See http://askubuntu.com/a/501024/67335. My thinking is if you can write a shell script which gives you the information you want, then run indicator-sysmonitor and have it call your script.

Found a solution that works perfectly as long as you don't use gestures or scrolling etc Adding the line "psmouse.proto=bare" to the kernel cmd line on boot will, as I understand, emulate the basic moving and clicking tap to click etc using generic ps2 mouse drivers for the touchpad. There appears to be no drivers or support for the touchpads use in many ...

I had the same problem but found a solution by changing my BIOS settings of my Lenovo Flex 15 Easypad. I had to change the BIOS-setting "UEFI optimized for Windows 8" (was preinstalled on this laptop, I erased it and installed Lubuntu 14.04) to "Other OS". That did the trick for me.

As mentioned in this question's answers: You should update to the latest VirtualBox and extension pack, and reinstall vbox addition. Everything works fine after it, tested minute ago. This is the correct way to fix this problem without losing functionality, although sometimes, disabling mouse integration is the only way to go.

I have a Logitech mouse with 9 buttons, and pressing the "middle button" (#2) involves clicking the scroll wheel. I dislike this because I'm clumsy and typically end up scrolling the window I'm in when I try to click the wheel. So I wanted to automatically remap the top side button (#9 in this case) to the middle button (#2). I also wanted to map the bottom ...

You might need to edit your xorg.conf file, which lives in the /etc/X11 directory. Try adding a line in the config file that says: Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "1" There are lots of customizations you can make to your touchpad config using that xorg.conf document. Check out all the possibilities at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad ...

It predates Ubuntu and Debian, and the design decision in these OSes has been, as far as I can tell, lack of a contrary design to change historical X-Windows behavior. I realize I'm responding to an old question, but I'm talking about the 80s and 90s, so I think that's fitting. See also Jeff Atwood's post at Codinghorror.com. (2008, sheesh! Practically ...

There is a software bug and as of June 2014 there is no fix for it. It does not happen on all mice modles. My logitech mice are fine but most other fail no matter what you do.

I believe that this is a BIOS feature called USB mouse support (Not sure about the name) , if it is enabled it will provide power to the USB mouse as long as the power cable is connected to the power supply. but I'm not sure of the name of the feature, play around with you BIOS options you will find it.

This is a "problem" of your motherboard supplying power even when computer is shutdown. I had the same with my old one. My keyboard was on all the time, as well as my mouse. No matter if computer was shut down or sleeping.

It appears that the mouse module becomes non-functional, and needs to be reloaded. My solution was to reload the mouse module. This makes my touchpad work again. Unfortunately you need sudo to do this. sudo modprobe -r psmouse && sudo modprobe psmouse

In previous versions of Ubuntu I used to enable middle mouse emulation with gpointing-device-settings. The package exists for 14.04 as well, so I guess it still works: sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings gpointing-device-settings Update: gpointing-device-settings crashes on 14.04 for me. But I found a workaround to manually enable middle mouse ...

The xinput solution did not work for me. I instead followed the instructions in this thread. Edit edit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf Add Option "Ignore" "on" to the end of touchscreen section Reboot For the record (Google), I have a Samsung Series 7 and my touch screen was listed as ELAN Touchscreen in xinput.
