Fedora :: Slowing Down My Mouse?

Mar 26, 2010

I have got my Fedora12 setup working just beautifully... except the mouse!

A few months ago I invested in a very nice, expensive high performance mouse with very high resolution tracking. In Fedora 12 it is just too fast for me though, and I'm already well on the way to Carpel tunnel syndrome..

I have turned the sensitivity and acceleration down as far as they go but it is still too fast. The old ways of adjusting xorg parameters are, I understand it, now null and void due to the hotplugging HAL framework.

How to turn the speed of the mouse down on Fedora if the control panel doesnt turn it down enough.

General :: Slowing Down Fan In MSI MS-7418?

Sep 5, 2010

This little Atom-based unit works fine with Linux, but its fan is running at full-speed all the time.So I figured maybe lm_sensors could ajust its speed dynamically, but "sensors", "fancontrol", and "pwmconfig" all fail to work, even though the modules required for this motherboard are up and running:

Code: # dpkg -L lm-sensors

Fedora Hardware :: Mouse Module Not Detected Without Installing Mouse With Xorg1.7.3?

Sep 27, 2010

I have custom built Linux kernel (2.6.31) and also xorg. xorg is using xserver 1.7.3 . I have an application which simulates the mouse and sends mouse move events. When I switch the device on, the system boots and Xorg comes up, I can see X cursor on the system. When I start sending mouse move events from the application, the cursor do not move. If I attach mouse to the device and then move the mouse, from this point onwards the mouse events get detected from the simulation application. I have checked the dmesg log as follows

kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3 FS on hdb4, internal journal
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with writeback data mode.

Fedora Hardware :: Mouse Middle Button Mouse Paste No Longer Works In FC14?

Jan 4, 2011

I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.

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?

General :: Name Resolution Slowing Down Authentication?

Feb 23, 2010

As mentioned in another of my recent posts, I have set up a small network for my job, in which I am utilizing 4 Servers running Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope Gnome GUI and Ubuntu Server running underneath (yes I need a GUI for what I am doing). However, I am having a problem when bringing Ubuntu out of "locked" state, and any time that I am required to authenticate (i.e. sudo bash). After I type in my password, everything hangs for a good 3+ minutes.

To test this, I disconnected the Ubuntu Servers from the network, and I tried to authenticate again. With the server off the network, authentication did not hang, and the GUI came up in seconds. Also, I checked my syslog and memory utilization and both are well within acceptable range that they would not be causing sluggish performance.

With all of this said, I believe that there is some kind of resolution going on when trying to authenticate while the servers are connected to the network (i.e. Kind of like how doing a traceroute in a cmd prompt in Windows without the "-d" takes forever because of name resolution checking).I should also mention that my network DOES NOT have an internet connection by design.

Ubuntu Networking :: Why Does Wireless Speed Keep Slowing

May 13, 2010

I recently got karoo broadband installed, the speed is normally 8mbps but the longer I am connected to my router the slower it gets, I have to disconnect and reconnect to the router to get back to full speed, is this due to a bad wireless driver or do I need new drivers or a better router.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-settings-daemon Crashing / Slowing Down

Nov 27, 2010

about every second time when I start up my Ubuntu 10.4, my hard drive starts to work heavily. While it's doing so I see in the system monitor that the gnome-settings-daemon has the status 'uninterruptible'. After about 3 minutes the hard drive calms down and the status of gnome-settings-daemon switches to 'sleeping'. so from that I guess the heavy working of the hard drive is somehow related to that process. Sometimes gnome-settings-daemon seems to crash completely so that my theme is gone.

So is there a solution to that? because it's annoying that it slows down the system for about 3 minutes after start up. On the net I've found some old threads from 2004 and 2006 which describe crashing of gnome-settings-daemon. But there didn't seem to be a solution.

Ubuntu :: Dbus Daemon, Loads Of Activity (slowing Down Machine)?

Mar 24, 2010

when calling 'top' dbus is having load of activity ('dbus-monitor --session') outputs also a lot of action (see attachement). this has effect that my machine is slowing down and normal work takes ages.I have no clue where the activity is coming from. I also had a look at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...or/+bug/441828. But there are no unnormal devices plugged in... (just keyboard + cordless mouse).when starting the machine the cpu load is ~9%. After a while (after 1 day) it goes up to 70-80%. the started applications do not change during that time. so i guess somewhere there is a leak.

