Intellij Idea alt + click to evaluate debugger code not working in Mint

On Windows, and I think Mac, holding alt + left click on a section of code when paused in the debugger will evaluate the expression and show the value in a tooltip. It's much more convenient than alt + f8 and ctrl + alt + 8.

In Linux Mint, holding alt and clicking doesn't do anything (I've disabled Mint's "Special key to move and resize windows").

Is there a way to map it to alt + left click, or a different key combination to evaluate an expression by clicking on it?


  • Found it mapped to ctrl + alt + shift + left click under Quick Evaluate Expression as a Mouse Shortcut.
