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?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 X86-64 New Install - "jerky Mouse - Choppy - Randomly Freezes Erratic"

Jul 28, 2011

Environmentopensuse: 11.4 x86_64 new install
qemu-kvm install
input devices: PS/2 Mouse, EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet

If I just take the mouse and scroll left and right over the desktop, the mouse is "jerky, choppy, randomly freezes, erratic". It occurs all the time. Trying to be more focused and select an object is challenging.

/var/log/messages shows: kernel psmouse.c Explorer mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away Don't know if it is related, but in "Personal Settings" -> "Input Devices" -"Touchpad", there is a "Warning: Touch pad configuration is not supported on this system. ..." I have another virtual machine with the exact same setup running openSUSE 11.2 x86-64, kernel, and the mouse is not "jerky", but I have no wheel support. Comparing logs and config they look alike. I turned off all desktop effects.

Ubuntu :: Sidebar Thing Very Erratic - Move Mouse To The Left Edge Of The Screen - It Doesn't Always Appear

May 3, 2011

I'm not sure what to call the semi-transparent sidebar with a random collection of unconfigurable icons, but I don't think it's working properly.

1. When I move my mouse to the left edge of the screen, it doesn't always appear. Sometimes I have to move my mouse back and forth, back and forth, several times.

2. What it's doing right now is even worse... it appears, but as soon as I move the mouse a *little* bit to the right to actually click an icon, it disappears.

What is causing this? Surely it's a bug? How do I make the sidebar the absolute top priority for the screen edge so that it always catches it and appears? how do I configure it? I can't right-click on the sidebar itself. I can right-click and remove some icons. Other icons, like the grayed-out (but still active) "recent files" thing cannot be removed.

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.

OpenSUSE :: Look Up Smartnav By NaturalPoint For More Info On Guiding Cursor Using Head Movements

Mar 30, 2010

how I'm using a computer then look up Smartnav by NaturalPoint for more info on guiding the cursor using head movements. Windows and Mac only. They have no plans for Linux, I already asked them. Linux now has a similar program which uses the webcam and its called Eviacam. It was developed in Catalonia and is free of charge. Its available along with the source code at I have it working on Ubuntu 9.10 installed along with Windows 7, install it to Open Suse which I find to be a beautiful and slick distro. Ive played around with it in Vbox and I find it to be clean compared with Ubuntu which is quite buggy. this Quad and all disabled people to get onto OpenSUSE? There is very little in the way of these types of assistive technologies for Linux because of the costs.

OpenSUSE :: Erratic Window Behaviour

Feb 7, 2010

I am having a problem with how my windows behave.My windows will maximize and minimize over and over, scroll bars will scroll to the bottom/right automatically, if I click a menu it will pop up for a fraction of a second and then go away. It makes my desktop almost unusable.I can't figure out if this is a mouse or video issue. I have a radeon 9500, and a logitech LX3 optical mouse. BTW, this problem is present in other distributions on my system. I am running KDE. It even does this on the livecd.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 64bit - Brother HL 3040CN Laser Printer Compatibility

Jul 5, 2010

I have a recently purchased Brother HL-3040CN printer that I had been using under Windows XP. I'm hoping to use it on openSUSE 11.2 64-bit. Having consulted SDB:Installing a Printer - openSUSE I ran lpinfo -l -m | grep HL-3040CN as su... evidently this model is not supported.The Brother site Brother Solutions Center : Brother Driver for Linux Distributions seems to suggest maybe there is hope. I am relatively new to Linux.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 Breaks Samsumg Color Laser Muti-function

Jul 20, 2010

Ever since installing 11.3, my Samsung CLX-3175 laser mfp no longer prints. It worked fine under 11.2 using the Samsung proprietary unified driver. That driver no longer seems to work under 11.3. The print job never leaves the queue and the printer must be rebooted (it is a networked printer) to be recognized by the operating system after deleting the job. Here is the relevant error printout from the cups error log from an attempt to print the test printer job:

Ubuntu :: Erratic Images In Top Panel

Sep 1, 2011

Does anyone else experience this phenomena? It only happens on one of my PC's, my Compaq Presario M2000 laptop.The icons for various applications in the top panel load eratically on boot up. E.G sometimes the wireless icon doesen't appear , sometimes it loads twice. Sometimes the Sound Preferences (the speaker icon) is missing, Evolution Mail etc etc. Even the shutdown icon occasionally is gone. It sees limited to the ones on the right side and doesn't seem to affect ones such as Firefox that I've dragged up there myself. It doesen't happen every time, I'd say about 20% of boot ups this happens.

Ubuntu :: Slow/Erratic Scrolling In Chromium?

Apr 23, 2010

I just upgraded from 8.04 to the lucid beta (yes I was slow to move on that), and chromium's scrolling is HORRID! It jumps and skips both when I use the mouse wheel or when I drag the scroll bar.

Any ideas? Firefox scrolls just fine. It makes using chromium very unpleasant because any time I have to scroll I feel like I'm back in 1992.

I did some searching and found lots of complaints, so I thought I was close to an answer until I looked at the date, it was late 2008/early 2009 when this was an issue.

Ubuntu :: Erratic Write Performance On USBs

Sep 12, 2010

I've been having some problems copying files to USBs. If I'm copying a large (100MB+) amount of data, at random points the transfer will just stop for 30+ seconds before continuing. Sometimes it doesn't start up again at all. Consequently, the write speed drops to less than 1MB/sec, sometimes as low as 100 KB/sec. I do not have these problems on Windows 7, where I achieve speeds of ~16 MB/sec easily. I have had the same results with several USBs (2-32 GB) on several file systems (fat32, ext2) with several different computers running fully patched versions of Ubuntu 10.04, which suggests the problem is related to the way the OS accesses the hardware.

