I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04LTS. After completing the upgrade I lost use of the keyboard and mouse. I am able to type before the system loads but after loading- nothing.I tried connecting a USB mouse and that wouldn't work as well.
Just upgraded to 10.10, which went smoothly except for the fact that my mouse pointer is now gone. I can track where it is by ticking on the function that shows its location when you press control, but otherwise it's invisible (though technically functioning - I can still click on things and move it about).
I've attempted to change the look of the mouse under theme in the hopes that it might be one that doesn't work, but after trying all of the selections I still haven't found one that will display.
I've recently upgraded from 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS. About 90% of the time after boot-up, my mouse cursor seems to be corrupted; I can vaguely see the arrow (or part of it anyway) underneath some squiggly lines. The application KeePassX is affected too; there are some display corruption issues. Sometimes (maybe 1 boot in 10) the mouse cursor looks fine. I have a Radeon 9200 and have looked in the Forum for similar problems but they don't quite match up to mine.
I seem to have a problem with the mouse/cursor freezing up frequently in Lucid. I've tried a different mouse and seem to keep having the problem. The rest of the system seems to work fine but the cursor remains frozen. I have tried unplugging mouse and pluging in a different mouse but cannot get it to unfreeze without re-booting. Is this a know problem by any chance or is it my pc?
Am running Ubuntu NBR as the sole OS on my Dell Mini 9. Switched over in March to 9.10 NBR. Everything worked fine.Upgraded to 10.04 when it was released. It's awesome EXCEPT for this busy cursor thing.As soon as I log in, all the time my cursor is the spinning wheel of busyness.... It works just as a normal cursor would - my computer also does not seem to be slower due to any operations.If I open an application, the cursor will behave as usual within the window but if I more my cursor to the title bar or switch out of the application, the "busy cursor" resumes.
After updating to 11.04, I have been experiencing several problems. One of the major ones is my USB mouse constantly freezes, usually shortly after boot. The computer itself is not frozen, so I can use the keyboard to close applications and restart. Restarting my computer will sometimes solve the problem, but not always. It is so frustrating.
I disabled ACPI, and although that stopped the mouse from freezing, I was uncomfortable with it being disabled, mainly because my computer never shut off properly, it would simply hang.
I have done some research and I am led to believe it has to do with "Bad Sectors" on my HDD. I have included a screenshot of the "Sectors that are failing" And the error messages I am recieving. If you believe it is anything else and there is a fix to it, feel free to inform me.
My mouse cursor will be fine, then it will skip a bit, then it freezes completely.I have to kill -9 the [kpsmoused] process to get make it restart -- then the mouse will work for random amounts of time. Sometimes 2 seconds, sometimes 10 minutes. Then I have to kill it again. And again. Etc.
I had a partition setup with Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.04 dual booting. I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 by installing fresh from CD but leaving the previous /home folder as is. Things seemed to be working fine, but started finding that my mouse and keyboard were freezing. After a quick search on the internet, I found the following suggestions as shown here:- Ubuntu Forums
Here the suggestion was to:- Edit /etc/default/grub, go to the line that begins like: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= Change it to:
This seemed to have resolved the issue but after a couple of days I again find my mouse and keyboard freezing. I also find that my parallel port printer had also stopped working. I have saved the output of dmesg and my syslog. The first can be viewed here but the syslog had too many characters,
Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) Random Freeze / Hang-up It's been a while since I last posted. Just to update, I originally ran Ubuntu 10.04 for a couple of days before giving up on it before switching to Xubuntu Lucid (10.04) - which, in 3 months of solid use never fell over once.
A week ago I did a fresh install of Xubuntu 10.10 on the exact same machine, and guess what?, not a single hiccup either in nearly a weeks' uptime. As explained before, I simply don't know why Gnome falls over on my machine and XFCE doesn't - I'm mystified. But at least my machine's stable enough to actually get some work done, and that's all that really matters to me.
