I am using my Macbook air to connect to a Linux work machine via NoMachine.
The left and right mouse clicks function ok. I am using a webpage where ctrl + LeftClick and ctrl + RightClick should do different things but via NoMachine they function the same. I also tried to check the “emulate right mouse button”. Then the ctrl + RightClick works but ctrl + LeftClick performs nothing. Do anyone one know how to have separate function for ctrl + LeftClick and ctrl + RightClick? Thank you!May 5, 2021 at 17:26 #33256
EDIT: after checking the “emulate right mouse button” box, the ctrl + RightClick and ctrl + LeftClick performs the same thing which is ctrl + RightClick is supposed to doMay 6, 2021 at 09:17 #33266
Does it makes any different if you use a different client machine with a different OS, Windows for example?
Inspect events forwarded on actions Ctrl+Left Button and Ctrl+Right Button. Launch the xev tool using a terminal in the remote session. You would restrict inspection to mouse and keyboard events for better readability:
xev -event keyboard -event mouseMay 7, 2021 at 08:46 #33284
Hey graywolf, thanks for your reply.
I have no idea how to interpret the results so I upload two logs and hope to get some help.
Tested events are 5 times of ctrl+leftClick followed by 5 time of ctrl+RightClick for both logs.
Above behaviors were restricted in between “a” from keyboard
xev.log : “emulate right mouse button” box is not checked
xev_emulateRight.log : “emulate right mouse button” box is checked
To summarize the issue I have again:
When “emulate right mouse button” box is not checked, both ctrl+LeftClick and ctrl+RightClick function as ctrl+LeftClick
When “emulate right mouse button” box is checked, both ctrl+LeftClick and ctrl+RightClick function as ctrl+RightClick

The log files failed to attach. Can you send them directly to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com? Please make sure you use the title of the topic as the subject of your email. Thanks!May 10, 2021 at 16:14 #33366
I sent those files via email last week and was wondering whether they were received or got lost?May 10, 2021 at 18:04 #33370
Hello. I would expect to find ButtonPress/ButtonRelease events, but I can’t see any.
I had to spend some more words about the way xev works, sorry. In order to record events, you have to generate them on the xev window: move the pointer over the xev window, then Ctrl+click on it.May 11, 2021 at 16:29 #33383
Hi, thanks for the explanation. I sent another email with two log files again. Hope I did it correctly this time. Thank you in advance. Appreciate it.May 14, 2021 at 18:53 #33455
Hello, the log actually shows 10 events Ctrl+LeftClick where you issued 5 left and 5 right button clicks. It looks that events are created with wrong button code. We managed to reproduce, so I think we are going to open a Trouble Report.May 17, 2021 at 17:13 #33486
Thanks and that would be great! Please let me know when it is fixed. Thank you. Appreciate it!May 18, 2021 at 10:38 #33504
Hello. Here’s the TR: Right mouse button behaves like left button if Control key is pressed down
