Debian Hardware :: Disabling Scroll Wheel On Mousepad On HP Pavilion Laptop

Aug 28, 2014

I have a HP Pavilion Dv71245dx Laptop running Debian Wheezy, which has been alright so far except for the mouse wheel built into the right side of the touch mousepad. It's positioned in such a way that makes my thumb hit it all the time by accident while typing, and it's been a total nightmare. I would just like to disable the scroll wheel feature on this mousepad entirely, but I would like to do so in such a way that I can still use the scroll wheel on my USB mouse whenever I have that plugged in.

General :: Virtual Scroll Wheel For Laptop Touchpad Not Working On Arch?

Jan 10, 2010

I believe it is PS/2 but I am unsure. There isn't an option in the GNOME interface to edit this, either. Am I missing some sort of GNOME utility, or what?

Ubuntu :: Mousepad Scroll Option Doesn't Work?

Jun 13, 2011

Well a few days ago I installed Ubuntu for the first time and I'm really enjoying it but there is one thing putting me off and making me want to go back to Windows regularly - the fact my mousepad scroll option doesn't work, something I require quite regularly.

I have googled things about fixes and I'm a beginner, so some of the things were too advanced for me and others didn't work. with this so I can have the best experience I can with the operating system.

I have been facing this inconvenience since the first days of my life in Ubuntu, but never thought of any solution to it.

Ubuntu :: Get Tilt To Work On Scroll Wheel?

Jan 28, 2010

I am using a Logitech Wave wireless mouse (no keyboard, since I'm on a notebook), and I am trying to get the tilt to work on my scroll wheel. It is being recognized as simply Left/Right keypresses, e.g. Alt-[Left Tilt] backs up a page in Firefox. Does anyone know how I can remap that to something else? In my case, Alt-Tab and Alt-Shift-Tab.

Ubuntu :: Configure PS/2 Scroll Wheel Mouse?

Jul 7, 2010

When I originally installed 10.04 on a new machine, I was using a temporary PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse. The mouse was a simple two-button mouse. This worked fine. Now, I have moved my Microsoft PS/2 scroll wheel mouse from my previous computer to the new machine, but the scroll wheel does not work. How do I make it work?

I had hoped that Ubuntu would detect my different (new) hardware and configure it for me, but it did not. Googling leads me to xinput, but I can't figure out what to do with that and it indicates it is for 'on the fly' configuration. I want it to be permanently configured. Is there some way to invoke the installation tool again to reinstall the mouse?

Ubuntu :: Change The Mouse Scroll Wheel Speed?

Feb 27, 2011

After an amazing ordeal with drivers, terminals, and command-line codes, I finally found an ethernet cable that plugged in correctly, installed the drivers, and now I have wireless! Yahoo!

Now, about another problem...

The mouse scroll wheel speed/line skipping is way too fast. It skips half the page in one scroll! Is there a menu (like Windows) that lets you customize this?

In technical terms, it's a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 with BlueTrack technology.

Fedora :: Xorg's CPU Usage Spikes When Using Scroll Wheel / Sort It?

Jan 29, 2010

When I "middle click" the scroll wheel to enable smooth scrolling in Firefox, the entire machine basically locks up until it scrolls to the bottom of the page. On a long web page, this can take almost a full minute as it scrolls very slowly.

Also, just using the scroll wheel to scroll normally. If I scroll up then back down quickly, it takes quite some time, and the CPU usage spikes under those conditions too.

As a test, I went ahead and loaded Top in a terminal window, set side-by-side with my browser. Once I start the smooth scrolling, I can't stop it. It has to get to the bottom of the web page to quit. Xorg's CPU usage spikes during that time and I can hear the fans starting to speed up.

I just quickly made a long text document in Gedit and tried scrolling through it. Same thing. So it's not limited to any one application.

Anyone experiencing anything like this? It started happening after my last major update.

I'm using Fedora 12 with Gnome.

Fedora Hardware :: Logitech Marble Mouse - No Scroll Wheel

Sep 6, 2010

I Have Fedora 12 and use the Logitech Marble mouse.

This mouse has no scroll wheel, instead it has two buttons one to scroll up and another to scroll down.

Instead of the usual scrolling, the buttons are acting as if I had clicked the back or forward buttons on the browser.

How can I map the buttons to function as intended?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Configure Mouse Wheel Scroll Lines?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm installed 64-bit openSUSE 11.4 with GNOME. I have a DELL mouse with middle wheel. How do I configure the lines the wheel scrolls? By default it is about 1-2 lines. I need more.

