Ubuntu :: Scroll Tab Vanishes Before Can Click On It To Scroll Down

Jun 3, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Scroll Click Stop Working / What To Do?

Jul 4, 2010

Until yesterday, I used the scroll key, middle click, to open/close tabs at Firfox and chrome, today for some reason is not working any more.

I can roll pages up and down, but at Firefox and chrome i cant open/close the tabs with scroll/middle click.

I checked online and the only fix I found was the safe mode solution, which I don't know how to do this on Ubuntu.

I reinstall Firefox and chrome but same thing happens.

I think its something at about:config. I mess around with it, tried all combination, seems nothing happened there for me, no reaction at any changes.

Kinda noob at Linux so if you could explain any solution like talking to 5yo kid would be appreciated.

Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox fully updated.

Ubuntu :: Java App Interprets Horizontal Scroll As Right Click?

Jun 3, 2010

I'm running 10.4 on a Lenovo thinkpad laptop. Usually I can use the right and bottom edge of my touchpad for vertical/horizontal scrolling (e.g. in firefox). However in one java application (Matlab), the horizontal scrolling is interpreted as a right click. In a similar way, when I touch the upper right corner of the touchpad, it's interpreted as a middle mouse button click.

Ubuntu :: Allowing Middle Mouse Button Click To Scroll?

May 11, 2010

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Scroll And Middle Click Via Wacom Bamboo Tablet

Jun 17, 2011

I recently purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen Only (CTL-460). It's a great device and in Fedora 15 (x86_64) it worked out-of-the-box like a charm!

I don't miss the rubber or the extra keys on the tablet. But I'm having quite some trouble, using the pen as a mouse replacement in all day use. The following is with respect to usage outside GIMP and Inkscape (i.e. Firefox, Nautilus etc). What I would really like to have, is:

+ scrolling by pressing the "first button" and simply _moving_ the pen. Just like with my Thinkpad-Trackpoint: Here I press the middle key and can then scroll just by controlling the Trackpoint. Would already be cool, if I could scroll by pressing the "first button" and touching the tablet. A short tap while pressing the "first button" should still be a "middle click"!


Found a solution for "jamming at the edge of the screen". Just resized the "area" a bit (smaller) with xsetwacom...

Ubuntu :: Wubi Not Working - "no Need To Burn A CD. Just Run The Installer, Enter A Password For The New Account, And Click Install"

Sep 24, 2010

"no need to burn a CD. Just run the installer, enter a password for the new account, and click "Install", go grab a coffee, and when you are back, Ubuntu will be ready for you." that's what it says on the wubi page. I did exactly that, then it asks to reboot which I did, and still no ubuntu. All I have is 3 folders, one icon and one application.


ubuntu (just an icon, nothing happens when I click on it, just an image pops up) and uninstall-wubi.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Won't Scroll Down

Feb 28, 2010

I'm trying to install UNR on an Asus Eee PC701SD, and I'm having problems with the scrolling. The screen won't scroll down during the install, which means that the forward and back buttons are hidden, and not accessible. I can move forward with the hot keys, but the very last screen, which has the button "Install", doesn't appear to have a hot key. In case you're wondering how I know this - I saw a screenshot of it How can I get past this problem? Is there a hot key, or is there a way to fix the scrolling?

Ubuntu Installation :: Crashes On Install Flashing Caps And Scroll Lock

Nov 25, 2010

Have a HP Proliant DL380 which had Ubuntu installed. Have not used it for about 6 months but wanted to resurrect the machine. Switched it on and it would not boot. Went through the usual boot load then would freeze with a flashing scroll and caps lock. Thought I would just re install and recreate the partions but now when I try to install Ubuntu 9 from an offical disc I get the same error. I have attached a screen shot (well photo).

Disappearance of ubuntu screen off and not being able to enter it. To solve this problem we have to we add to Menu List And through the opening of Fedora menu.lst

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Enter LUKS Password In 10.04 Boot

May 1, 2010

I've just upgraded from 9.10 on a system that has an encrypted root partition encrypted using the following guide:


On boot, prior to the LUKS password prompt, I see the error:

cannot open file /etc/console-setup/boottime.kmap.gz

The consequence is that the keyboard does not respond, the password cannot be entered, and the root partition cannot be unlocked.

This behavior occurs on all 2.6.32.x kernels but falling back to my previous kernel, works just fine.

This is on a production system and is not running in a virtual machine, so the issue is not:


I have tried running sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, which does regenerate the initram-fs for the desire kernel, but it does not solve the problem.

The guide's initram hook includes the lines:

mkdir -p ${DESTDIR}/etc/console-setup
cp /etc/console-setup/boottime.kmap.gz ${DESTDIR}/etc/console

... but my understanding of the initram stages of the boot process are hazy and I am unclear what the intent is behind the lines.

Ubuntu :: Found That Two Finger Tapping Touchpad Has Gone From Middle Click To Right Click?

