I have an ASUS EEE PC with Ubuntu 10.04 on it.  My mouse is the touchpad on the netbook. I forget the driver/make... basically if its focused on a textbox or open line of text in OpenOffice it will insert either the web address of the page in Mozilla or just text in OpOf?  If the pointer is over any sort of button it will click it??? it is really frustrating and does not happen when i boot in windows so i dont think its a hardware issue?? Can someone please help???
