xSwipe should be able to help you. It is able to bind several multi-touch gestures to keybindings (like CTRL+ALT+arrow_keys). There is one issue with it that is uses older synclient and requires option -m to be availible. Fix to that is to install forked synaptic drivers (instructions)

Problem was I didn't have an agent registered. Normally UI should do it. A quick solution is to run: bluez-simple-agent Then, try to pair it again. Thanks to Szymon Janc.

But I don know why you got the Issue. I have a Saitek Cyborg R.A.T 7 Contagion and I only had to connect it and it worked fine. Without creating any xorg.conf file ;)

Yes, these error occurs because there is no xorg.conf in the directory /etc/X11/. You have to create a file or download it from somewhere else.Then you have to edit the file like you tried before. To make your changes work, you have to restart your xserver by using this command sudo restart lightdm

You can launch the Synergy command from the Terminal through nice, like so: nice --adjustment=-20 Synergy [arguments] When setting the adjustment parameter, a lower value means a higher priority. Possible priority values are between -20 and 19. You will have to make sure you replace the Synergy above with the correct path to launch it.

So I kept looking around and the problem seems to have been the type of mouse I have. I found a thread on the Ubuntu forums by a user with a similar mouse having a problem that sounded like mine. In the thread it was suggested to (create and) edit the /ect/X11/xorg.conf files with the following: Section "InputClass" Identifier "Mouse Remap" ...

Go in settings -> Display, and you will probably see two active monitors: disable the one which is unknown and click apply.

This sounds more like an hardware problem, given how a quick Google search gives me some results of more people complaining about this problem, both on Linux and Windows alike. Some solutions include: Try another mouse. Your mouse may be faulty and be suffering from some internal interference. You can test if it's your mouse fault my testing it in other ...

Don't want to resurrect an old question but I had this same issue in Arch and now in Ubuntu 14.04. I've been able to find a permanent work around on both systems. For those Googling for a solution this is what worked for me. Your mileage may vary. For Ubuntu I follow instruction from the BluetoothSetup wiki page specifically the instruction for 11.04.

Following the instructions in this answer, find the buttons that should be switched. If 11 and 3 need to be switched, you switch them in the sequence like this: input set-button-map id# 1 2 11 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3 12 If this works, you need to make it run automatically. As explained in this question, you can add the command to the end of ~/.profile (in your ...

What you need is kmousetool.According to man kmousetool, KMouseTool clicks the mouse whenever the mouse cursor pauses briefly. KMouseTool can also be configured to wait for a specified time for a drag to begin, before unclicking the mouse. This way, you can use it for drag and drop operations as well. To install kmousetool, open a ...

Okay, so as Mr. DNA said, It was BIOS related. Here is how I ended up fixing it: I downloaded BIOS version 1.52 Make sure you are downloading that version. Download it from http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?&DocID=DS032118 it will be on the bottom of the page, so scroll down. Burn the iso to a CD, a USB will not work, it has to be ...

You can't emulate more than 3 buttons in VirtualBox and VMware. This is because it presents to the guest system an (super) standard 3-button mouse. It could be possible if they like, but right now the answer is no. So, why it works in Windows? Because the Linux and Windows implementations follow different roadmap, and "each front-end has its own way of ...

I tried logging in as root, as opposed to the regular user I was logging in before, and everything was working fine. This seemed to indicate that it was more of a configuration issue than an xfce4 corruption. Therefore I logged in again as the regular user that had the problem and deleted the configuration folder, after terminating xfce4 process: mv ...

Xubuntu is great I highly recommend xfce over Unity. But Xubuntu uses xfce4 which has its own key shortcut mappings which are not controlled by "Ubuntu" as it is on the Unity desktop. There may be one in Settings > keyboard > shortcuts or Settings > Windows > Keyboard Shortcuts for disabling touchpad (I cannot verify this right now), or you can map whichever ...

To get extra mouse buttons to work under VMware, edit configfile.vmx (append following lines): mouse.vusb.enable = "TRUE" mouse.vusb.useBasicMouse = "FALSE"

Only way I can get it working is to use the VMware Player's "Removable Devices" menu to connect it to the VM, but that completely removes your ability to use it on the host Ubuntu machine. I hope someone can come up with a better solution. Since this is the only answer that actually works with Ubuntu at the time of posting, I'll expand a little bit on how ...

I found that the startup command in the other answer only works if the id is a two digit number. Here are my modifications which should work for both one and two digit numbers: In Startup Applications bash -c "for id in `/usr/bin/xinput list | /bin/grep 'USB Mouse' | /bin/grep -o id=[0-9][0-9]*`; do xinput set-button-map ${id:3} 3 2 1; done;"

For keybindings, you can download xbindkeys (similar process to the answer to this question). As far as the headset, I have a G930 and i use Debian Linux. It registers as two devices, one as a stereo headset and the other as a 5.1 surround sound. Both modes work perfectly in Linux. It is true that Logitech provides no driver support on Linux, but as I ...

You may want to reconsider your approach on using Ubuntu as your main OS. Ubuntu is an Open Source OS based on Debian. This makes it depend on voluntary free contributions from developers all around the world. It is us not them who build the OS. Drivers are often provided for free from the manufacturers of hardware but sadly not all manufacturers ...

So since the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse isn't registering button presses for the super and swipe gestures, but instead is registering key presses, I used the 'xautomation' and 'xbindkeys' packages to listen for those key presses and send Ctrl+Alt+Right/Left to switch between workspaces. It's not an ideal solution, but it works like 8 out of 10 times. ...

I knew exactly what your problem was before your comment because I also own a RAT and took me forever to figure out what to google for. Basically what you need to do is manually map all the buttons in the xorg. Here is the link to the solution. What is happening is your RAT needs a driver and linux isn't taking the button inputs correctly. Your symptom is ...

From side scrolling to both buttons. From zooming to double clicking. The distance is the ...
