Ubuntu :: Installed 10.04 - When Pitch/roll The Joysticks The Mouse Cursor Also Moves

May 8, 2010

So right after I installed 10.04 there seems to be some short of mouse/joystick mess. What I mean is that 2 types of joysticks (Saitek x52 and CH Products Yoke) seems to control the mouse as well! So when I pitch/roll the joysticks the mouse cursor also moves. When I move the middle lever of the CH products yoke, the mouse also moves horizontally. Also it is almost impossible to work with the scroll bars of windows as joysticks interacts with them via the cursor and issues botton clikcs scrolling the bars to the end! This looks to be a new issue on 10.04 as 9.10 had no such issue.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor Moves But Won't Click Anything - Important Files Unsaved

Jun 24, 2011

i had a bunch of documents opened and i saved one txt file. I then clicked it and dragged it to the recycle bin slowly but didnt release the button. Then the cursor just stayed like that. The cursor changed image while i was dragging it. It now remains as that image for the cursor. I can move it around but cannot click anything. If i press Alt Tab to switch to another window, it just highlights that file. I cant move about on the desktop either.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: My Xbox 360 Controller Controls The Mouse - The Cursor Moves All Around The Screen?

May 27, 2009

I am using a wireless Xbox 360 controller with openSUSE 11.1. I use it for some emulators and all buttons work fine. There is however an annoying problem, the Xbox controller left joystick controls the cursor and digital pad acts as mouse buttons. So while I play, the cursor moves all around the screen and bad things could happen. Why this behavior? In xorg.conf there seems to be only just 1 mouse. And if I go in Joystick via YaST, there is only a menu to select which joystick I have. But my wireless controller has been automatically detected, I didn't setup anything. Is there a config file that I can modify to stop controlling the mouse with my gamepad?

Fedora :: Compiz Mouse Cursor Bug Made Worse With Recent Updates?

Feb 7, 2011

Compiz seems to have had a bug where, upon using Compiz as the window manager, the mouse cursor would refuse to properly change after selecting a new theme. The workaround (altering the index.theme in/usr/share/icons/default) used to be a way around the issue... that is, until the latest Nautilus updates. Now even that won't let the cursor change, and I'm stuck with the issue of a Bluecurve cursor inside applications, but the default dmz-aa cursor on the desktop. Has anyone else found a way around this bug?

CentOS 5 :: KDE Keyboard / Mouse Freeze / Buggy When Alt-tab'ing / Switching Between Windows

Jun 13, 2010

I'm a long time user of CentOS 5 w/KDE 3.5. I have always had this problem to various degrees no matter what installation of CentOS 5 I'm currently on. This same hardware does not exhibit the same symptoms with another OS.The problem is I regularly have many konsole instances open. I alt-tab between them frequently. Inevitably a random alt-tab will freeze the keyboard and the mouse won't be able to click anything although I can move the mouse cursor around. I can't type anything. It seems to have some sort of timeout and it always come back to responsiveness.

I alleviated this problem (I think) by switching keyboards, installing the nvidia driver instead of the nv driver, shutting down all non-essential services.I have seen these symptoms on every system I have installed CentOS 5 where KDE 3.5 was also installed. Very different hardware setups each time.Has anyone else run into similar symptoms?I'm surprised that it's just CentOS 5 w/KDE 3.5 that exhibits this behaviour on the same hardware where other operating systems (gentoo, suse, etc.) did not exhibit these symptoms.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Moves Down All By Itself?

Sep 11, 2010

when I sat down at the computer, the mouse cursor continually moves down at a constant rate. It jumps a certain distance regularly until it reaches the bottom of the screen. The mouse works generally. It moves around as I move the mouse,but there is the constant moving down, so it's pretty much unusable.I clicked all the mouse buttons, restarted the mouse.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE With 3d Driver - Glitches On Window Decorations When Pass The Mouse Cursor From Windows Topbars

Aug 21, 2011

I installed today debian wheezy from OpenSUSE system via bootstrap. I have some strange behaviour with kde. At first kde worked fine and the only problem was that if I tried to logout from kde session, instead of kdm shows up, a black screen appear with mouse cursor working. I first ignore this error(because I had some problems with audio) and just reboot from vt console or sometimes restart kdm service. After I solved the audio problem I've searched to find some solution about kdm black screen problem. I found on kde forums a solution about terminate xserver option on kdmrc file, which didn't work in my case, but create another problem.

