Disable drag / click lock on linux

This can somtimes show up when you are playing games that require longclicking of both mouse buttons. (I found this when playing the heavyweapons in tf2)

Use xinput list to find your device id

Then use xinpit list-props <ID> to find the relevent property name to set.

You can then set the property to 0 to disable it ether by using the device and property name like so

xinput --set-prop 'Kingsis Peripherals ZOWIE Gaming mouse' 'libinput Drag Lock Buttons' 0

or just using the id numbers

xinput set-prop 9 296 0
