Right Click on RasPad

Touchscreen tablets and displays make it easy for you to perform simple navigation tasks with your fingers or stylus, but at some point, you may want to use right-click commands to quickly access context-specific shortcuts.

Here we use evdev-rce to make RasPad’s right-click command still available.

Enter the following command to install the required software.

sudo apt install build-essential libevdev2 libevdev-dev -y
git clone 'https://github.com/PeterCxy/evdev-right-click-emulation.git'
cd 'evdev-right-click-emulation'

Enter the following command to build.

make all

Copy the file to the /usr directory.

sudo cp 'out/evdev-rce' '/usr/local/bin/'

Make it executable.

sudo chmod +x '/usr/local/bin/evdev-rce'

Modify the /etc/rc.local file to enable boot-up.

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

After entering rc.local, add the following command before exit 0.

sudo /usr/local/bin/evdev-rce &

Press Ctrl+C -> Y to exit and save the rc.local file, and then run sudo reboot to restart RasPad.

sudo reboot

After restarting, you can long press on the RasPad desktop and see if the right click function appears.