May 1, 2010

I'm newish to the forum, but have been using ubuntu for the past few months.I recently upgraded from eeebuntu (a 9.04 derivative) to 10.04, and found that two finger tapping my touchpad has gone from middle click to right click, (and 3 fingers is now middle instead of right).

From what I've seen, this has been changed since 9.10, but I haven't been able to find a permanent solution yet. Most fixes have been from before and use hal, or other things that don't exist anymore. The one thing I've found does work is using xinput and the command

xinput set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Synaptics Tap Action" 2, 3, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3

But that has to be run every time I start up, and it occasionally reverts while I'm using the computer. I've tried making a script that runs at startup, but neither adding it to the list of startup programs, or autostart folder has worked, but running the script file manually does work. I'm a bit at wits end with this, it's the only issue I've had with 10.04, and I've spent many many hours trying to get it to work (I've also tried gsynaptics and the newer version whose name escapes me right now). Hopefully there's a permanent fix out there.

Ubuntu :: Single Mouse Click Registering As Double Click?

Mar 13, 2010

About a week ago I installed some updates. What they were I don't remember. After I did that my mouse started acting up. Now about half the time when I single click it registers as a double click. Also when I click and drag to select text anywhere it'll randomly do another click screwing up that process.

So far I think the problem is when I press the left mouse button it registers the left click and then when I release, it randomly registers another left click.

The mouse itself works fine if I take it to another PC that's using windows.

OS: Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
Mouse: Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Manual Partitioner - Cannot Enter Mount Point

Jun 18, 2011

I am installing 11.04 on a test PC. My standard drive layout, developed over many years and many distros is as follows:

sda1 /
sda2 /home
sda3 swap
sda4 /data

/ and /home are relatively small. I put most data files on /data to facilitate hot backup of important data to another drive or machine.

/ and /home are periodically cold backed up with g4l. That said...I noticed that the install partitioner in 11.04 only allows me to select from a list of mount points. / home var etc. I can not type in a mount point of my liking as I have done since I started using Ubuntu about 6.4.Is this Canonical's idea of an improvement?Yes I can manually format the /data partition after install and add it to /etc/fstab. Still I would give Canonical three thumbs down on this enhancement.

p.s. The above seems to be a moot point as the installer refuses to install the boot loader. I have filed a bug report. It makes no difference if I partition the disk manually or allow the installer to partition it to its defaults. If it ain't broke, break it.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Double Click To A Single Click In 10.04

Aug 9, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS has no immediately apparent way that I can see for changing the mouse behavior from the default double-click to single-click. There appears to be some type of kludgy, but unsatisfactory fix for this unwanted behavior in the Accessibility-option, under Mouse-Preferences.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get To The Login Screen, But When Hit Enter Eveything Turns Black?

Nov 30, 2010

I'm trying to install the latest version of Ubuntu Studio. I tried it a few months ago with my HP... a live system worked fine, but when I installed it, it would go blank after the splash screen. I assumed it was some sort of incompatible graphics driver and gave up since I don't know enough about Ubuntu yet.Now I have a spare Dell XPS desktop sitting around and I got the latest version of Ubuntu Studio and tried it again. The install goes by erfectly, this time the welcome screen actually comes up and I can see my username. As soon as I hit enter, which I imagine should bring up the password prompt, the entire screen goes black and won't respond to anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Non Executable Memory Error When Enter /usr/bin/check-bios?

Apr 1, 2011

I have decided to load the OS on a old HP Compaq DX2000 MT to see if its for me before putting it on my main machine.

I loaded Ubuntu version 10.10 last night everything was fine except I could not get my wireless adapter to work, I decided to connect via ethernet to get the latest updates and drivers.

After the updates and restart I now get the non executable memory error. when I enter
/usr/bin/check-bios-nx --verbose

I am told I have NX capabilities and should go to the bios and enable it. There is nothing in
the bios to enable as far as I can see. So I enter the command

sudo rm /etc/update-motd.d/20-cpu-checker

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Finished - Click OK To Reboot It Never Does - Forcing A Shutdown

Sep 20, 2010

I'm having is trying to install ubuntu 10.04, when i get to the end and it asks you to click OK to reboot it never does, it sits there and never reboots (left for an hour!), forcing a shutdown and starting up then results in no GRUB coming up to dual boot (windows 7, installed on a seperate HDD)

This previously worked fine but I got rid of ubuntu to try a different flavour (which didn't install successfully, couldn't find the disk drive I wanted to install it on but I had already wiped ubuntu off for a fresh install)

I have formatted the partition i made (30gb partition) and manually created space for root and a partition from that for a swap file but this made no difference. I have used a partition manager and completely got rid of the partition (resizing the drive back up to full amount) and let the ubuntu installer do the partition itself but again the same problem.

I'm not sure what it is doing at this stage when going to reboot, i'm guessing installing GRUB and terminating the processes for the reboot, which never completes. I have also tried installing GRUB on the partition which said "Windows 7 loader" but that made no difference. I will try fixboot and fixmbr commands in windows recovery console in case it can't overwrite the boot sector for any particular reason tonight.
