Fedora :: How To Make Mouse Pointer Less Sensitive To Mouse Movements
Jul 9, 2010
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 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?
Biggest one that make game unplayable is mouse. Mouse isn't moving smooth it jumps around. I cannot shoot anything. So i asked for help, and everybody just say install windows. And where is fun in that. If people when ever run into problem with some software on linux just install windows. Linux would never go forward. I m not some great gamer, but i would like to be able to play this game. Probably somebody run into same problem. I sow that people talk about something like dis on WOW and wine but simptoms doesn't seem same to me.
There are pretty good graphical features on gnome. But I could not find a nice feature, allowing mouse pointer to turn-around the desktop area. I want the mouse pointer goes to left side of screen when it reaches right side of desktop and vice versa. Or goes to bottom of the desktop area when it reaches top of screen. It makes using mouse and moving around the desktop area using a touchpad easier.
Just installed OpenSuse 11.2 and I am having problems with my logitech laser mouse. I am getting erratic laser mouse movements when the mouse wakes up I get not only the movements but it opens files, dances around the screen opening things and has even jacked up my panels.
I'm running 12, not 11. I don't know why I had 11 in my head. Can this be moved BACK from EOL? If not, I'll start a new thread. Sorry. My wife and I have matching HP EliteBook 8730w "mobile workstations" (laptops that need a donkey to move them). We also have matching LG second screens. Unfortunately, we have matching mouse pointer issues too, as you might expect.
99% of the time we work away without issue. 1% of the time, Fedora suddenly stops showing the mouse pointer in the separate LG screen. The pointer is there, you can use it (if you can guess where the hell it is!) but you can't see it. Only a reboot seems to solve the problem.
It's worth noting xorg.conf is not being used. It's an nVidia card in these laptops and I tried the latest drivers from them - they totally wiped out the display, I mean total FAIL, unusable. Had to boot up in without GNOME, run level 3, to fix it. After much messing around, I think I used the FirstAidKit plugin for xserver to repair things. Since then there is no xorg.conf:
If I restore *any* xorg.conf file it all goes wrong again, so I'm guessing there are either some defaults at play or there's another system currently managing my display. Either way, restoring/editing xorg.conf won't help me with the current set-up.
I installed FC10 but can not see mouse pointer (it was so also during the installation process). Mouse is working, Crtl shows pointer's position, moving over sensitive areas activates them but no pointer can be seen. The Mouser Property Tool doesn't show the part for selecting pointer themes (as given in Help). FC9 on the same computer worked ok, FC10 on other computers work ok, too.
I have installed Fedora 10. During installation itselt the mouse pointer is invisible. After installation, I rebooted system. Still it remains invisible. I am new user of Fedora. My mother board is Mercury PVM7 and P IV processor 3.06 GHz
Not Fedora-specific, but I couldn't think of any other place to ask. So.
Is there a way to make the desktop "continuous" so that my mouse pointer would reappear on the other side of the desktop if I move it over the edge? I sometimes find it a little frustrating to have to go from one edge to the other on a multi-monitor setup, and there are a few other reasons why I would rather have it like that.
Running firefox in a SELinux sandbox - periodically the mouse refuses to leave the sandbox (i.e., gets stuck in the browser, refusing to traverse across the window border onto the desktop). This usually happens once in a while, though periodically once every 15 mins or so - no particular pattern, no pattern in the websites visited either.
The setup is as follows:
- Fedora 15 with a bare metal X install (TWM, desktop locked down ala a kiosk install - I will try a different wm to see if that makes any difference at some point)
- VPN (having been through a few VPN providers not all are equal, and this is a pretty good one, running OpenVPN at the mo. - I will try L2TP when I get round to it)
- Firewall locked down to the max.
- As far as reasonably can be done, no direct access to the machine - the install at least in theory is untainted
Does anyone know of a SELinux forum? Can't see anything myself or at least in the first instance.
I'm assuming this is a MITM problem - largely 'cos I have crime sitting on my (Internet) ass. Same problem with SL6 also, so not Fedora specific. I shall put the security spin into a VM and develop my network engineer skills at some point!
i have a minor problem with the wacom tablet CTH-461. the gestures and mouse sensitivity with the finger touch is too sensitive... i mean that the mouse is moving really fast and you have to be very careful when you are pinching / zooming with your fingers... and second question. where i have to submit this "bug" bcs the 11.04 is still alpha and i want the tablet to be in final release as much as possible supported.
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
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 installed Ubuntu 10.04 and when i log into the system my mouse pointer/cursor disappears and I have to leave the system idle for 5 minutes after that the system gets locked and when I unlock the system I get the mouse pointer/cursor back. How to resolve this I want to see the mouse pointer/cursor when I login to the system. Can anyone help me to fix this.
I just reinstalled openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4.5, and my mouse pointer keeps auto-clicking. It's weird because it is not even happening 100% of the time, just _most_ of the time. I am using a touchpad, and I have disabled tapping.
I had this exact same issue with Kubuntu 10.10 yesterday before I removed it. I am currently on Windows 7 and all seems well, so it is probably is a Linux software issue.
No matter what kernel I select to boot into, eventually I lose the mouse pointer visibility. If I move the mouse around, stuff does get highlighted, I just can't see the pointer as it moves. CTRL/ALT/BKSP does bring up a logout menu (doesn't kill X, tho), and I can tab thru it...time wasting, although it does come back from a restart with all the windows as before.
I'm running Gnome. Cpu is AMD Athelon 64 3800+ OS is 32 bit. I didn't normally have this problem before. Do I need to return to 11.0 ? Is this a Gnome problem or an X problem. I seem to remember that KDE4 had a utility that would grab the pointer from the ether and stick it back on the screen
I'm using 11.2 > Gnome When I (re)login to the desktop there is no mouse pointer, however the mouse is working. Hover shows emphasis and I can click once hovered. I have to go into Configure Display Settings on the Display icon in the panel and hit Apply. That restores the pointer itself. No changes, just Apply. The login screen has a mouse. Mouse Properties > (all tabs) are all default values. The mouse works perfectly other than that.
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.
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.
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 ?
