I too tried to look for a clean solution to this problem, but ended up going for a surprisingly effective work-around. If you have xsel installed, you can clear the contents of the primary paste buffer (the one used by the middle mouse) with xsel -p -c. You can then create a keyboard shortcut that executes this command, and map it to any unused keys (in my ...

Well, it's been several days since I removed a short USB cable extension I had connected from the computer's USB-2 port to the cable from the old passive USB hub, and through several reboots and suspends, I've had no more problems I hope this might be helpful for others, as I've seen a bunch of very similar, or even duplicate, situations both here and ...

Go to System Settings -> Mouse and Touchpad There should be settings for pointer speed for both touchpad and mouse.

1) Restart ‘X’ If the whole system comes to a freeze and does not accept any keyboard or mouse input, try to restart ‘X’ by pressing ‘Ctrl + Alt + Backspace‘. This will kill all processes and log you out. If this works, it should bring you to the login screen again. 2) Use MagicSys Key to kill all processes If the crash is so serious that Ctrl + Alt + ...

With the new X.org pointer acceleration settings, everything can be configured nicely in an /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/52-trackpoint-tweaks.conf file (or similarly named – on Ubuntu, you have to create directory and file, but the mechanism works). The file should have this content: Section "InputClass" Identifier "Trackpoint tweaks" MatchProduct ...

I wouldn't count this as an answer, and I don't have the rep to comment, but if you haven't seen it already, this page and this other question might at least help get you going in the right direction. I'm not sure what the problem is exactly, but if it's an issue within Ubuntu, you may be able to write a script to remap the middle mouse button, and if it's ...

Problem is with Bluez. Same issue exists on Debian 7.8 (bluez package 4.99-2). On Debian 8.0 RC1 (bluez package 5.23-2) it works, however still some warning shown for mouse: [ 43.710930] Bluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.2 [ 43.710940] Bluetooth: HIDP socket layer initialized [ 43.852388] hid-generic 0005:046D:B010.0001: unknown main ...

You can press the F2 key on your Keyboard after clicking on the file you want to Rename. Just a reminder, as some keyboards have take over the F1-keys by the FN key, therefore you might have to press FN + F2. Good Luck!

System-wide, on ThinkPads On IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads that have a Trackpoint (red mini-joystick dot in the middle of the keyboard), a similar mechanism can be configured system-wide. It is called "mouse wheel emulation". With this, pressing the middle mouse button and pushing the trackpoint in any direction will scroll up / down / left / right. To configure ...

As of Lubuntu 14.04, the config file format and answer is now slightly different from @SWrobel's answer: Remove the following lines from ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml: <mousebind button="Up" action="Click"> <action name="GoToDesktop"> <to>previous</to> </action> </mousebind> <mousebind button="Down" ...

It's a Xserver-Xorg-Video-Intel Package BUG. Fixed upstream apparently though. Still waiting for the fix to land in 14.10.

I found a nice solution using xubuntu 14.10 (I think this is nice because it doesn't require tap to click to be enabled, I don't like tap to click) First you need to install xdotool sudo apt-get install xdotool Then write a bash script to send the middle mouse click. Your going to want to write something like this #!/bin/bash xdotool mousedown 2; ...

I actually found the issue to this problem and thought I'd do the right thing and post it. It would seem that the positioning of the bluetooth receiver in particular USB ports had an impact with the reception between the keyboard/mouse (probably something to do with the fact that it's a mini-pc and the processor and other radio affecting devices are situated ...

The question literally Detecting mouse movement, can be done with several tools. Two examples: Using xdotool in a script: [you'd need xdotool to be installed]: sudo apt-get install xdotool Compare (in a loop) two mouse positions, with a time interval: The command to get the mouseposition from xdotool: $ xdotool getmouselocation x:1449 y:137 screen:0 ...

I think I found a solution for this. I was having the same issue, unplugging and plugging the second monitor did nothing to solve to problem in a long term, so I tried other options regarding configuration. I noticed that my laptop had a default resolution of 1366x768 and usually the second monitor has less than that. With those values the problem will be ...

What you're asking for is to have percentages displayed instead of progress bars at all time instead of percentages with low battery warnings! That is something for the new version (here is a link to the new User Interface) so unfortunately not available right now. But looking at the activity of the project, they could use an additional hand, so if you're ...

I did not get that to work either, i found it easyer to just plug in a usb mouse/kb afterwards once its installed bluetooth kb worked for me.

This is not an answer, per se, although it does have an easier workaround to recover. I started having this same (I believe) problem with 14.04. It seems like the current active window works OK, but won't close or move, and other windows won't work at all with the mouse. Keyboard works fine. If I close the working window, and reopen, it no longer works. ...

Touchpad driver problem? I had a problem with my touchpad on a Dell Latitude 3340 with Ubuntu 12.04 preinstalled by Dell. My touchpad was not recognized as a touchpad. Funny that Dell sells stuff that are supposed to work out of the box, but they don't. After a lot of searching, trial and error I got it fixed with these instructions: ...

I had a similar problem - after a kernel update, the display comes up fine and the cursor is invisible though it does work - I can move things around if I'm very careful. This was solved by simply logging out and back in.

Running the configuration software in Wine doesn't help, because it expects the Windows hardware drivers to be present. You will need to find working Linux drivers for your device. Generally speaking, anything that involves direct hardware or driver access doesn't work in Wine.

This works for me when Ubuntu Mate 14.10 corrupts my mouse cursor. It doesn't require a restart. Ctrl+Alt+F2 Ctrl+Alt+F7 I always get this bug when dragging an image with Eye of Mate image viewer, and a TTY switch makes it go away. Restarting also works, but changing the cursor in the appearance settings does not.

No, it's not possible without customizing drivers of your X environment. There should be configuration-change methods to do what you want.

Zen and mouse maintenance. Seems many are having a problem with the mouse double clicking when one click is applied. The mouse button is a micro switch. The fact of life is that switch contacts bounce. They don’t actually bounce but rub. We will call it bounce anyway. For some reason the programmers have dropped the ball on this one. A wait loop of ...

How to adjust mouse speed in KDE without enabling mouse acceleration and only using the settigns dialog (no console, no config files) This is a colloquial summary of exhuma's answer, don't forget to upvote it. In KDE, mouse acceleration is not logarithmic. That is, it has two constant mouse speeds: non-accelerated and accelerated. It ...

Simply: No, unless you change the alignment of your screens (System settings > "screens", drag the left screen up), but then you would have the same problem at the bottom. In Unity (/Compiz), both screens together are seen as one big desktop/viewport. From that point of view, it would be undesirable behavior as well; the mouse would either make a weird ...

Solution mentioned here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1696794 Some MS mice have a scrollwheel bug. Try unplugging (wait a few seconds) then replugging usb cable.

A search for a similar problem brought me here. Left mouse click doesn't work anymore, neither on the mouse itself nor on touch pad. In my case it is a matter of a bluetooth mouse. My solution was to remove the mouse from the list of paired bluetooth devices (Dash → Bluetooth), switch off the mouse and re-pair it after a reboot.

Something got scrambled during transmission, update, or there is an error in the update! Well is it not wonderfull that our Ubuntu let us get back to a working konfiguration!

Try it again but remove this part name="Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse" If it's not that then you probably have the wrong OUI. I believe it's the first half of your bluetooth mouse's address. OUI stands for Organizational Unique Identifier. Basically the first half of your MAC address says it's made by Microsoft, though mice from the same company may have ...