Ubuntu :: Extremely Erratic RAID 5 Performance

Jul 16, 2011

I built a RAID5 storage array using 'mdadm' on 3x WD Green 1TB hard drives. I used the Disk Utility GUI to create the array and it took about 24 hours to build. When I started copying files to it I noticed it performed at decent speeds for a while, then got really slow, the sped back up. Just for laughs I ran the Read-Only Benchmark function in the Disk Utility and got a graph that would even confuse stock brokers.Any thought on what the issue might be? I tried searching around for an answer, but most people are only affected by wirte performance issues not reading.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Erratic After Motherboard Upgrade / Fix This?

Mar 6, 2010

I upgaded my system last weekend with a Gigabyte GZ-X58A-UD5 motherboard, i7 processor, ASUS EAH5770 video card, and 12 GB RAM. Sound has been erratic since then. It generally works for a short time after a reboot, but after awhile (within a few hours) it stops working properly or even completely. I've tried several different settings in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, but nothing I've tried helps.

I am running Kubuntu 9.10 64-bit.

Here is the output of aplay -l code...

I don't have anything connected to the HDMI connection on the ATI video card, and only inputs on the M Audio Delta 44 card.

Ubuntu Networking :: Totally Erratic Wireless In Maverick

Nov 2, 2010

wired is fine and fast. Wireless connects but connection goes from 100% to 53% at random, making the connection pretty pointless to use.Probably get fixed in an update. I have tried uninstalling network manager and using wicd. No luck. Well, luck, as in I could connect, but exactly the same as Network Manager.The card is a Realtek RTL8191SEvB. Machine: Toshiba Satellite Pro L510. Any takers? Would really like to get this happening as everything in Maverick is working great apart from it.

Ubuntu :: Erratic And Random Character Cursor Jumping

Dec 20, 2010

I have a dv7-4172us laptop from HP, a new laptop. It has AMD Phenom II N950 -64 bits processors. I am running LiveCD version 10.04 LTS 64 bits in "Try Ubuntu" mode. If I type type fast, the character cursor (not the mouse pointer ) moves away randomly, like a few rows up from present typing location. Sometimes, something else, like another application scrolls it self while I am using Gedit to type this posting. the cursor jumps here and there. Typing on this forum page also produce the same erratic cursor jumping problems!

I also disconnect my optical wireless USB mouse, and still have the same erratic cursor problem. I do not have the ANY problems with Win 7 -64 bits. This is a serious problem. It will render any laptop useless with Linux I so look forward to using Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Upgrade; Have Sound But Erratic Volume?

May 16, 2010

Upgraded via Update Manager from 9.10 sound-previously-working-just-fine-system. Now, for example, running any audio-producing app (Rythmbox is a good example but its the same for anything including out of a VirtualBox XP install or with MythBuntu): The main volume control functions, but goes from muted to full volume in just 4 steps; raising it higher has no effect. It gets stranger: in Alsamixer or gnome-alsa-mixer I can see that lowering the desktop volume control to mute causes Master, PCM, Front, Surround, Center, LFE, and Side all to go to zero. Raising the desktop control one step causes all of these but Front to go to 100% instantly. Increasing the desktop control by a few more steps causes Front to step to 100%, after which no further volume increase is perceived. It's as if each step in the desktop volume equals some 25% of the Front setting, and 100% of the others. The audio setting in System, Preferences, Sound, Hardware is "Analog Stereo Output."

If I click 'Mute' on Master in the mixer then all the speakers mute, but unmuting Master does not unmute anything else. Only after I move and release the mouse-down state from the master volume do the other channels unmute. The volume control in Rythmbox, on the other hand, works seemingly correctly (maybe its going thru Pulseaudio?) And as an aside, why are there no controls for Pulse if it sits on top of ALSA?

I'm really confused by this, as all of it work as "expected" while running 9.10. Here is some output from this system (an ASUS M4A78T-E):

Ubuntu :: Low Cost Laser Printer That Works Out Of The Box?

May 16, 2010

I'm looking for a low cost mono laser printer that just works under Ubuntu. I know that a general 'rule of thumb' is go with HP, but that doesn't seem to be the case with their low-end mono printers, as they use the XQX Stream Protocol instead of Postscript. The more expensive HP printers appear to work because they use Postscript.

Ubuntu :: Multifunction Monochromatic Laser Printer For 10.04?

Sep 24, 2010

I am using Lucid 10.04 and don't plan to change until support is dropped. I am looking to buy a multifunction monochromatic laser printer.

I was considering Samsung SCX-4828FN or HP LaserJet M1522NF. Both have network cards and support for Linux, but I am a little leery of the Samsung's support in Lucid. Does anyone have this printer? It seems to me a better choice if it works, because the toner is quite a bit more economical and I print quite a a lot.

My only requirements are all-in-one scanner/printer, economical, network card, proven to work.

Ubuntu :: Canon All-in-one Laser Printers - No Officially Support?

Apr 6, 2011

I have found several people who have had problems with Canon all-in-one laser printers. I had huge problems when I first set mine up because it wasn't in Synaptic yet. There are threads on the forum addressing specific printers, but since the driver wasn't officially supported for very long I think lots of folks have given up the fight. My thought is that anyone who successfully installed a Canon laser should be able to post to this thread, and/or a link to threads on this or other forums which they found helpful in getting it to work.

The driver as it is shown in Ubuntu 10.10 is cndrvcups-ufr2-uk, and cndrvcups-common. I have a Canon ImageClass MF8050CN color networked laser which works perfectly with this driver. It supports the networking, although it takes a couple minutes to populate the list of printers when you're setting up. I have not tried the USB port since I have no use for that type of configuration. I have not tried scanning to the computer, only to the USB stick, which works fine.
