Default single click?

That's up to your file manager. I know that in Thunar (my fm of choice)
you can set that in the settings panel (one of the last tabs), but I
dont know for everything else.

/snip PGP/

Thank you. I'm running Squeeze, and I'm not sure what the default
file manager is, but here's what I had to do to get to that point:
System>Preferences>File management>Behavior. First option is to
select single click. It works perfectly.

Wouldn't you think that Linux would automatically default to that?

Default single click?

Hi,

No, I wouldn't, and I believe it's better that way.

At least for accessibility reasons, it's better to keep the more
"sturdy",
less error-prone alternative default. It's very easy to switch to the
other
one, but for some people (or in some situations), switching the other
way

might be somewhere on a scale from hard to impossible.


Thx,
Al.
