I have a HP Mini 311c that has an ALPS touchpad. Linux Mint detects it as a mouse and so when I try to increase the speed of the mouse, nothing actually happens. I've created a script which includes just the following code:
xset m 5 2
This is saves as startup-script.hl on my Desktop. I then go into Startup Applications and add the script in there. But when I reboot my Netbook the mouse is moving at its default slow speed. I've ensured the script file is allowed to execute (right click > properties > permissions) and have also tried copying it to the init.d folder with no luck.
One thing I have noticed though is that straight after I login to Mint the mouse cursor does move at the speed I want, but after a few seconds reverts back to the slow speed.
I have followed this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...lay+resolution And when I restart it goes back to having the edge of my window (scrollbar) cut off. I added the increase_resolution.sh to my startup menu but I guess I don't know the command to MAKE it start at startup. (That is what "command" means in the "Edit startup program" menu, correct?) If I go into usr/local/bin and click run it works, but if I can execute it automatically, that would be great.
Also, I have added an account(?) for my daughter and when she is finished and I try to log her out the display goes nuts and does not correct itself. I assume it has to do with this since when I restart the machine (and the script isn't running) the picture is fine again. Is there a conflict between the two accounts and this script? I'm sorry if this is not making sense, I know what I want to say, but don't have the lingo/jargon down.
Just upgraded to 10.04 (x64) and found that the mouse speed for X plane is much faster than for Y plane. Tried looking in KDE mouse settings but didn't find any setting to change that. Mouse was fine before upgrade.
P.S. the "mouse" is actually a touchpad in HP Pavillion dv7.
I'm using two monitors, they're virtually placed next to each other so the virtual screen resolution is (1024+1280) x 800px. Now my mouse speed on the x-axis is automatically set higher, which is good if you permanently switch between both monitors all the time. But I don't need it, so how do I turn it off? It's kinda annoying if you're used to your "normal" mouse speed.Y-axis speed is still fine. also, is there a way do display the gnome-do dock on the right handed monitor? it places itself always on the left monitor....I'm using Mint 8 which is Ubuntu 9.10 with gnome 2.28.1
I'm currently running Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP laptop with an external monitor attached. I've been having the same issue since 9.04 and just now figured I should ask about it.When I have dual monitors set up (extended desktop) the mouse speed in the X direction seems to double. ie. assume the mouse usually moves 1 pixel at a time, it now moves 2. It seems to be functioning as usual in the Y direction, which makes the motion really weird and hard to use. I'm using a Wacom tablet for the mouse, but the same happens with my laptops touch pad. Anyone else experience this/know how to fix it?
I know its possible because 2 days ago the "scroll speed" was perfect. The only thing that has changed is that I have used a different usb port for my mouse now, and I have installed a copy of windows 7 on my second HD. However, after all this, my mouse scroll speed on Ubuntu is unbearably too fast. Its almost half a page for every one "click" of the mouse scroll wheel.
I was wondering if it's possible to change how much my mouse wheel scrolls. For some reason it scrolls way more than is normal (not just in web browsers, but in every application). It works fine on Windows 7, but it seems to not work well with Linux distros.I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed, and I'm using a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 4000.
How do I increase the mouse speed in Ubuntu Linux? Running Gnome 2.30.0. I've already maxed out Pointer Speed Sensitivity in the Mouse Preferences control panel. I am not interested in increasing the Acceleration. Is there a config file I can edit to boost it past what the control panel allows?
I know that this mouse can track faster because it does in Windows.
I have scrolling speed problem on my mouse, however it s working sometimes when i restart OS i mean it s working slowly as it should. But it s random dont know whats wrong with sometimes it s scrolling so fast and thats killing me u know it s really so hard to use it when browse something on web-pages. Weird part is how it s working ok when i restart OS.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and I have a Logitech MX518 mouse. I see that the Logitech SetPoint software is only for Windows, but I am not able to get the exact mouse behavior that I want through the Mouse settings in Ubuntu.
