I'm not sure if this is a complete description, but items on the desk
top require a double click in a default Ubuntu set-up. Menus and stuff
on the top and bottom panel need only a single click. Links in WEB
browsers and mailers only need a single click. Files etc in the nautilus
file browser need a double click.

I've probably missed something but that covers quite a lot!
