Using a new Ubuntu 9.10 install with Wubi. I go into System > Preferences > Mouse and adjust the sensitivity bars and acceleration with no effect. Anyone got an idea for how to adjust this? It's too slow.
Having the hardest time turning the mouse sensitivity down in xfce. Various xset settings make no real difference. I move the mouse under an inch and it covers the entire screen easily. razertool-gtk won't recognize my mouse (also, I couldn't find any documentation at all for it, but maybe I'm just dumb), the xfce settings don't lower it enough, and the last thing I was going to try was to edit my xorg.conf. I though there was supposed to be a mouse section there, and this is all I have in my xorg.conf file:
The mouse sensitivity in Ubuntu is a little too high, and no matter how I set the mouse settings its either too sensitive or too slow...or too fast. I have tried many times to find the correct mouse settings adjusting both acceleration and sensitivity but nothing seems to be good. I've tried both my Microsoft mouse and Logitech MX Performance mouse and the same problem is apparent on both. Is there a bug with Ubuntu's mouse settings or something (I'm sure I heard about it some time ago - that the sensitivity settings aren't working exactly as they should be?), and is there any way around it? (or at least, be able to set good settings some how).
Running Lucid, has been a bit glitch here and there, but generally ok. I use Audacity a lot, so need "drag" with the mouse. Also "drag" on the desktop has gone totally now it just opens the file or folder. Any mouse control app that works? Using a ps2 led mouse, it works fine under wine/crossover apps.
i have a minor problem with the wacom tablet CTH-461. the gestures and mouse sensitivity with the finger touch is too sensitive... i mean that the mouse is moving really fast and you have to be very careful when you are pinching / zooming with your fingers... and second question. where i have to submit this "bug" bcs the 11.04 is still alpha and i want the tablet to be in final release as much as possible supported.
I installed unity on ubuntu 10.10. when it first starts there is no problem ... but when I hover over any window the mouse gets stuck or at least REALLY slow that I cant control it. (I noticed also the keyboard does the same) some sites I searched suggested to remove unity application package and some other pack .. but it did not help. I use ATI (propriety drivers) on a Toshiba Laptop intel core i3, 3GB ram note that I downloaded gnome3-shell to try it but the exact same thing happened as unity.
I'm using synergy+ with Windows XP as a server and a CentOS client. The mouse speed on the client (Linux) seems really slow. Is there a way to have the mouse speed from the server persist to the clients?
Since I upgraded to Maverick, every now and then (maybe once an hour) my system becomes very slow for about half a minute. The mouse cursor reacts only very slowly and also applications freeze for for some time.
This happens without the CPU being on full load or the hard disk being active.
I made a clean ubuntu installation on a new hard drive a week ago, but the problem persists.
I have a Thinkpad R400 with an Intel GMA 4500 graphics card an an Intel T5670 Core 2 Duo processor. I'm running the most up to date stable version of ubuntu. Kernel 2.6.35-22.
I know the description of the problem is very vague, but it's hard to describe it more accurately. I couldn't find anything helpful on google or the forum. If you have any ideas what might cause the problem or which log files might provide useful information, please let me know. Most importantly, the problem did not occur before I upgraded to Maverick.
I have Ubuntu Lucid Lynx since it came out, and until now it worked fine. I am updating regularly. Today too, I installed everything offered to me by updates manager (I looked through the list and didnt see anything I wouldnt want to update, but I dont remember everything that was there), and it asked for restart. Ok, so I restarted. Everything seemed fine. Then I tried to look at a picture, in normal,default viewer, an huh. It took 3 seconds for the mouse to select the pic, then another about 6 to open the viewer (and we are talking about a 40 KB pic). That was slow, but I thought maybe it was an accident. But no, everything I tried since goes slowly, at about a quarter of speed as before the update. I tried to remove unnecessary things with apt-get autoremove, I tried to stop or end all processes that seemed unnecessary, with no result. I restarted thrice. Nothing comes to mind anymore.
I have some problems with my Ubuntu 11.04 x64 Maybe it's the video card because moving the windows goes very slow Wine is also doing very strange because when I try to open a game the screen blacks out and can't move my mouse and then it crashes. I have the drivers installed of my ATI Radeon HD5650 ( fglrx)
I need to know the necessity of swap partition in Ubuntu.. I have recently bought a new HD and installed Ubuntu(with NO swap,only Ubuntu on a single partition) on it and am facing frequent,random hanging issues with it.. Earlier,my old HD used an swap partition along with main partition and i never faced hanging issues at that time..