PS: NO, I haven't tried Ubuntu 10.10 yet, who knows, maybe it would actually work on my rig???.. but honestly, I've fallen in love with XFCE - the simplicity & configurability is awesome, best DE out there by a country mile...
what is the difference between the various forms of ubuntu - Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu, and from people's experience, which is the most stable (well the one at least that won't keep freezing etc)? It's getting quite frustrating now with my mouse freezing continually and there just does not seem a simple solution to the problem! I use a Dell desktop C521, with AMD processor, and windows XP SP3 installed on it. So I got the ubuntu 10.10 CD, slotted it in and just followed the instructions to get ubuntu installed side-by-side with windows (ie. dual boot option).
since installing 11.04 on a computer that was running 10.04 perfectly, the system hangs for a split second every 10 seconds or so. If you make little circles with the mouse pointer you will see it jump position when the computer hangs briefly. If you are listening to audio or watching video then this also hangs for the same very short length of time.
I had the exact same problem when I tired going to 10.10 and so had to go back to 10.04. I was hoping it may just be an issue with that version but it seems not. The computer is: 1.6GHz Intel Core Solo, 1GB Memory, the motherboard is a Jetway Mini ITX board with integrated Intel graphics. It has no problem running the 3D stuff in Unity (or any of the old gnome desktops). Changing to 2D or turning off desktop effects in 10.10 does nothing to solve the problem. 10.04 seems to be the last time Ubuntu worked properly with the computer.
I have been doing alot of work in the terminal lately (mostly just for fun) and I was womdering is there a way to use the mouse cursor in the terminal? So I could select and copy/paste text? I know it can be done because I have seen it in slackware before.
Recently with the release of Kali Linux on Aug 11th I have decided to do a clean reinstall and install Kali Linux 2.0 which runs on Jessie Debian using GNOME Shell 3.14.
When my system freezes I am still able to move the mouse and perhaps notably, the cursor still updates from an arrow to a hand icon in certain locations as though it is over a link - though this does not necessarily correspond to where links are actually displayed on the screen. I have seen no response to any keyboard interaction. For a while I have decided to ignore the freezes but they happen far too frequently to be ignored, within an hour my system would freeze up to 10 - 30 times for up to 15+ seconds at a time. The only application I am using when this seems to happen is iceweasel and I cant think of anything else that could be stressing the machine.

i'm using fedora 12 on my new EASYNOTE_TJ65-DM-139IT [URL]... from time to time (about one time a day) computer freeze, i cannot use my keyboard, mouse still work (that is: i can move the pointer on the screen) but click on opened windows, button, menu doesn't do nothing. I can't understand what's the problem and how to solve it, all i can do is hardware turn off the computer and reload fedora. This is quite disappointing, hw power off it every day can harm my notebook.
I am using a Asus UL30A laptop computer. I just performed an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04. I remember running into this problem before, but I forgot how to fix it. The problem is, when I plug my laptop into the external monitor with my laptop screen turned off automatically when I first log in, I do not see the mouse cursor on the external monitor! The mouse cursor is still here, although invisible - if I do a right-click, the property menu will come up. My current workaround is simple- if I switch to the next workspace (by pressing Ctrl-Alt-right arrow), the cursor will appear from then on.
I used ubuntu 10.04 for some months and it worked just fine. Suddenly when my little sister and brother used the computer it crashed (Could be because of some upgrade). Black screen after ubuntu loading screen. So I googled for a while but lost my temper so I loaded my ubuntu cd formatted the disk and installed ubuntu over again. This time i get to login screen and after login all i see is the wallpaper and mouse cursor. I can move the cursor but I cant right-click or anything. Ubuntu works perfectly in safe mode though!
A difference a noticed from the first time I installed was that the first time: I could choose to install proprietary drivers for my graphic card and wifi network card whith "Jockey". Now i cant and I have no wifi internet connection! I dont know how the graphic card works but apparently its using some kind of default driver as i can see things how to make my ubuntu work as good as before
Graphic card: ATI Radeon X1200 (It worked before with compiz, desktop effects and everything!) Network card: Broadcom Netlink BCM5787M (Yes this is also my wifi card because of the M in the end, also worked good as ever, before) Computer: HP Compaq 6715b
I have dual monitors, and I was running Minecraft in a window on the external screen and I accidentally pressed F11, which made the game appear on both screens at once (I have dual monitors), one with the mouse and one without, when I pressed F11 again both screens flickered but nothing changed. I could move the mouse to close the window but it didn't respond, so I restarted, and now the cursor is stuck against the left side of the screen and doesn't respond to the touchpad (unfortunately I don't have a USB mouse to try out) It's a Samsung R580 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10, with an ATI HD545V graphics card. just recently installed Ubuntu for the first time and would really like to get to back to using it. Feel free to patronize me, I won't get offended.
