Ubuntu :: Stopping A Two Finger Click?

Aug 5, 2011

I've got a laptop with a touchpad. When my cursor is in a text box (ie: this one or abiword or email) and I touch my touchpad with two fingers it automatically pastes whatever is on the "clipboard." How can I make it so when I touch my touchpad with two fingers it does NOT paste any text?

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 / Apple :: Can Make Two Finger Tap Register As Right Mouse Click?

Jun 17, 2011

I just installed ubuntu 11.04 on my macbook 2,1 and noticed that the trackpad was having many issues with detecting my finger, it works fine in OSX. I found this post, but cant find the xorg.config file and read that it no longer exists in ubuntu 11.04 (and yes, I know that that page is for 10.10, but it should still work). Is there anywhere that I could put in that code to make the trackpad more responsive?Is there any way I can make a two finger tap register as a right mouse click?

Feb 3, 2011

i upgraded from f13 to f14 using preupgrade.

now, as the title suggests, the two finger tap acts as a right click, and the three button tab acts as a middle click. and also the tap to click seems disabled by default.

after reading this page, [URL], i created a 50-synaptics.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and put this inside.

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Driver "synaptics"

Ubuntu :: Boot Hangs On "Stopping Save Kernel Messages" Or "stopping System V Runlevel Compatib?

May 16, 2011

Boot of a new minimal system hangs on "Stopping save kernel messages" or "stopping system v runlevel compatibility". I have ubuntu minimal iso x86_64 from usb stick created with unetbootin (don't have a cd drive on the machine in question), and after that I didsudo aptitude install gnome-terminal network-manager-gnome gdm geditsudo rebootnever got a system back. Annoyingly I can't boot into the recovery mode either, and it seems the keyboard is only semi-responsive (i.e. many dead keys when at the grub menu).qualms about reinstalling, but I've done this a few times and ended up at the same place every time.

OpenSUSE :: Stopping The Screen Saver And Stopping The Screen Locking?

Jan 23, 2011

In December I finally filled up my root partition and broke Suse 11.1. I therefore resized my partitions and installed Suse 11.3 on /root. I didn't not touch my /home partition.

I notice that when I leave my machine and come back the screen has locked. I have tried to turn off the screensaver, but it hasn't worked. I have Googled, but unfortunately the screen shots don't look like what I have and the instructions to stop this do not seem to match what I am seeing on the screen.

Is there a way to do this via the command line?

I've been able to get two finger scrolling working thanks to ptosiani's solution in this thread: [URL]

The problem is if I restart my computer, two finger scrolling doesn't work anymore and I have to go through the process again to get it working. Does anybody have some insight on this problem?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Invert 2 Finger Scrolling?

Jun 26, 2011

I most recently ran a developer preview of os x 10.7 Lion, and in that OS two finger scrolling was inverted (ie, moving two fingers upward on the touchpad would scroll you down the page). I love that I didn't need any extra drivers to get two finger scrolling working with ubuntu 11.04 on my 3rd gen mac air, and am super impressed with all the out of the box drivers for my mac; but I'm wondering if there's a way to invert the two finger scrolling directions. There must be... It's probably technically involved and will necessitate modify x11 files or something, but I think there must be a way.

Ubuntu :: Cursor Control Using Webcam And Finger

Nov 17, 2010

I have a hp mini 2140,which is a netbook with a small webcam.I'm not that kind of person who really use the webcam.So basically the webcam is useless.Surfing the web,I found that someone can control their cursor with head using webcam and eviacam.But I don't think it is the right software for me.Searching ubuntu's software center,I found a program called"Mousetrap"I installed it in my desktop pc and it worked. Unfortunately,when i try to install it on my netbook,it couldn't start.

I watched the "Six sense"video again.I notice that the man sticks red tape on his finger to help computer to id his finger.How can I control the cursor using finger with webcam?Creating multi touch in ubuntu,is it possible?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Alternatives To Two-finger Right-clicking?

Dec 22, 2010

I'm finding it really annoying having to right click by holding two fingers on the touchpad and then clicking. Usually when I set my two fingers down when I'm on the target, it scrolls the screen a bit and I end up having to scroll back to the target. This annoyance is really not going away.Does anyone know of another alternative for right-clicking besides using two fingers on the touchpad? I'd really like to set the "fn" key to do it (as I don't use it for anything anymore) - is this possible?

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 :: Horizontal Scroll Does Not Work (two Finger) But Vertical Does

Jan 20, 2011

I have gpointing devices 1-4 installed on ubuntu 10.10. The vertical and horizontal scrol both used to work. I have the latest 1.1.1 dkms synaptics driver posted in that bug forum. But now the horizontal scroll using two fingers does not work at all. I have it checked under mouse settings AND in gpointing devices. Is this a known bug?

Apparently I can't delete this. It has been solved. Smooth scrolling in Chrome kills horizontal scrolling

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.

Fedora :: Use .plan Or .project With Finger In 12?

Jul 28, 2010

How do I get the contents of .plan and .project files to show up using the finger command for regular users? As it stands with the setup I have in Fedora 12, only the user in question and the superuser can see them when they finger the user. Everyone else gets "no plan". I've tried chmod .plan o+rwx and chmod .plan a+rwx to no effect.ur.

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.

Debian Configuration :: Finger Print Reader?

Jan 22, 2010

debian unstable system i have a problem with thinkfinger. By default i should only swipe my finger and i don`t have to press enter after that. The problem is that now i have to press enter. For example in GDM if i enter my username i should swipe my finger and it should let me log in. Now after i swipe my finger nothing happenes unless i press enter.The problem may be related to the update of xorg. The same problem has been reported here: Is there anyone here who uses thinkfinger who could possibly have an idea why is this happening?I am using thinkfinger 3.0 on debian unstable with kernel 2.6.32-amd64, xorg 1.7.4, SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint Reader and GNOME. Other than the having to press enter i have no problems with thinkfinger. I am have patched thnikfinger with two patches:This patch solves the problem with thinkfinger taking too long to intialize:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Synaptic Touchpad Recognizes Only One Finger

Nov 25, 2010

I read that synaptic touchpads should support multitouch and as I have one of those I tried to enable it. However I wasn't successful.

After some digging in config files (I had to enable SHMConfig) I ended up with KDE configuration tool which is really cool but all multitouch options are there disabled. And also there is an information which says that only one finger is detected by this touchpad.

Is something wrong or my touchpad just doesn't support multitouch? I got this laptop 1.5 years ago so it's not very old.

And by the way, I have this in my Xorg.0.log

[ 28.821] (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: touchpad found
[ 28.821] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/mouse2)