I searched many places. Seems only KDE supports this settings. I also digged up VertScrollDelta in xorg.conf, but the latter is not used currently (not exists in /etc/X11/).

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Wheel Scroll & Arrow Display?

Nov 20, 2010

Hi, very new to opensuse. I have 64bit 11.3 and its been working very well. My problem is that in Firefox: I have Firefox 3.6.12 when i scroll down using the mouse scroll wheel (not up?) most of the time, but not all the time i get horizontal lines instead of the "real picture". This also happens when i use my keyboard's down arrow key.

When i go slower it seems to happen less often. Also if i click off the page and back on again the display is fine. Is this problem my graphics card? Firefox? or my mouse/keyboard?

Ubuntu :: Using Scroll Wheel To Move Between Slides Previewing Thumbs

May 9, 2010

I found the following question in the OpenOffice forum (unsolved) and was wondering if any of you know the solution. I so badly want it solved.


Is there a way to enable scrolling to move onto the next slide? i.e. scrolling down or up w/ mouse button only moves the canvas up/down rather than proceed to the next slide (which requires a Page Up/Dn). Additionally, is there a view similar to ppt that the left side of the screen has thumbnails which u can scroll up and down w/ ur mouse wheel or the up/dn arrow?

General :: Sound Applet Regulating Volume On Mouse Wheel Scroll

Something wrong happened with my sound applet. It regulates my sound volume on each mouse wheel scrolling, even if applet is not active. What's the reason for this? Recently I didn't make any changes in systems configuration. Tried to create an empty user folder and login there - problem still exists, so it is not a wrong configuration in users folder... what could it be?

Debian Hardware :: Disabling Laptop Lid-close Action

Dec 17, 2011

Dell Latitude C610 laptop with Debian Squeeze.I am using the computer as a print and file server, accessing it with ssh, so I don't need the display (which is busted anyway). I want to close the lid without having the computer suspend. Could not find a way to make it happen with gnome-power-preferences or the BIOS settings. There is a script, /etc/acpi/, that runs when the laptop lid switch changes. Part of the script is shown here:

Code: Select allgrep -q closed /proc/acpi/button/lid/*/state # this is a file of 1 line like "state:   open" or presumably "state:   closed"
 if [ $? = 0 ]                               # The brackets evaluate to True when the lid is closed.
    if [ x$LID_SLEEP = xtrue ]; then
        [ -x /etc/acpi/ ] && /etc/acpi/ # i.e., if this file exists, then run it.
... there's more ...
The stuff that gets executed after the if [ #$ = 0 ] is the stuff that suspends the computer. So I just replaced the brackets with something that is certain to be false, so it will never happen:

Code: Select allif [ 1 = 2 ]
I admit this is FAR from an elegant solution, but it seems to work and it doesn't fubar the system.

Fedora :: F12 On HP Pavilion Laptop

Mar 21, 2010

Atlast after a long time thinking and concerns I made it ... installed F12 on HP Pavilion using a LIVE CD ... I got a AMD turion 64 X2 with a NVIDIA graphics card (7200M this is what it says in VISTA) I am more than satisfied with F12 on my HP ... this is first time I am using Linux on LAPTOP and my previous usage is purely on desktops and have some good touch with F9 and still continuing with it. I have few doubts At present I guess I am using Nouveau drivers for my Nvidia graphics card. But I hear from communities people complaining of HIGH TEMPERATURES as open source drivers for NVIDIA are not good enough (NVIDIA doesnt release much info on them). So should I change my NVIDIA drivers to proprietary one? Any tips or gnome settings on LAPTOPS to best utilize all the resources without burning out things?

Ubuntu :: HP Pavilion Laptop Freezing After Login

Dec 26, 2010

My HP Pavilion laptop (3GB RAM, 1.8GHz, Intel Core2 Duo, Integrated graphics) has been freezing almost every single time I log in. This used to happen occasionally. Recently I had to clear my whole drive and reinstall Ubuntu (now using maverick) because it stopped working. Now when I log in and it freezes the only thing I can do is a hard reboot. I've probably done this way too many times by now and it can't be good for the computer.

To get around this I do the following: Safe mode works perfectly fine and I use it to disable compiz. Then I log back out and log in to the normal desktop and it works fine. Then I re-enable compiz and everything is fine. So compiz itself seems to not be the problem? Maybe it has something to do with how it is being called right after log in?I could try to live without compiz or just disable it every time I log out but that's a hassle.
