Ubuntu / Apple :: Increase Touchpad Sensitivity Without Using Gsynaptics?

Jul 1, 2010

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?

General :: Touchpad Sensitivity Scales To Virtual Screen Dimensions?

Jul 11, 2011

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.

Ubuntu / Apple :: *.fdi Not Being Used For Touchpad

Mar 3, 2010

I tried installing and using gsynaptics as well, but that just broke my touchpad (yes, I editted xorg and whatnot) on my Macbook 5.1 (aluminum).Really, my touchpad has been working well by default, but it's far to sensitive and moves around as my palm grazes it during typing (even with the "disable while typing" option turned on). Tapping is so sensitive that I accidentally click things all the time. Yes, I can turn that off... but I LIKE it. I love tapping.At any rate, it seems that ubuntu is ignoring whatever settings I add to the said file and I just want to tweak it a little.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Macbook Pro 5, 5 - Touchpad In Karmic

Jan 20, 2010

I recently bought a macbook pro 5,5 (unibody) and I'm running both OSX and Ubuntu 9.10. I love the laptop, but I've been having some issues with the touchpad in karmic.

In OSX, I can keep my thumb on the bottom of the touchpad as if it were a button and operate the rest of the touchpad as normal. With my thumb on the bottom of the pad, I can still click and drag and use two finger scrolling.

In ubuntu, I've used the instructions from[url]

If I have a thumb on the touchpad, it always assumes I'm two-finger scrolling. I've tried synclient BottomEdge=600, but it doesn't make any difference.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Disable Touchpad While Typing

Apr 4, 2011

I'm having a few problems with my touchpad on my MBP 5,5. First off, even though I have selected "disable touchpad while typing" I still randomly click with my palms when I'm trying to type. Am I missing something here? Also is there any fix for the click and drag issues? Most of what I've read on the forum here is old and the apt-get for the packages mentioned gives me a "file unavailable" error. It's okay when I'm at home but I don't normally bring my bluetooth mouse with me everywhere. If only apple had left the mouse button on here...

Ubuntu / Apple :: MacBook Pro 5.5 Touchpad - Drag Fails

Dec 3, 2010

My biggest problem has always been with this touchpad. The fix that I have makes it so that if you click and drag, then release a finger too early, the drag fails. It makes it almost unusable. It is also overly sensitive. I was wondering if anyone has found a solution to this. Right now it is the only thing stopping my migration from Windows.

Ubuntu / Apple :: 10.10 Maverick - PowerBook G4 15" Touchpad Jumpy/useless

Nov 13, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my PowerBook G4 (I think that's powerbook 5,6 but I could be mistaken). Most everything is fine from a function standpoint except for the touchpad/trackpad. Unlike most users who seem to be getting an insensitive touchpad, mine seems to be picking up some interference from an unknown source. The mouse frequently jumps around the screen either horizontally back and forth or sometimes vertically. If I disable the trackpad it seems to stop (at least for a few minutes). Sometimes I can lay my palm flat on the trackpad and it will cause the mouse to stand still also which makes the external mouse usable.

Are there any solutions to this? (I did install the, what is it, gpointing-devices package? The one that provides the GUI for touchpad configuration and that has not helped at all, except that I can use it to periodically disable the trackpad for a temporary fix)

Ubuntu / Apple :: Ignore Finger Resting At Bottom Of Unibody Macbook Pro Touchpad?

Mar 27, 2010

I spent the last hour and a half googling for pointers, reading manpages,and trying synaptics settings to get my touchpad to work like it does in OSX on my unibody macbook pro.I can't find anything that works.What I want: Since my MBP 5,4 doesn't have a dedicated mouse button, I normally rest my thumb on the bottom section of the touchpad.That way I can tap with my thumb while using my index finger to move the pointer.OS X smartly ignores the fact that my thumb is resting on the touchpad,and lets me move the pointer as if my thumb weren't there.I can then use my middle finger for two finger scrolling, and everything magically works

On my nice shiny new install of Ubuntu 9.10, if I have my thumb anywhere on the touchpad, it registers as a two-finger scroll,thus making it impossible to move the pointer while resting my thumb on the touchpad.Even if I disable two-finger scrolling, the cursor will not move with two fingers on the touchpad.A passable solution would be disable two-finger scrolling detection in the lower part of my touchpad, or even disable the lower part of the touchpad completely.A better solution would be to allow me to scroll into the lower portion, but not initiate a two finger scroll from the lower portion.

Synaptics settings that have not worked for me:

AreaBottomEdge: This disables moving the pointer from the bottom section of my touchpad, but does not disable two-finger scrolling from the bottom section. This is essentially the exact opposite of what I want.

BottomEdge: This doesn't seem to have any relation to two-finger scrolling.I haven't been able to get anything useful to come out of setting this.These references haven't helped (although they are interesting):I haven't been able to find any threads discussing this particular issue.

Ubuntu :: Gsynaptics Settings Not Saving?

May 4, 2010

I followed the instructions for installing Gsynaptics on 10.04 to configure my touchpad and it seems to be working. except, something seems to override my settings whenever I close Gsynaptics or after about 10-20 seconds has passed.

Mainly, all I'm trying to do with it is use it for a simple way for me to turn my touchpad on and off since it's overly sensitive and causing problems. Does anyone know why gsynaptic changes may not be sticking?

Ubuntu :: Touchpad Stops Working After Pressing The Touchpad Toggle Button

May 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS. My laptop is an HP Pavilion TX1210AU (TX1000 series). After disabling the touchpad using the toggle button and reenabling it again, it stopped working. I tried restarting my laptop and the mouse worked again only up to the Login Screen. After logging in to my account, the mouse froze again. I tried making a new account and tried logging into it (I'm using it now) and it's now fixed. Does Ubuntu change any user settings everytime the touchpad toggle (on/off) button is switched? Maybe I could just reenable it myself.

The keyboard works straight away but the touch pad doesn't work at all not even the mouse buttons

I would really appreciate any advice at all, I have checked the output of: cat /proc/bus/input/devices

Ubuntu :: How To Turn Mouse Sensitivity Down

Apr 4, 2010

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:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Disable "dri2"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
Driver "nvidia"

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Mouse Sensitivity Too High

Aug 11, 2010

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).

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.
