Ubuntu :: Big Slow Down After Update - Took 3 Seconds For The Mouse To Select The Pic

Nov 26, 2010

I have Ubuntu Lucid Lynx since it came out, and until now it worked fine. I am updating regularly. Today too, I installed everything offered to me by updates manager (I looked through the list and didnt see anything I wouldnt want to update, but I dont remember everything that was there), and it asked for restart. Ok, so I restarted. Everything seemed fine. Then I tried to look at a picture, in normal,default viewer, an huh. It took 3 seconds for the mouse to select the pic, then another about 6 to open the viewer (and we are talking about a 40 KB pic). That was slow, but I thought maybe it was an accident. But no, everything I tried since goes slowly, at about a quarter of speed as before the update. I tried to remove unnecessary things with apt-get autoremove, I tried to stop or end all processes that seemed unnecessary, with no result. I restarted thrice. Nothing comes to mind anymore.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Stops Working After A Few Seconds Of Moving?

Sep 11, 2010

I boot up Ubuntu 10.04 just fine. The mouse works, but after about 2 seconds or so, it stops moving. Of course, the keyboard keeps working fine. It's like Ubuntu stops getting the signals that the mouse is moving. The mouse is in fine working condition. It works fine on my Windows partition. The mouse just had fresh batteries installed, and the laser light doesn't turn off.

I did just remove an ATI card and go back to my GeForce 8200 onboard graphics card. So I thought it might be a wierd driver problem, so I managed to remove the NVIDIA drivers. Didn't help at all. I also was able to log into a console and update the OS. No help there either. I did try to boot my 10.04 live cd, but my computer hates live cd's for some reason. It wouldn't boot, and I can't remember what I did to make it work when I installed Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Become Idle If Don't Move The Mouse For A Few Seconds

Sep 5, 2010

I have a laptop Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 2550 and if I don't move the mouse for a few seconds becomes idle. Sometimes become idle after 1-2 seconds, sometimes after 1 minute. When that happens everything stops including sound, but when I move the mouse everything go back to normal.

(that's happening with the newer alsa driver) On ubuntu 10.04(which use a later alsa driver) I can prevent the laptop become idle if I listen music but the sound stop sometimes for a second. (seems like is an alsa driver problem) Right now the best solution is to install OSS driver and to play music all the time.

Slackware :: Slow - Every 30 Seconds The Internet Lags

Oct 20, 2010

It seems every 30 seconds the internet lags, after that it is fine for 30 seconds. And this happens continuously. Also it seems when I am on Firefox if I am connected to a website, I can navigate the website with not further trouble. But if I navigate away and try to go back, it takes a while. I didn't update, or upgrade or anything. I am running 13.1 and have been since it came out. This just started with the internet 2 days ago. Also I have a dual boot with Win7 and the internet is fine on Win7.

General :: Computer Freezes For 2+ Seconds But Mouse Still Moves / What To Do?

Dec 10, 2010

I have this problem on my workstation. The computer would effectively freeze for 2-5 seconds for no apparent reason, then continue as normal. While frozen the mouse would still be movable, but only on one of screens in my multi-screen setup. What can be the likely cause.


CPU: i7-920
Memory: 12G of Patriot DDR3, 6 modules
OS: SLED 11, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop, using Gnome
Main board: Asus P6T
Video: two Nvidia 9500GT connected to three displays

I am using memory at recommended settings of 8-8-8-1333. It has an XMP profile. Th CPU is a bit overclocked to 3.3 GHz, but my cooling more than allows for it. I ran the computer with all overclocks off and lower memory speed but the issue was still there.

Debian :: New Install Running Slow - System Freezes Every 30 Seconds Or So

Sep 26, 2015

So i just finally installed Debian Jessie OS, replacing Ubuntu. But now it is running extremely slow. It's not internet connection. The internet speed is running fine (Videos load quickly), but it's like the system freezes every 30 seconds or so. A video can be fully loaded but still stops and starts constantly. Just browsing the internet, or non-internet things do the same also. I switched back to Ubuntu to see if it was different on there, but Ubuntu is running fine.

Ubuntu :: Can't Select An Update

Feb 1, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and tried updating the software after the installation. All of the updates seemed to have installed properly, except one - Event based init daemon. It remains in the update window and I am unable to select it to update it. I have tried refreshing the update window and even restarting my computer, but neither worked. I have tried updating it in the synaptic package manager but it gives me an error message stating that it would break libc6 if I chose to update event based init daemon.

Apr 6, 2011

I installed unity on ubuntu 10.10. when it first starts there is no problem ... but when I hover over any window the mouse gets stuck or at least REALLY slow that I cant control it. (I noticed also the keyboard does the same) some sites I searched suggested to remove unity application package and some other pack .. but it did not help. I use ATI (propriety drivers) on a Toshiba Laptop intel core i3, 3GB ram note that I downloaded gnome3-shell to try it but the exact same thing happened as unity.

General :: Mouse Single-click Equals Double-click - Can't Select The Entire URL By Clicking

Apr 13, 2011

when i click my mouse on something, it sometimes registers as two clicks. it doesn't happen all the time, but frequently enough to be annoying. for example, when i click a videos video to pause it, it often opens into fullscreen (which you normally click twice to do). also, in the url bar of chromium, i can't select the entire url by clicking. i now need to use ctrl+a. that's also because when i try to select the url, the highlight randomly disappears.

if i have multiple windows open, my click on the first "x" of the top-most window also closes the next window. i'm on linux mint 10. it's not really important, but it drives me crazy sometimes when my mouse doesn't work the way i want it to.

Ubuntu :: Maverick - Sometimes Very Slow - Mouse Lags - Low Cpu Load ?

Nov 10, 2010

Since I upgraded to Maverick, every now and then (maybe once an hour) my system becomes very slow for about half a minute. The mouse cursor reacts only very slowly and also applications freeze for for some time.

This happens without the CPU being on full load or the hard disk being active.

I made a clean ubuntu installation on a new hard drive a week ago, but the problem persists.

I have a Thinkpad R400 with an Intel GMA 4500 graphics card an an Intel T5670 Core 2 Duo processor. I'm running the most up to date stable version of ubuntu. Kernel 2.6.35-22.

I know the description of the problem is very vague, but it's hard to describe it more accurately. I couldn't find anything helpful on google or the forum. If you have any ideas what might cause the problem or which log files might provide useful information, please let me know. Most importantly, the problem did not occur before I upgraded to Maverick.

Ubuntu :: Significance Of Swap Partition - Cpu Light Keeps Blinking Continuously And The Mouse Movement Is Very Slow

Aug 2, 2010

I need to know the necessity of swap partition in Ubuntu.. I have recently bought a new HD and installed Ubuntu(with NO swap,only Ubuntu on a single partition) on it and am facing frequent,random hanging issues with it.. Earlier,my old HD used an swap partition along with main partition and i never faced hanging issues at that time..

Actually, when in hanging mode,the cpu light keeps blinking continuously and the mouse movement is very slow,the screen also becomes dim.After sometime,it comes out of hanging mode and mouse movement becomes normal.Sometimes,even after waiting for 15-20 minutes,it does not come out of hanging mode and the system has to be restarted.(this is what forced me to look for a possible solution to this)
