Thomas NaserI had a similar problem with my Dell Inspiron 13.
I was able to solve the problem by installing Gnome Tweaks, wherein I was able to det up the mouse button,  and restarted the computer – logging off didn’t work for me.

Mark Rice on G+I thought it was +honkey Magoo who mentioned remapping keys.  What I did to make the config permanent between boots, was to put this line in my .xinitrc
setxkbmap -option caps:backspace
I know you were mapping the mouse click, but hopefully this will help a bit.

ChromeOS update broke WiFi on my Asus Chromebook.   Had to exit Developer Mode to get it back.  Some things, like bookmarks are still there, but I had to reinstall my Android apps.

youtube-dl and ffmpeg fun(download a play list)
youtube-dl playlist_url

(you could possibly do this the easy way by using “youtube-dl -F playlist_url” finding which # is the just audio stream and then doing something like “youtube-dl -f 140 playlist_url”, but I screwed up which f F to use so now I am learning about some good command line tools)

(so now you have a ton of .mp4 files. If you wanted just the audio for these files you can use ffmpeg to extract the audio from these .mp4 and convert them to .ogg)

To convert one file:
ffmpeg -i videofile.mp4 -vn -acodec libvorbis audiofile.ogg

To convert many files:
for vid in *.mp4; do ffmpeg -i “$vid” -vn -acodec libvorbis “${vid%.mp4}.ogg”; done

update to using the super key as the left mouse button
found that doing
xkbset m
xmodmap -e “keycode 133 = Pointer_Button1”
worked but it would time out

but adding
xkbset exp =m
so now the script is

xkbset m
xkbset exp =m
xmodmap -e “keycode 133 = Pointer_Button1”

but I still can’t get it to start at boot