Actually, when in hanging mode,the cpu light keeps blinking continuously and the mouse movement is very slow,the screen also becomes dim.After sometime,it comes out of hanging mode and mouse movement becomes normal.Sometimes,even after waiting for 15-20 minutes,it does not come out of hanging mode and the system has to be restarted.(this is what forced me to look for a possible solution to this)
I'm having trouble with my mouse wheel. On one click, it pulls down to the halfway point. This leaves me with either dragging the bar around on the right hand side, or using the touch pad. this is a new (to me) notebook, which I haven't had for long. I just can't find where to adjust the sensitivity.
The track pad on a Macbook Pro 8.3 is hypersensitive and interprets the lightest touch as a click. Even brushing the track pad with the sleeve of my shirt counts as a click. How do I decrease the sensitivity of the track pad?
I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, which as far as I know, is supported. The pressure sensitivity works well on GIMP, then I noticed that it doesn't seem to work in any of the other graphics programs I tried using. Like Pencil animation. (which I know supports pressure sensitivity)
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 When my cursor hovers over an icon for not more than a second, if that, the folder opens; it's the same with links. I barely have to touch Firefox, and it comes up. I'd like to be able to click on a folder rather than just pass over it. Surely there must be a setting that can be change
It seems pam_ldap in 11.2 is not case insensitive anymore when it comes to checking usernames with uid from ldap.It is working fine on 11.1 though (both systems with latest updates up to now)(I didn't try 11.3 yet)On our ldap server (which is out of my control), the usernames are not unified, some are all in lowercase and some are capitalized, but on our Linux servers we have all usernames in lowercase.
Since our upgrade to 11.2, the users that their uid on ldap server does not match exactly to the username on Linux servers can not login anymore. Is there any option to change this behavior and force pam_ldap to be case-insensitive or convert uid/usernames to lowercase? or all of a sudden pam_ldap decided to become case sensitive!?
using gsynaptics to increase the touchpad sensitivity on my macbook 4,1. However,installing gsynaptics makes my fans increase to 6000rpm every 10 minutes. I uninstalled gsynaptics, and it no longer does that.But, I want greater sensitivity! =( its a catch 22.Is there a manual way to increase sensitivity without installing gsynaptics? or another alternative tool?
I have a Broadcom based PCMCIA wifi card that works great on an older kernel in Debian after a friend of mine did the fwcutter business.
I just installed Backtrack 4 release version on another laptop. While this card works right out of the box the sensitivity is greatly reduced. The built in wifi card (Intel chipset) can see twice as many APs at any given time.
Now, I know that Broadcom chipsets are not the best but this card normally has fantastic sensitivity and Tx power plus an external antenna connector so I really need to get it working properly. When it's working properly under Linux or Windows it blows the competition away.
I am experimenting with attaching a second monitor to my Ubuntu Natty laptop, and I have noticed an annoying "feature" that makes any multi-monitor setup so unusable that I actually prefer my single-monitor laptop setup. It appears that the system automatically "scales" the X- and Y-axis sensitivity of the touchpad to match the dimensions of the "virtual" screen that spans across multiple monitors. This is best illustrated with an example. If I set up two monitors side-by-side, the touchpad's X-axis speed is doubled, so that moving my finger the same distance on the touchpad causes the mouse on the screen to move twice as far in the X direction as it did when I had only a single monitor. Yet the Y-axis sensitivity remains unchanged, so all diagonal mouse movements end up at the wrong angle. This makes the touchpad almost completely useless, since the mouse on the screen does not move in the same direction as my hand on the pad.
Is there anything I can do about this? I just want the X- and Y-axis speeds to be identical, and I definitely don't want my mouse sensitivity changing because I added a screen. The touchpad is a Synaptics touchpad, by the way. The laptop is a Dell M1330 with an nVidia graphics card.
In testing that all my bits of hardware work I have come to my 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator. The hardware is virtually new and works absolutely fine in XP (that is what I am trying to escape from).
When the spacenavigator is plugged in it works absolutely fine so long as I move the thing with a soft feather. It is so sensitive that it is un-useable.My problem is that although the system has recognised it and has it in the hardware scan in YaST but nowhere can I find any way to change the sensitivity settings and button functions.