The problem is that now when I pass the mouse cursor from windows topbars I have glitches on window decorations. So I disable the above option again, reboot but the graphics problems was still there. I tried to uncheck vsync from desktom effects and the resault was all desktop effects to be disabled. Now I cannot re-enable desktop effects any more. But now I can logout and relogin. 3D works fine(glxgears works) but I cannot enable desktop effects. And I think that some effects work, because I see some smooth movements and fade outs when I pass the mouse cursor on kmenu items. My card is ATI radeon HD 4650, and I have the xorg-video-ati driver installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Login Screen Freeze - Mouse Still Moves But Can't Do Anything

Mar 23, 2010

Little background info: I have a computer where the hdd crashed. Bought a new hdd tonight and installed it. As the computer had no operating system at this point I put in a copy of the live cd and begin to install Ubuntu 9.10(32 bit)...everything went smooth with the install (at least I think). My problem is that when I get to the login screen, I click on my user name to type in my password but as soon as I click on either my user name or guest it basically freezes...Mouse still moves but can't do anything with login or the options on the bottom right of the screen...

Right when it freezes the pixels under the login box mess up, looks like some type of graphics problem?? I'm not sure, but I can't be the first person with this problem Also after it "freezes" I can't utilize the ctl+alt+f1 command either

I first noticed this problem when trying to play a first person shooter game. If I hold a key down such as "w" the mouse glitches and moves incredibly erratically when I try to look around.

General :: Computer Freezes For 2+ Seconds But Mouse Still Moves / What To Do?

Dec 10, 2010

I have this problem on my workstation. The computer would effectively freeze for 2-5 seconds for no apparent reason, then continue as normal. While frozen the mouse would still be movable, but only on one of screens in my multi-screen setup. What can be the likely cause.

System:

CPU: i7-920
Memory: 12G of Patriot DDR3, 6 modules
OS: SLED 11, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop, using Gnome
Main board: Asus P6T
Video: two Nvidia 9500GT connected to three displays

I am using memory at recommended settings of 8-8-8-1333. It has an XMP profile. Th CPU is a bit overclocked to 3.3 GHz, but my cooling more than allows for it. I ran the computer with all overclocks off and lower memory speed but the issue was still there.

Hardware :: Mouse Pointer No Longer Moves After Attempted Install Of Bluetooth?

Jul 21, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad. While testing an install of Bluetooth drivers I booted my computer into recovery mode so I could find out if Bluetooth worked before networking was installed. The system reconfigured the graphics to low VGA which disabled the mouse. I rebooted (normal startup) uninstalled the bluetooth drivers, but my mouse still won't work. The mouse pointer appears in the middle of the computer screen, and stays there.Enabling mouse keys support enables me to move the mouse by holding the Function key and pressing numpad characters,t this is only a temporary solution.

General :: Compiz Stops Updating Windows On A Multi-head System - Keyboard And Mouse Still Alive?

Dec 8, 2010

I am running Fedora F14 on an Intel I3 cpu w/4Gb memory and plenty of disk. I have two displays connected to the Gigabyte Motherboard, one of the HDMI connector, and one on a DVI connector. I run Gnome. When Compiz is enabled things work fine for a while, meaning hours or days. Then the displays will "freeze" to the point where the clock stops updating. The system itself is still running programs, services, and the mouse and keyboard work. The mouse cursor will move around, but nothing can be clicked upon. If a terminal was the open window, typing on the keyboard does not do anything, nor does ctrl-backspace or whatever it is to terminate X windows. The keyboard does allow me to press ctrl-alt-F2 to switch to one of the base consoles. Once there I can type to my hearts content. I can kill off my logged in Gnome session through the console, and I can shutdown the system in a controlled manner.

It is as if all of the windows stop updating. For example, I play music through Amarok. An hour after I stop using the system but letting the music play the screens will do their lockup. The clock will stop, and Amarok will stop updating which song it is playing. It continues to play each song in the playlist, but the Amarok window shows what was playing at the time that the clock stopped. I've also had this happen to me while using Yumex, where it would stop updating the screen while installing programs, but the programs do get installed. With Compiz off I don't have this problem.

The version of Compiz I am using is currently 0.8.6-3. It is running on Gnome 2.32.0-2, with a Linux kernel of 2.6.35.9-64. It has happened with earlier versions of these programs. I am using the graphics processing the Intel i3 chip to the motherboard connectors. The freeze generally happens at some random time while I am not actively using the system. It has happened to me while doing simple things like programming through an IDE. The really strange thing to me is that the cursor will move around on the screen after everything else stops updating.

