Hardware :: Friendly Touch Scroll Or 360 Degree Scroll Mouse?
Sep 12, 2010
I really enjoyed using Apple's wireless Mighty Mouse and Magic mouse because of their ability to easily touch scroll 360 degrees. Unfortunately, Linux drivers are not provided for these mice.Is there an equivalent wireless mouse that works well in Linux? Ideally with native support or community provided drivers, etc.
The new scroll tab that 11.04 has appears when you hover over the orange area on the scroll bar. The scrolling arrows are gone.Well this scrolling tab often vanishes before I can click on it to scroll down. Is there a way to revert to the old style, like the scrolling mechanism on these forums? It is nice to have the option of the arrows on top and bottom, along with the scroll tab thing.
I want to ask you it is possible to increase/ decrease volume in debian with mouse scroll. I used Linux Mint and when I put the mouse pointer on the volume icon it was possible to control the volume only with mouse scroll. Now in Debian, first I have to click on volume icon and then to increase volume with mouse scroll.
I have been facing this inconvenience since the first days of my life in Ubuntu, but never thought of any solution to it. Today, while reading a long page of icle in Mozilla Firefox, I badly felt the necessity of scrolling down and up using my mouse's wheel. But it isn't activated by default. I've heard that there is some technique to get this working
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?
I know its possible because 2 days ago the "scroll speed" was perfect. The only thing that has changed is that I have used a different usb port for my mouse now, and I have installed a copy of windows 7 on my second HD. However, after all this, my mouse scroll speed on Ubuntu is unbearably too fast. Its almost half a page for every one "click" of the mouse scroll wheel.
I was wondering if it's possible to change how much my mouse wheel scrolls. For some reason it scrolls way more than is normal (not just in web browsers, but in every application). It works fine on Windows 7, but it seems to not work well with Linux distros.I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed, and I'm using a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 4000.
I've been having a problem with my mouse ever since installing Ubuntu. I'm using a built in laptop mouse. Whenever I'm using a scroll bar, the mouse seems to become attached to it. When I leave the scroll bar, the mouse seems to be attached to it, dragging the page up or down. Sometimes it does that even when I've been typing after using the scroll bar. I've heard a 3-button mouse is commonly used with Linux. Is that what I need.
I just got my hands on an old RollerMouse from work. [URL] It's pretty neat, however I think it would be killer if I could remap the roller (which is just a mouse) to function like a two-way scroll-wheel, and maybe the buttons as special shortcuts. Does anyone know if this can be done? I figured it's not a standard part of anything, so I'll at least have to make some script or changes to a driver, but I have no idea where to start..
Fresh install of Debian 8.1, have not changed a single setting anywhere. Was scrolling in the web browser and noticed that if I scrolled up or down fast enough the active window changes. Using kde as the desktop environment. Also this has nothing to do with the browser as it happens with anything I have open. Heck trying to scroll in console and having a document open just flips between the two of them. Only way this does not happen is if I scroll slow enough.
yesterday i upgraded to f13 and it works perfect with preupgrade but now my mouse-scroll are very fast. under the mouse-settings in gnome i fund no option to lower the speed. where can i lower the scroll-speed?
I have scrolling speed problem on my mouse, however it s working sometimes when i restart OS i mean it s working slowly as it should. But it s random dont know whats wrong with sometimes it s scrolling so fast and thats killing me u know it s really so hard to use it when browse something on web-pages. Weird part is how it s working ok when i restart OS.
I just switched from Jaunty to Karmic, and in the process of setting up desktop effects, I'm having a hard time with configuring the rotate cube compiz effect. Before, I was able to scroll on the desktop (ie, not over a window/application) to spin the cube to the next face. Now, it seems that I either have to use keyboard shortcuts or lose the ability to scroll in applications.
I've tried enabling the mouse scrolling to button 4/button 5 a la this post, but this doesn't fix the problem. This is one of the few desktop effects that really made a difference in terms of convenience, so I'd really like to be able to fix this setting.
I'm working with Ubuntu 10.04 x64 + Asus 1201N + Media-Tech MD1083 RELOADED bluetooth mouse. Gnome Bluetooth Applet has setup mouse perfectly except scrolling. Even back&forward buttons seem to work fine but the scroll wheel does not work at all.
In "xev" I can see that scrolling does not produce any events.
I have a recent installation of openSUSE 11.4_64bit with KDE as desktop environment and like in all other linux distros my mouse middle button has a problem when clicked and dragged. The effect that it does when I click in the scroll button and move up and down is the same as when I rotate the button and it does nothing when I move to the side. Usually in programs like google earth (just an example) this is a very useful function as is used to set direction to navigate and angle and then this setting just does zoom when moved up/down and nothing else. It is also very annoying that every time that I click the middle button in a browser it goes back to the previous search in the default browser search engine. I already tried some setting in yast but no difference and forum search didn't retrieved a lot of info.
In Google Chrome Beta and in Epiphany, I am able to scroll through the different tabs with the middle mouse button. However, this doesn't happen in Firefox. Is there any way to implement a feature like this in Firefox?
I want to be able to auto scroll by clicking my middle mouse button. In Firefox you can do this in the about:config easily, but with Google Chrome, I don't know what to do.
There is no Chrome option to allow this, so I guess I'd have to configure some stuff. Does anyone know how to do this? I really prefer Chrome over Firefox, and would like to go back to it, but can't without auto scroll.
How may I slow down the mouse scroll speed in F10? When I use the scroll wheel, a mere fraction of a turn and I am zooming through a page. I already tried changing some settings in Firefox, per another posting on scroll speed. It did not seem to work.
I have a lil' problem with a new project. I'd like to find out how to set the ability to change to the next track in a playlist by using ongly the scroll wheel of a standard usb mouse. The objective is to assign a keystroke or a command to both mouse button 4 and mouse button 5 (scroll wheel up and scroll wheel down), so that a program like rythmbox or vlc would skip to the next or previus song in the playlist.
