I have run powertop to see if I can streamline my system but have one problem, the mouse now seems to go into a sleep state if I don't use it for a few seconds. this is VERY annoying and I have to press the mouse button every time to get it to work again. anyone know how I can restore this back to how it was?
I just installed Kubuntu on my machine, but on returning to gde I still have the oxy-white pointer from kde. I went to preferences>appearance>themes>customize>pointer, and changed it back to DMZ White, yet the pointer still looks like oxy-white. I tried it with all of the different pointer options, but none of them will override oxy-white.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for about three months now (I am a total greenhorn) . A few hours ago, I decided to add the KDE 4.4 desktop environment. I followed the procedure on this link. It was all in GUI, no terminal commands required. [URL]
Installed KDE and everything is fine except two problems.
1. The KDE mouse pointer has become default in GNOME and I just can't change it. Tried everything, changing theme, customising theme and even downloaded the "mouse pointer" app from Software Centre. Nothing works.
2. I am not able to upgrade anything using Kpackagekit. It keeps telling me I don't have authorisation, without asking for my password.
I installed Suse 11.2 recently, and i have my laptop hooked up to a HD monitor. When i choose the HD monitor, if the resolution is low, lets say 1280x800, same as my laptop, its fine. I see the mouse pointer.
But as soon as i change the resolution to 1920x1080, the pointer disappears. Mouse functionality works allright. Right click/left click works fine, and i can see the buttons getting highlighted on mouse-ever. But the pointer is gone.
Fresh install of 32-bit 11.3 on my father's computer.He needs me to enlarge the mouse pointer and/or make it a different color. I changed it in the settings/themes thing like you are supposed to, but it appears to only take effect in Mozilla.needs the larger mouse pointer for the entire system. Evolution appears to completely ignore the mouse theme settings.
I was using GDE in my ubuntu system. But yesterday i did some thing so my ubuntu system has changed as debian. My login screen changed and i cant access "system->administration->Login window" when i do this i am getting this error message "GDM (GNOME Display Manager) is not running. You might be using a different display manager, such as KDM (KDE Display Manager), CDE login (dtlogin), or xdm. If you wish to use this feature, then your system will need to be configured to use GDM instead." How to come back to my normal original ubuntu with GNOME.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP Pavilion a320n computer with a ps2 mouse and the mouse pointer points with the bottom of the mouse and not the upper tip of the point. It does the same thing with Ubuntu 10.04.1. In Windows 7 and XP the mouse is normal. I don't know how I could adjust it or is this just a bug in the OS?
I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.
From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?
I'm trying to make my mouse invisible permanently ,i tried to make a custom mouse cursor with lot of tutorials ,but it did not worked for me ,i tried to delete completely but i can not find how , to disable completely Mouse Cursor on X11 that would be great (not using unclutter)
i want to change the size of mouse pointer i use right click on the desktop then change desktop background then choose Themes --> customize then i draw from small to large and the pointer get large only in windows like firefox but when i get the pointer on desktop.

I used UBUNTU 9.10 with no problem on 3 of my computers. I tried to use UBUNTU 11.04 and with one of my old laptops I face a problem with the mouse pointer. I can not see the mouse pointer. The mouse seems to work, but since I can not see the mouse pointer, its impossible to upgrade to UBUNTU 11.04 the same problem with UBUNTU 10,04 but no problem with UBUNTU 9.10.(My laptop is Fujitsu Siemens Amilo)
i have many mouse pointers in the .ico also .ani and .cur format from my old windows days SEE image attached would also like to make new ones and really want to turn them into a format which works on ubuntu since the choice of pointers is only 6 i found a way to install X11 cursors from gnome-look.org download then save to .icons in the hidden part (control H) of my home folder then go system/preference/appearance/customize/pointers
but even then you have to install a whole lot of files to change one pointer and i see no way of making/installing my own is there a more straightforward way? ubuntu/linux are about freedom and here i am at the moment very restricted
When booting up eb4 distro (eebuntu)mouse pointer although active during start-up disappears when gnome is started for 5-10 minutes, sometimes longer. Gnome failsafe it will appear but I can not identify the fault.
I am using Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1525. I haven't have been having consistent internet connection, hence haven't updated for much of the time. Yesterday I tried to update the Firefox browser from 3.6 to 4 and ran
sudo apt-get install firefox
It told a amount of around 57 packages would be updated in the process. After the installation I shutdown and went to sleep.The system now boots to purple screen ubuntu dot loading and then to black screen with the mouse pointer in the centre. Then nothing happens. I searched in the forums and tried to go to recovery mode and ran dkpg, then failsafeX, but failsafeX cannot detect my input devices, Hence I can't do anything.
At links the mouse pointer disappears within Internet Explorer 6.0. I just updated to the latest version of ubuntu which run like a charm. This problem however is annoying.I can press Ctrl to see the pointer but the fact is it should never disappear.
I do have problems with the graphics (Intel 4500) which sometimes at reproducable cases stops responding. (When trying to update graphically and having to answer a question in a child window to the main window). Is this problem a wine setting or something with x11 or compiz or ?
I have an issue with a bluetooth mouse. The mouse connects with the pc normally, and the bluetooth manager reports that the bluetooth device sends data. However, the mouse does not move the pointer, or seems to do any kind of effect on the pc.
I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my wife's old notebook, a Sony Vaio PCG-FX705, by wiping the HDD (i.e. no more Windows ). The problem is that there's some weird display error that reminds of a TFT with pixel errors, although that's no the cause. I got a screenshot of it here (made with a digicam), and here is a close-up of it.
One thing I've noticed is that this error starts at the mouse pointer's tip and goes right when the computer is booted. Also, when using Blank Screen as screensaver, the error disappears once the screen went blank until I press a key or move the mouse, at which point the error will re-appear at the mouse pointer's current location. The only way I found so far to temporarily fix this problem is to change display resolution. It doesn't matter which resolution I use, all that matters is that I change it.
Just a short while ago my mouse pointer froze randomly. I figured it was just the mouse so I disconnected and reconnected it, still nothing. Restarted computer and it worked for a while, then froze again. The mouse is wireless, but it doesn't seem to be anything to do with the mouse's hardware. The laser on the mouse and LED indicator on the sensor are both still flashing away while it's stuck. I then restarted again and tried an old wired laser mouse, which followed suit and worked for a few minutes, then froze mid-screen. This time I left it in, and it's been stuck for a good ~15 minutes so far. Using Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Mice are just generic wireless and wired lasers of Microsoft and Logitech, respectively.
I've been using Mint9 on my Laptop from some time, so far so good. However one problem troubling me from some time, is whenever I lock the screen and then unlock it, the mouse pointer/curser gets locked for an indefinite time. Then there lefts no option for me except a forceful shutdown/reboot.
In fact, for the synaptic touch-pad that my laptop has, I always have to press fn key + f8 twice to unlock the mouse pointer at every start up but even the same trick doesn't work in my above mentioned problem.