OpenSUSE :: After Applying The Latest Wine Update Mouse Cursor In Wine Windows Is Now Purple/magenta/pink

I've looked through the various config files in ~home and /usr/share/wine, and can't find any parameter that might even remotely address this.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Moves To The Left, Leaves Black Band... But Mouse Is Working On Absolute Places?

I work on OpenSuse 11.3 (64bit), on the latest kde.I work on an extended 1680x1050 screen on the left of my laptop screen (1280x800). I set this with Kxrandr and it worked great,a while... Now, it shows a black band on the right side of my laptop screen. I can live with that. But the mouse does not recalculate for this difference, so that I need to click 1 inch to the right of where I want to click.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube Disables Vertical Viewport Switching

May 13, 2010

I have sixteen workspacess arranged in a 4x4 square. When the Compiz desktop cube is enabled, I can only switch between four of them on a row. All keys that would otherwise allow me to switch up and down between rows are disabled, even the ones I set outside of Compiz.

What is worst is that even the Window switchers are unable to change the current row I am on. If I use the Ring, Shift or Static switchers' "All Workspaces" modes, I can see the windows on all sixteen workspaces - but trying to switch to a window that is above or below the row I am currently on will only rotate around to the correct workspace's column, but not actually bring up the workspace the window is on. To navigate between all workspaces, I have to use the "Expose" feature.

Is there any way I can have a cube for horizontal navigation, but keep ordinary vertical navigation?

Ubuntu :: X-Windows: Pointer Moves Faster Horizontally Than Vertically?

Feb 7, 2011

I've set up the Apple Magic Trackpad with my dual-scren Ubuntu system, the screens of which give me combined screen resolution 3360x1050. It works basically, however the coordinate ranges are messed up, as follows.Moving my finger the bottom of the trackpad to the top, my pointer moves from bottom of display to top.However the same is true horizontally: From the left side of the trackpad to the right, the pointer moves from the left of the monitor A to the right of monitor B.Thus the speed horizontally is 3 times what it is vertically.How can I fix this? Even if I remove one monitor (no big deal) the pointer will still move 50% faster horizontally

CC is now complete (didn't have access to the internet for 3 days so I couldn't upload it) but its working fine. Tested it out with an ISO and it works perfect. Rename to .deb and install it. Even though it says 11.04 - it works on any system with a problematic version of compiz. It is also harmless on a system without compiz although it does depend on it. cc-11.04.deb.zip

Slackware :: Compiz-fusion Window Focus Not Properly Switching?

I'm hoping that this is a stupid question with a very simple answer that I just can't find.I've been playing around with compiz-fusion on -current64. When I have two windows open, if I close the top, active window, I would expect that the next window in the stack would receive the focus. However, it does not. I have to alt-tab to it or click it with the mouse.

Fedora :: Make Compiz Fusion Not To Mess With Cursor Theme?

Jun 12, 2010

I have official Compiz Fusion running on my Fedora 13 64-bit. I also installed some custom cursor themes and I'm seeing some strange behaviour. When mouse is on my Desktop the custom cursor theme is replaced by the default one. When I launch Firefox, for example, and move cursor inside Firefox window, then my custom cursor is being shown. Also, if I go to resize some window the custom "resize cursor" is being shown, or if system is processing something then custom hourglass cursor is shown again.

Basically while on Desktop or Gnome panels the custom cursor is being replaced by the default Fedora cursor.
This only happens when I choose Compiz as my window manager. With metacity my custom cursor theme is behaving properly. Is it possible to make Compiz Fusion not to mess with my cursor theme? Or maybe it is a Compiz bug?

Ok, this indeed is a bug, but I'm not sure if it's a Gnome or Compiz bug. Here is a fix (a bad one for now) which might save someone time. The credit for this does not belong to me, I got it form this link. So, here it goes:

1. Install gconf-editor by running "yum -y install gconf-editor"
2. Change your windows manager to metacity temporarily
3. Change your cursor theme to the desired custom one
4. Run gconf-editor and go to "desktop->gnome->peripherals->mouse" and remember the value of "cursor theme" option this gconf-editor branch.
5. Create directory with name "default" in "/home/yourUserName/.icons/" directory.
6. Inside newly created "default" directory create file with name "index.theme" with the following content:

Code:
[Icon Theme]
Name = <anything you want>
Comment = <anything you want>
Example = <anything you want>
Inherits = <THEME NAME YOU FOUND IN STEP 4>

7. After saving the file re-enable Compiz as your window manager and logout/login to your account. The problem with this fix is that you will have to modify "index.theme" file every time you will want to change your icon theme, but it works nevertheless.
