Opera: Middle-click does not scroll/pan in Linux

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2009-09-05 11:59

I'm pretty sure that this wasn't happening with the 9.x releases. But, I found that when I middle-clicked in Opera to get the scroll icon and scroll up/down a page, all that happened was that whatever was in my clipboard got pasted into the page, with the page trying to navigate to the clipboard text. In Opera's defence, the paste action is generally the default action across all applications in Linux. However, this also made this behaviour inconsistent across different platforms and even across other browsers on the same platform.

The joys of the Eclipse update manager

Submitted by Druss on Thu, 2008-03-06 13:19

The Eclipse update manager has to be the most annoying updater ever fucking written. What a pile of refuse :/

I'm sure that the Eclipse developer community has their own private updater as I am certain no sane man can stand working with it.


  • If I want the update to run in the background, I should also be able to run it in the foreground.
  • If I cancel the update, it should be cancelled immediately. It should not be "cancelling" for the rest of eternity and require a restart of Eclipse to get done.