How do I increase the mouse speed in Ubuntu Linux? Running Gnome 2.30.0. I've already maxed out Pointer Speed Sensitivity in the Mouse Preferences control panel. I am not interested in increasing the Acceleration. Is there a config file I can edit to boost it past what the control panel allows?
I know that this mouse can track faster because it does in Windows.
I've recently got a tablet pc and I've got it nicely set up with Jolicloud - an Ubuntu derivative like Mint - but I can't hide the mouse cursor in Gnome. Now, I've read so much about tips and tricks on how to hide the cursor with terminal, X and gconf tricks in my Googling, but NOTHING works!
How do I do this definitely? Edit: Unclutter is not what I want, nor is changing the root X cursor satisfactory, because it is overridden by whatever toolkit you are using.
When I close the lid on my laptop, it blanks the screen but does not sleep or hibernate. When I open the lid, the screen wakes and everything runs, but my mouse cursor has disappeared. I can restart the desktop ctrl-alt-backspace and get my mouse back.

Once every, say, 12 hours of use, I find that the mouse cursor spontaneously becomes unresponsive. The rest of the system is fine, and it responds to the keyboard, but the mouse does nothing. I'm pretty sure this isn't a problem with the mouse itself, because when it happens I've tried unplugging the mouse and plugging in a different one, and the problem persists. The problem doesn't seem to be correlated with any particular program or type of activity. I realize that this probably isn't much to go on. The next time it happens, is there at least anything I can do by way of diagnosis?
I just got into big troubles, or at least that's what i think, hopefully not. Well, I've been using ubuntu for a few months now and i love it. today the mouse cursor turned into a X and the windows doesn't have title bars, i can't swtich between apps using the alt+tab method, the show desktop button doesn't work, cannot minimize applications. long story short, i can't do anything.Wish i could provide anymore clues, but i have no idea how to diagnose.
Is there a somewhat straightforward way to get the name or pid of the application that is under the mouse's cursor? What I'm trying to do: This is just a "what if" at this point, I would like to run some script that would obtain the name/pid of any application that the mouse cursor is on, and use xte to assign different functions to different mouse buttons. For instance, assign a given button the Forward or Back function when the cursor is on a browser, but assign a scroll-left or scroll-right to the same button when it's on a spreadsheet. Is there any way to accomplish this, say, in a script that I could run at startup as a background process?
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Samsung X360 laptop which uses the Intel GMA4500MHD for graphics.After I login, the mouse cursor is not visible. It's hidden, though you can see things highlighted when you click the mouse buttons. The "workaround" is for me to launch a Terminal and start typing. That seems to make the text cursor appear and the mouse cursor as well.
I have got an interesting issue here. After having ubuntu running for awhile I will visit a certain website that maybe running a script or flash or something and then all of a sudden the screen goes blank for a second and then everything comes back except the mouse pointer is no longer visible. I can logout and then back in and the pointer is back. I wasn't going to ask about it but it is getting annoying having to log out and than back in. I am running a ati card with the iopen source ati driver. It is a VisionTek 9250 pci card with 128 mb of ram. I wonder if it is a combo of this, Adobe Flash and Compiz.
I currently have my computer connected to my main monitor, as well as my TV. I am using the Nvidia Driver and they are running as separate X screens. I have currently run into the problem that if my wife is watching videos on the TV while I am surfing the web or something on the other monitor, we really need 2 seperate cursors.Is there some way to have each X screen own a seperate cursor controlled exclusively by its own mouse? Or is there some other solution to this that anyone can think of?