Ubuntu Networking :: Rt2870sta Driver - Transfers Slowing And Stopping Regularly

Jul 28, 2011

I have a tenda wireless adaptor running on 11.04 natty. The USB id is: 148F 3070

Using the already installed drivers rt2800usb it can connect to all 13 channels but is very flaky, transfers slowing and stopping regularly. The rt2870sta driver is a lot more stable, but it will only connect to channels 1-11, but I need to use channel 13 due to massive wifi congestion on other channels...

I've tried iwpriv but it says there are no ioctls for the device.

Is there any way to get the installed driver rt2870sta to scan and connect to channel 13?

I've also tried to install the latest drivers from the ralink website: rt2870sta says it can see all 14 channels, but fails to scan. I also tried rt3070 driver but I cannot insmod as there are errors...

Hardware :: Know If Hardware Is SLOWING Down Computer?

Oct 14, 2010

I bought a new computer a few months ago. AMD Quad Core 3.0 GHz, 4 Gig Ram, 1 Gig Video card. All was working fine with Ubuntu 10.04. Then I installed a PCI Firewire card from my old computer because I needed to make some videos from my DV video camera. My computer worked and everything seemed to be fine. The firewire card worked, and I could do everything as per usual. Except for watching HD Videos. After capturing my video from my cam corder I un-installed the PCI FireWire card, and I can now watch HD Video again. This is the error I got when watching a HD Video with the PCI Firewire card installed. I launched vlc from a terminal.


My question is - how would a person know that the PCI card was slowing down the computer if they hadn't experienced the computer before installing the PCI card. One of the reasons I upgraded to a faster computer was to watch HD Video. Now I am wondering if it was the PCI card that was slowing down my old computer. Pentium-4 single core 2.8 GHz, 256 MB Grfx card. Is there diagnostic software for Ubuntu/Linux for this type of thing.

Fedora :: Fedora 11+KDE - Login Screen Not Responding To Keyboard And Mouse After Update?

Nov 10, 2009

It's two days now I'm in deep troubles after my last "yum update". The system boots as usual, the graphical login pops up the normal way but no input is handled by either the internal keyboard (the system is a laptop), the mouse pad, the external USB mouse and keyboard.

The hardware itself seems to be working as I can pop up the BIOS menus and even edit the GRUB booting line. But, after GRUB there's no possible input. I've tried to boot the system with the Fedora 11 DVD, rescue menu and then chroot. This in order to run a "yum update" in the hope that the problem was in some broken update. No chance: there's no update.

My questions are:

1. Is there a way to boot Fedora withou any graphical interface from GRUB (or anything else to skip the KDE)?

2. Is there a way to have the (cabled) network activated at boot *before* the graphical login?

3. What the he** is happening to my otherwise pefectly working laptop?

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Points With The Bottom Of The Mouse And Not The Upper Tip Of The Point

Oct 5, 2010

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?

Fedora :: How To Fix Mouse Locking Up In Fedora 13 Running As Vmware Guest?

Jun 2, 2010

I'm happily running Fedora 13 as a guest OS in VMWare 3.0.1, except that it has one little issue.Sometimes the mouse would get terribly confused. It generally happens when I hit the mouse scroll wheel or when I move a window around very quickly. After that the left mouse button would stop working...

Anyway I found an easy workaround which I thought I'd share.Just hit 'enter unity' on the VMWare player menu. Then you can immediately exit unity again. This somehow resets the mouse into its normal state...

Fedora :: New Way To Map Mouse Buttons?

Jun 30, 2009

I've upgraded to FC11 and I've noticed that the extra buttons on my Logitech mx1000 mouse are now detected. However most of them aren't mapped to anything. In the past one would start changing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Lately, there seems to be movement away from changing this file and I notice that the default xorg.conf has no entry in it for the mouse. Is there a new preferred way to map mouse buttons? I'd like to make buttons 6 and 7 scroll horizontally and button 10 instruct compiz to show all windows.
