CentOS 5 Hardware :: Laptop Touchpad : Mouse Cursor Jumping After Boot / Fix It?

May 20, 2011

I have a small issue I couldn't find a solution for. I'm running Centos 5.5 on a Fujitsu-Siemens S6120 laptop. When I boot my system and use the touchpad for the first couple of seconds my mouse cursor jumps around the screen sporadically and also mouse buttons "gets pressed" by themselves (without me actually touching them). After 1-2 seconds the situation becomes absolutely normal - mouse moves good and buttons work only when I press them.
Everything repeats after the reboot.

I see the following error in the system log:
psmouse.c: Mouse at isa0060/serio4/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away

It appears right when I try to use the touchpad for the first time, I guess.

The situation isn't critical, but is quite annoying. Is there a way to get it fixed? I searched the Net, but found mostly issues with mouse loosing sync during operation - such thing never happened to me, as my issue appears only once per boot.

Ubuntu :: Mousing Cursor Jumping Across Screen?

Nov 9, 2010

I have a problem with my mouse jumping to the top left of the screen (hovering over Applications), this will happen roughly every 5-20secs and makes it impossible to use.This started happening completely out of the blue after several hours of using my desktop today. Before anyone asks: It is not the mouse or hardware related.I have rebooted into fail-safe graphics mode and the problem has disappeared so I guess something related to nvidia driver or compizThere are similar bugs I have found but the solution are not applicable to my system.System: Dell Precision M4300, nVidia Graphics, Ubuntu x64 10.10

Ubuntu :: Erratic And Random Character Cursor Jumping

Dec 20, 2010

I have a dv7-4172us laptop from HP, a new laptop. It has AMD Phenom II N950 -64 bits processors. I am running LiveCD version 10.04 LTS 64 bits in "Try Ubuntu" mode. If I type type fast, the character cursor (not the mouse pointer ) moves away randomly, like a few rows up from present typing location. Sometimes, something else, like another application scrolls it self while I am using Gedit to type this posting. the cursor jumps here and there. Typing on this forum page also produce the same erratic cursor jumping problems!

I also disconnect my optical wireless USB mouse, and still have the same erratic cursor problem. I do not have the ANY problems with Win 7 -64 bits. This is a serious problem. It will render any laptop useless with Linux I so look forward to using Linux.

Debian :: Firefox / Thunderbird Jumping Logo Below Cursor For Long Time In KDE

May 7, 2011

I downloaded Firefox and Thunderbird from the mozilla site and unpacked them and added the executables to the main menu. When I start either of them, the respective logo jumps up and down below the cursor for more than 10 seconds after the program has finished loading. Is there an easy fix to this small but annoying issue? I run Squeeze with KDE on a Thinkpad R61.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Configuring The Touchpad And Bluetooth-mouse?

Jun 30, 2011

I've installed CentOS 5.6 to my laptop, primarily to use some simulation programs. With much help of google I'm getting my hardware and software to work quite well, but I still have some troubles.My first problem is my Synaptics-Touchpad. It is extremely sensitive and I am not able to scroll. Is there any application which allows me to configure it properly? Before CentOS, I've tried openSUSE 11.4, where there was an application especially for configuring synaptics touchpad (dont't remember the name though). In general, the "feeling" of the touchpad was way much better under openSUSE, but I can't define that properly. I have a bluetooth mouse (Dicota Blue Light) conntected to my laptop, which is working fine except for the scroll wheel, which doesn't work at all. How can I activate it?

Fedora :: Mouse - Suddenly Jumping And Scrolling All Over The Desktop

Jan 23, 2011

Suddenly, today my mouse seems to have a mind of it's own. For no reason, it's suddenly jumping and scrolling all over the desktop in rapid fashion and apparently left-clicking at will. Reboot does not solve the problem, although it became less after the reboot.

Updates today were:

This is a generic optical mouse that's been used for several years without incident.

So, is there anything that might have caused the problem or is the mouse kaput?

