#91 Disable mouse over auto selection


It would be great to have an option to disable the mouse over auto selection feature. Some people (including me) are not used to it ;-)

Note: This behaviour is only available in "open files with single click" mode.

    I would like to bump this request for pcmanfm-git, because the current behaviour is confusing:

    1. Select multiple files for some action.
    2. Accidentally moving the mouse a little might destroy the 1. selection, because the mouse might move over an unselected file.

    (true only when "open files with single click" is enabled)

    2 buzlite: don't you think there was a reason to mark that duplicate? Your suggestions are:
    a) exactly how it works right now;
    b) not related to the subject (subject is auto-selection but your suggestions are about all mouse interaction with widget).
    Thank you.

    This issue should be handled in 1.2.0-beta0 version of libfm setting "auto_selection_delay" configuration option to 0. Test it, please, when it's possible for you. Note that you should recompile pcmanfm as well to use new version of libfm.
    Thank you very much.
