Ubuntu :: Increasing Mouse Speed On Startup?

Mar 24, 2011

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:

#!bin/bash
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Increase Ping / Speed

Feb 25, 2010

Last week my ping was 45 this week its 80. I've checked it on three different computers, and reset my router. I called verizon (my subpar isp) they run a few test, say every things fine. I recheck my ping, its back to 45 but only last 5 mins after they check it, then it goes back to 80. I'm always having problems with them, but every time I call them the problems "just so happen" to go away while their helping me.

Anyway, my question is... Is there anyway for me to increase my ping/speed without upgrading my internet? I have 3.5 upload, .75 upload, and a Westell model 327w. I know this is a general question and not really linux related but I thought I would try this forum first since its always so helpful. I have googled this subject but I only find windows related stuff that pertains only to the programs running on the machine. They suggest things like "dont download when you want high ping" and "temporarily turn off seeding for your torrents" It is most important in windows for me though, I like to play games and a difference of 50 and 110 ping does make a difference. Of course, everything seems slower, like streaming movies and stuff.

Ubuntu :: Install On An Old PC To Increase Its Speed And Usability

Jan 5, 2011

I recently decided to install ubuntu on an old PC to increase its speed and usability. Prior to this I had windows XP running on it. I installed the newest version of ubuntu, which makes the whole thing running unbearable slow. Under windows xp it was running ok, my question therefore is: which version would you guys recommend that needs less ressources, but still has comparable functionality to the new version?

General :: Sounds Like Under 10% Of Speed Increase

May 16, 2011

I have an old AthlonXP-2600+ running at 2.078 Ghz which I was assured would do 2.6Ghz, but actually doesn't and 2.178 Ghz is what we settled on. I have 266mhz ram on a board with 333mhz FSB and we sorted that out also, and specified the ram speed. That sounds like under 10% of a speed increase, if any. But the previous kernel I built here took 55 minutes (time make -j4). The one I built after the mods (nearly same config) took 33 minutes. (make clean; time make -j4) 40%? I've clearly improved or fixed something.

bash-4.1$ sudo grep BogoMIPS /var/log/messages |tail May 15 14:37:32 genius kernel: Calibrating delay loop (skipped), value calculated using timer frequency.. 4193.78 BogoMIPS (lpj=2096890) & later.

General :: Increase Mouse Cursor Speed In Ubuntu?

Jun 29, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Using Multiple HD's To Increase Server Speed?

Jan 21, 2010

I am curious if it is possible to use multiple hard drives to increase server speed. I know I could run stripped drives or RAID0, but was wondering if there is any other way to do it within Linux. My default 9.10 Server install has 3 partitions as a default. Would splitting these on three drives make it any faster?

Ubuntu :: Increase Unity Launcher Scroll Speed?

May 28, 2011

Is there anyway to increase the speed of scrolling within the unity launcher? Like when you have more icons than that fit inside of your screen. I know you can just go to the scrunched up icon and hover it and it will appear, but is there a way to increase the scrolling speed when using a mouse wheel? It seems a little slow for my taste.

I think I seen a "bug report", for this, which really isn't a bug, but more a desired option to customize the unity launcher. Just wondering if this has been figured out, or even possible.

Nothing big, but just trying to tweak ubuntu a little more LOVE IT!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Speed Drops Periodically And Will Not Increase Without Reconnecting?

Jan 25, 2011

after maybe half an hour, the wireless download rate drops to about 110ks (and runs happily at up to 20x this until then). At that point, it will never pick back up above that rate unless i disconnect and reconnect. Once the problem occurs once, its like to reoccur about every 5 to 10 minutes until the machine has rebooted.

Ubuntu :: Increasing The Monitor Resolution?

Aug 14, 2011

I was playing around with the NVidia settings control panel today and I saw that its Resolution dropdown was giving me options for

1680*1050
1920*1080

My monitor supports up to 1440*900. When I selected one of the higher resolutions, it didn't look very sharp, and the text was somewhat fuzzy and lacked clarity. Was this rendering being done by the graphics card but 'compressed' by the monitor?

The status said 'switched to metamode'. I tried searching but found nothing - what exactly does MetaMode mean? I'm more interested in understanding what was happening, only experimenting with the higher resolutions. What monitor and resolution do you have?

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID 5 Failure While Increasing Size?

Sep 6, 2010

Based on the reading I've done over the past 48 hours I think I'm in serious trouble here with my RAID 5 array. I got another 1 TB drive and added to my other 3 to increase my space to 3 TB...no problem.

While the array was resyncing...it got to about 40%, I had a power failure. So I'm pretty sure it failed while it was growing the array...not the partition. Next time I booted mdadm didn't even detect the array. I fiddled around trying to get mdadm to recognize my array, but no luck.

I finally got desperate enough to just create the array again...I knew the settings of my and had seen some people have success with this method. When creating it, it asked me if I was sure because the disks appeared to belong to an array already, but I said yes. The problem is when I created it, it created a clean array and this is what I'm left with.

Code:
/dev/md0:
Version : 00.90
Creation Time : Sun Sep 5 20:01:08 2010
Raid Level : raid5
Array Size : 2930279808 (2794.53 GiB 3000.61 GB)

[Code]....

I tried looking for backup superblock locations using e2fsck and every other tool I could find, but nothing worked. I tried testdisk which says it found my partition on /dev/md0, so I let it create the partition. Now I have a /dev/md0p1, which won't let me mount it either. What's interesting is gparted reports /dev/md0p1 as the old partition size (1.82 TB)...the data has to still be there, right?