Okay, dug through the drawers and found a Logitech usb optical mouse. Giving that a try as it seems to me that the mouse may be shot.

OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird Icon Jumping / Stops Jumping / Thunderbird Does Not Start

Mar 15, 2011

I have installed 11.4, and it seems (seemed) to work OK so far. I installed Thunderbird via the opensuse "1 click install". the installation ran smoothly, but now a click on the Thunderbird icon does not activate any mail client; the only success is that Thunderbird icon jumps joyfully and then disappears.

CentOS 5 :: 5.6 Install Blinking Cursor At Boot?

Aug 20, 2011

Im using 5.6 DVD install to a HW raid1 Card (2 x SSDs in raid 1, Arcea Card Natively recognized by centos anaconda).I select to wipe the entire drive and remove ALL partitions (ive also tried setting this to just remove linux partitions). The install location (raid drive) is /dev/sdh the A-G are other 1.5TB drives.I also un-check EVERY drive except the raid drive (sdh). it then asks me if it ok to wipe/reformat drive (Prompts Yes or No, i click yes)Every time i do this install i get the blinking cursor after post. Im told this means i dont have GRUB installed, i do NOT disable grub or anything related to the boot-loader in anaconda installer (all those setting are left at default). ive also tried setting this to NO boot loader, and i get the same result.

This DOES work as i have gotten it to install and run prefect for a few weeks. I think what i did then was removed ALL THE DRIVES except teh raid drive, and then did the install then. This way the install drive was /dev/sdA and all worked, even when i added the drives back online after the install, the machine ran great and booted several times this way (i had to do a os re-install or else i would have left it as is.)YES bios is 100% set to the raid card as the first device to boot from, Centos 6 installed to the same raid drive boots and works great - but i need 5.6.no google help on this one, searched hard, only one article on Ubuntu doing this all the time.also everytime im retrying to install 5.6, i go into the HW raid card's bios and delete and recreate the raid1 volume (it takes about 10 min for it to format and initialize the raid1 array

Debian :: Touchscreen & Mouse Touchpad Messed Up?

I'm posting from my brand new out of the box HP Pavilion dv6, great machine, but I'm having some hardware issues.My touchscreen isn't working.As well, my touchpad mouse isn't functioning correctly. The left/right click buttons are treated as part of the touch pad, which makes clicking things very difficult. As well, it doesn't appear to have a right click function at all

Ubuntu :: Mouse Press On Touchpad Does Not Work Sometimes?

Jan 30, 2010

My hardware is a Gateway LT2104u netbook.Bought it today, took it out the box and installed the netbook version of Ubuntu.Now here is the problem.The touchpad works fine. I am able to move the mouse all over the screen, the keyboard works find too. The problem is with the mouse click. The clicks are recognized when I am in the 'overview screen'. For example I can click on firefox and it opens. However once firefox is open it does not respond to any clicks. Even clicks to close firefox.

I push Alt+f4 to close the program and then I can click into any other (or the original) programs, but once inside the problem replicates.The problem was present in the 'live cd' during install as well.Does anybody know what might cause this? The whole netbook is useless at this point since I need to click to pretty much do anything in most applications (the Terminal program is one of the few exceptions )

Debian Hardware :: PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Detected As Mouse?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze on an HP Pavilion dv6-6040ca. The touchpad featured is relatively new, which is likely the root of my problem. The touchpad with its winblows driver features a backlight, two mouse buttons (buttons,not dedicated touchpad space), and an 'on/off' switch/zone in the top left of the touchpad. The touchpad zone works well for pointing, but no gesture support. The touchpad's tap/click feature works way too well, which is very frustrating. The touchpad is detected as a mouse, so there is no option in System->Preferences->Mouse for a touchpad. Both mouse buttons function as expected. The 'on/off' switch/zone does not function, nor does the backlight.

The only feature I really need is the ability to turn off the tap/click feature, as it makes typing a nightmare. It's gotten to the point where I wrote a shell script to toggle the loading/unloading of my psmouse module (which isn't a bad solution, but I don't want my general account having access to modprobe).

