I've swapped a couple of emails with +Owen K over the last few weeks about improving mouse accessibility in Ubuntu.  Owen needs to use a feature like Click Lock on Windows where you click a mouse button once and it stays locked down while you move the mouse, or joystick, or pointing device of your choice, and then you click again to unlock.  This allows you to drag items around without having to keep the button held down all the time.

I did a quick bit of searching and found this:

http://blog.mbirgin.com/?c=page&ID=550&t=lockeddragsclicklockinubuntulinux

which describes what we're trying to achieve but when we try it we get errors like:

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

I'd like to get a feature like Click Lock into the a11y settings for Ubuntu in time for 16.04.  Does anyone have experience that can help us here?

Note: kmousetool's Smart drag is not what we're after.

It's amazing to see the speed at which new systems can be added to Make.  A testament to a good design and plenty of tests.

Here is a little bit of the start of my day: As usual, I open the Ubuntu Make large test suite running continuously against trunk and latest release package. I saw that since

Just released img-fixheight 0.1.0 element! This web component is now updated to Polymer 1.0.

There is no API breakage for existing users. This version standardized around the new Polymer syntax, code cleanup. Tests and demo pages are updated to new local dom manipulation. You can fetch this new release through github or bower, at your convenience. Enjoy!

Hot from the builders: Ubuntu Make 0.8.2!

This release fixes Visual Studio Code support (the archive content and upstream web pages changed recently) and add the newly x86 support for it!

Tests have of course been adapted to ensure we continue be aware of such cases (in addition to user bug reports that are always a pleasure to get, knowing that your tools is used in real world ;)).

Thanks again to everyone, and remember that #ubuntulovesdevelopers

INCOMING! #ubuntu #ota4 It's a biggie! :)
Took about 6 minutes to do the update.
Then first boot took a bit longer as it processes apparmor profiles (I think) 

... and it's done