I want acceleration disabled, so I put the slider all the way to the left for acceleration. I then move the slider for mouse sensitivity, but I didn't notice a change in cursor speed. How can I modify my mouse to not use acceleration but adjust the speed of the cursor? Is there a special app I can install for this?
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?
What can I do to speed up the start-up after login?
I am running OpenSuse 11.3 with Gnome on my laptop (Acer Travelmate 2490) and I need about two and a half minutes from login until the hard disk lamp 'settles down'. This is much longer than I have been used to expect from earlier OpenSus versions. Are there some default applications/processes I could ditch?
How may I slow down the mouse scroll speed in F10? When I use the scroll wheel, a mere fraction of a turn and I am zooming through a page. I already tried changing some settings in Firefox, per another posting on scroll speed. It did not seem to work.
The mouse has been working fine ever since we got Ubuntu 10.04, until I switched monitors. For some reason, after changing monitors from 4:3 to 16:9 and back, (changing the output res in the process), the mouse doesn't appear when starting up the computer. It still highlights things, and it will pop up completely when searching for something on Google Chrome, and a few other things. But for some reason, the mouse doesn't appear right away when starting up the computer. I'm not sure why this happened -- I'm new to Ubuntu, (used to Windows)
This is weird. When I start my computer, the cursor is frozen in place and the only way I have been able to get it moving is to do a hard restart. This has be a consistent problem for last few days. What's going on? How do I correct it?
When booting up my system today, it got until the login screen, but both keyboard and mouse were inactive. The login window had a triangle (as if to start a video) that I cannot remember having seen before. what is going on and how to get in? I am running Lucid Lynx and KDE.
Sometimes when I reboot, I go to log on only to find that the mouse won't move and the keyboard does nothing. Well, the mouse moves, it's not glued to the desk or anything. But it doesn't move the cursor. The first few times this happened, I found that it was a music player or other USB device plugged in that somehow created confusion or something. So if I unplugged them and booted up again, everything was fine. And by booting up again, I mean I have to hold down the power button and forcibly shut the thing off, since I obviously can't do it the nice way with no mouse or keyboard.
Anyway, it's been doing it now more often, even with nothing plugged into the front USB ports. But I have found that if I disconnect my external hard drive, it boots up fine again. But that's obnoxious, because that hard drive is online as much as the computer itself, because it's my main repository for files. So I have to unplug the USB from the back of it, hold the cable so it doesn't fall behind the desk, turn on the computer, and then log in one-handed while I hold the cable (because if I just plug it back in before the desktop shows, it doesn't mount properly).
And I know it's an Ubuntu thing rather than a general computer thing because the bios options work just fine. In fact, the little NumLock light is on until the moment that Ubuntu starts up and shows the login dialog.
Everything worked fine in Kubuntu 10.04 (64-bit). On the upgrade to 10.10 (64-bit) it takes about a minute until I can move the mouse after startup and the integrated memory card reader doesn't work (but the green LED which used to only come on when there was a card in there is now always on). This has been discussed twice before: here (closed and solved by unplugging cardreader which I do not want to do) and here (unsolved but closed as maverick no longer in beta) dmesg (note the errer -110) follows. Let me know if I can/should include any other logs/info!

Was running out of room on / and set in Yast to delete /tmp on startup. Also deleted /var/log and /var/tmp while logged in. Rebooted and now mouse and keyboard (both USB) not working. Keyboard works on grub menu. Also works now in XP. Tried reconnecting (sync & plug unplug) different usb ports and nothing. Gave it a few minutes on startup and still nothing. Plugged in a PS2 keyboard and the lights just blink after startup and it will not work either.
have a problem with an Acer Aspire one running linpus linux. I get a black screen with a white mouse pointer at startup. I don't know how this happened. I can interrupt the startup process with ^c and then see the following amongst other text :Loading x11 FronEnd module...Failed to laod x11 FrontEnd moduleFailed to launch SCIM
