Problem: drag_select


I can’t use mouse in text edit area. Sublime said:
Unable to parse command: drag_select {“event”: {“button”: 1, “x”: 394,5.0, “y”: 765,5.0}}

or (If I press right button):
Unable to parse command: context_menu {“event”: {“button”: 2, “x”: 394,5.0, “y”: 765,5.0}}

Sublime work in Debian Linux whezy amd64. Build: 2138

I try to use another versions of editor and problem exists in their.

Please help )))


Mouse click does not work on the text
Text selection and scrolling with mouse Debian
SOLVED-impossible to move the cursor with mouse openSUSE12.2
Mouse click does not work on the text

This is a locale issue: the number should be “394.5” rather than “394,5.0”. Sublime Text will set the locate to “C” at startup, via:

setlocale(LC_NUMERIC, "C");

However this must be failing for you - perhaps your machine doesn’t have a C locale? (!)

Problem really was in locale.
Before runing of sublime I make: export LC_NUMERIC=C and sublime works without errors.




Thank you ! This helped ! I had exactly the same issue … i use Xubuntu 20.04 64-bit … it’s unclear what i did when it happened … all other programs, like another text editor, had no problems with mouse click and selecting text etc. only Sublime Text (3 build 4126) … i must say i was creating a python script which used many ANSI codes to control colored terminal output … could that have been the cause ? Or how did LC_NUMERIC not be “C” ? Anyhow, i’m glad i found this forum post.