Here are some details:

cat /proc/bus/input/devices
I: Bus=0017 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"


I'm using the proprietary ATI driver (couldn't do 3D with the open driver), and I'm using a proprietary wireless module for my RaLink wireless adapter.

Passing parameters to the psmouse module
Unloading the psmouse module
Trusting HAL entirely (no xorg)


also the xorg input synaptics driver is installed. Now here's the fun part where the obvious things I've overlooked are quickly pointed out to me.

Debian Hardware :: No Touchpad Option In Mouse Settings?

Aug 19, 2011

I've been looking everywhere to find out how to configure my touchpad so I can enable two-finger scrolling and disable-while-typing. I have a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze (I did NOT upgrade from a previous version of Debian, as that seems to cause this problem with some Ubuntu installations). I have the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics driver installed (already reinstalled it to no avail) and the gsynaptics package, which was supposed to add the tab in the mouse preferences but did not (as suggested here: I have a Samsung RF510-S01US if there is something about the touchpad this computer has that is not supported or something. (I know for a fact that this touchpad can handle multi-touch inputs, as it works under Windows 7)

Fedora :: Auto-disable Touchpad When Mouse Is Plugged In?

Oct 17, 2010

this issue has been bugging me for years. I want the same capability in Fedora that exists in most recent versions of Windows -- disable the touchpad on my laptop if an external mouse is plugged in. Note that my how-to is a little hardware-specific regarding the actual disabling of the touchpad; I'll discuss that more at the end of the guide.

So, here goes: For my OS (Fedora 13 x86_64) and hardware (Dell Precision M4500) - I needed a specific utility and three scripts. This Dell's trackpad and nipple-stick are seen as an 'internal' PS/2 mouse by Fedora, so I had to install 'xinput' to disable it.

Programming :: Get Application Under Mouse Cursor?

Jan 2, 2010

Is there a somewhat straightforward way to get the name or pid of the application that is under the mouse's cursor? What I'm trying to do: This is just a "what if" at this point, I would like to run some script that would obtain the name/pid of any application that the mouse cursor is on, and use xte to assign different functions to different mouse buttons. For instance, assign a given button the Forward or Back function when the cursor is on a browser, but assign a scroll-left or scroll-right to the same button when it's on a spreadsheet. Is there any way to accomplish this, say, in a script that I could run at startup as a background process?

Debian :: Mouse / Touchpad And Keyboard Not Working After Configuring Xorg

Jul 31, 2011

I was trying to tweak my video card's performance by configuring the xorg.conf file. There were many lines unrelated to the card there; so, to make the file cleaner, I decided to delete all the sections except the one I was dealing with. Obviously I shouldn't have done that. After rebooting the system, all the hardware that provided human interface stopped working. Now I have to find a way to delete that xorg.conf file. The computer is still connecting to the internet, and I have another computer running Debian available. Is there a way to access the broken computer with the other one?

Debian :: Change Mouse Cursor Size?

Jun 20, 2011

I have been trying for quite some days to change the size and theme of the cursor . I was expecting that there be something in preferences in GNOME v2 but is not there (Is there some enhancement there in GNOME v3?) Anyways, after googling quite a bit, I came across a tip to change the the cursor theme. sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme The thing to do here is choose some alternative theme and logout and login back.


Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number: I haven't been able to find how to change cursor sizes as well and what the current size is? I did find another command xrdb -query but that also doesn't seem to be much helpful either :-

Ubuntu :: External Monitor With NO Mouse Cursor?

Apr 30, 2010

I am using a Asus UL30A laptop computer. I just performed an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04. I remember running into this problem before, but I forgot how to fix it. The problem is, when I plug my laptop into the external monitor with my laptop screen turned off automatically when I first log in, I do not see the mouse cursor on the external monitor! The mouse cursor is still here, although invisible - if I do a right-click, the property menu will come up. My current workaround is simple- if I switch to the next workspace (by pressing Ctrl-Alt-right arrow), the cursor will appear from then on.
