    I would suggest you try one of the following:-

    1) try following one of the guides to enable full desktop operation & dispose of the default "fisher price" mode.

    2) Install an alternative version of linux, fedora 11 works pretty well in default but there are a few tweeks that can improve things here http://jorge.fbarr.net/2009/06/11/fedor ... spire-one/ also unbuntu nbr recives good feedback

    3) try using the left mouse button and deleting the item


    Personally option 2 is the best long term option.
