simple change USB port on my machine and now this looks like this work normal. I think that this is bug so how I can reset this port when I have this bug? I want to plug to this port because this is more ergonomic for me. Do you now something about it?

Can you help with this problem?
