I have fitted this Waveshare 10 inch LCD touchscreen to my Pi4B (buster). It all works fine but I can't find a way to achieve a Right Mouse Click. Is there a way to get a right click?

  • how do you do a right mouse click on a smartphone?

If long press does not work you can try

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Paste in:

Section "InputClass"
   Identifier "calibration"
   Driver "evdev"
   MatchProduct "FT5406 memory based driver"

   Option "EmulateThirdButton" "1"
   Option "EmulateThirdButtonTimeout" "750"
   Option "EmulateThirdButtonMoveThreshold" "30"

Save the file and reboot (yes reboot is needed).

  • That didn't work for me. I think your link refers to the Official Pi Touchscreen. The file xorg.conf didn't exist so I created it. Was that correct?

  • The above snippet needs to be edited to reflect the name of the actual device: Change MatchProduct "…" to match the name of the device, such as returned by xinput Assuming your Waveshare is this one, the identifier is waveshare HDMI/VGA/AV RTD2660H Viedo Board [sic]

  • Also, rather than xorg.conf, you may want to create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-waveshare-.conffile… (but either should work)
