I am using FC-17 kernel 3.8.12-100 on an Asus k55vm laptop.
All of a sudden my left touchpad click is causing the session to log off without any notification. Initially I thought that it might be some hardware problem or something but it doesn't log off the terminal session (ctrl+alt+f2). Also it doesn't seem to be a problem of gnome shell because even at the time of login, the problem is there.
At that time my kernel version was 3.8.11-100. I thought that it must be a bug in the kernel and it so happened that kernel update was available. But even after updating I am not able to fix the problem.
The problem is only with left click and tapping the touchpad doesnt cause any problem.
This is not a fatal problem but an accidental click may lead to loss of data.
I had seen some issues with mouse click but none like this. It is just too strange. It seems to be some problem of X-server [my Xorg-server version is 1.12.4-2].
Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem?
Is there any way of disabling the left click while retaining other functions of touchpad?
