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.

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 :: 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 :: Can't Scroll In Menus

Aug 27, 2010

When menus in gnome are too long to fit on screen, there appear two arrows in the menu, one at the top and one at the bottom. When I hover over the down arrow, it starts scrolling, but when I then try to click on one of the items, it jumps back to the original position as soon as the cursor leaves the down arrow.

This is very annoying, as I can't reach all entries in for example my preferences menu. Is there a workaround for this?

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 :: Windows Without Scroll Bars In UNR?

Jun 4, 2010

I am having a problem with Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I couldn't stand the new UI with the huge icons taking up my screen, and the maximize/minimize/close buttons displaced, so I enabled the normal Gnome desktop on my netbook. However, with my tiny screen I am seeing that some windows have lost all of the information, and no scrollbar is present.

For instance, when attempting to change account settings in Mozilla Thunderbird, some of the options would extend beyond the bottom of the windows where "cancel" and "ok" are found, but the window ends and no option to scroll down to the missing information exists. A similar problem happens when I try to make adjustments to some items in system administration.

I've heard that there is some technique to get this working

Ubuntu :: How To Scroll Down Other Window In Emacs

Oct 26, 2010

I like emacs very much, and especially like using C-M-v and C-M-S-V to scroll other window up and down. It is cool, especially when I am coding and referring documents.The problem is, using C-M-v to scroll down is OK in both terminal and X,but using C-M-S-V to scroll up just works well in X, if I use it in terminal, it behaves scrolling down too.

Ubuntu :: Get Tilt To Work On Scroll Wheel?

Jan 28, 2010

I am using a Logitech Wave wireless mouse (no keyboard, since I'm on a notebook), and I am trying to get the tilt to work on my scroll wheel. It is being recognized as simply Left/Right keypresses, e.g. Alt-[Left Tilt] backs up a page in Firefox. Does anyone know how I can remap that to something else? In my case, Alt-Tab and Alt-Shift-Tab.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus - How To Change Colors Used On Scroll Bar

May 29, 2010

In 10.04 Lucid my Nautilus scroll bars are white. The scroll bar slider (the icon that can be moved up and down with the cursor to scroll the window) is the exact same shade of white and the slider outline is pale grey. The lack of color contrast makes the slider hard to see. Is there a preference item somewhere that lets me change this color scheme?

I expected to find it in System >> Preferences >> Appearance >> Theme but I don't think there's anything there about the scroll bars. I think my monitor might be more contrasty than most, which is probably exacerbating the problem, but this is what I have to work with. I would rather fix it by changing a system setting than replacing the monitor.

Ubuntu :: Configure PS/2 Scroll Wheel Mouse?

Jul 7, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Shift+Alt Triggers Scroll Lock

Aug 4, 2010

I`ve recently bought a Genius Slim Star 220 USB keyboard. The problem is that when I switch between keyboard layouts with shift+alt this also triggers scroll lock. I`m running Ubuntu 10.04 x64 kernel 2.6.32-24 EDIT As I`ve just found out it`s not shift+alt that trigger scroll lock, but the fact of changing the keyboard layout. I`ve tried several other hotkey combinations as well as changing layout with the taskbar applet. All the same.
