Had that problem the other day. I switched to another terminal (ctrl + alt + F1) and then came back to the current window (ctrl + alt + F7). It did the trick for me. My 2 cents

This problem is solved now because the new kernel version support Yoga 900. I am using 4.6.0-0 and it is working fine. No need to recompile the kernel :)

This bug is fixed in Chrome 52: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/Xh9GV7jNymo https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=609748 Until then, the 'solution' I use is to place one finger on the trackpad before the other. Then you can scroll without jumping.

You may want to try using the script described by Eli Billauer. The script worked for me up until recently. I am using a USB mouse and keyboard, with a desktop computer (no trackpad). I made a small modification (included ehci-pci interface in addition to xhci), so I'm going to post the exact script that I'm using here so you can compare with what Eli does. ...

The problem was my mouse, the Mad Catz MMO 7. The fix was to create "xorg.conf" in /etc/X11 and then edit it to contain: Section "InputClass" Identifier "Mouse Remap" MatchProduct "Mad Catz Mad Catz M.M.O.7 Mouse|M.M.O.7" MatchIsPointer "true" MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*" Option "Buttons" "24" Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 0 0 8 9 10 11 12 ...

The middle mouse button is usually used for something other than paste. Did you modify it to operate differently? Usually you would use the right mouse button to do a paste. Am I missing something else here? Cheers, Al

I found a workable answer over at the stackexchange thread http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/9973/configuring-mouse-for-rightleft-button-simulating-middle-click-for-copy-paste. It involves using the command xinput set-prop, specifically xinput set-prop "$device_name_or_number" "Evdev Middle Button Emulation" 1 Once I'd done that, the middle mouse ...

Yes, unfortunately click-lock is still not available. All the more frustrating is that an announcement was made, prior to the release of 16.04 LTS, that this feature should be available. Apparently it had been an oversight for all these versions over all these years that this basic, core functionality had been left out. My understanding is that they thought ...

I use Touchpad-Indicator, a very flexible app. It is not available from Ubuntu repositories, so you need to add one manually. Latest version: add the repository with sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao Then, install as usual: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install touchpad-indicator To obtain desired option (disable touchpad while typing), ...

I had a similar problem. For no reason the wireless/usb mouse on my laptop started acting strangely - the cursor would move but clicks did not respond. I found this page on superuser - answer 10 that recommended reinstalling inputattach. That worked for me.

Razercfg comes with a command-line configuration tool. I have a Deathadder too, and the configuration is resulotion number 1 for example. (There are 5 in total, so you can change 1 to whatever you want) The command is: razercfg -r 1 This will use the default profile and the default mouse, so if you have several profiles or several razer devices you will ...

From the CLI, UPower can do this: $ upower --dump Device: /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/mouse_0000o0000o0000x0000 native-path: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb3/3-9/3-9.4/3-9.4:1.2/0000:0000:0000.0000/0000:0000:0000.0000 vendor: Logitech, Inc. model: Anywhere MX serial: 00000000 power ...

For me, the fix was to clean the inside of the mouse. The proper way to do this is to carefully take it apart and remove hair and dust that had collected near the sensor of the mouse wheel. I just blowed really hard into the gap around the wheel. It worked immediately.

Yes it does, however it is not quite plug and play. You have to essentially reboot the devices, the easiest way being to cut the power by removing a battery and replacing it. Doing this on both the keyboard and mouse in the K220 gets it working for me everytime.

While trying everything again, I seem to have found a combination of kernel instructions that works. I had tried all 6 or 7 together, and each one individually, but not this particular combination of three arguments. I added just these three: i8042.noloop i8042.nopnp i8042.reset to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" in the file: /etc/default/grub ...

Open up a terminal and enter the following command: echo xmodmap -e \"pointer = 3 2 1\" 2\> /dev/null >> ~/.xprofile Then when you log in the buttons will be swapped.

I'm assuming you have a loser mouse. This is a common issue when your computer is located in a dusty environment, or near other possible sources of pollution, like spider cobwebs. Unplug the mouse. Turn it over. Look inside the hole(using light if needed) and confirm that there is pollution inside, corrupting the input. Use air or something else to get rid ...

You can modify certain parameters of the mouse driver permanently, i.e. accross reboots. First list Xorg input devices. Results are for my present machine and will be different in yr case. List Xorg session input devices in terminal (CRTL-ALT+T): $ xinput --list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST ...

Well, On Ubuntustudio 16.04, I found out that if I get the mouse to hover the button for the app menu, and start to browse, it comes right back no problem!!

Searching got me to this article by Phoronix from 2015: Libratbag currently has partial support for the Logitech HID++ 1.0 (G500, G5) and HID++ 2.0 protocols (G303), the Etekcity Scroll Alpha, Roccat Kone XTD, the G5, G9, and M705. So that led me to this libratbag blog and the libratbag project page and also to this page that lists mice. Logitech ...

I have Cooler Master Sentinel Advance 2 mice. For mice full configuration I use their official tool using Windows in Virtualbox and gave access to my USB ports. I use this even for scanner at work cause in Linux it gave me a headache (after so many tries and configurations scanner don't want to work in Ubuntu) . So that's my advice.

... with an update to VBox 5.0.24 r108355 my "pointing device" setting in the "motherboard" tab changed to "USB tablet" ... I changed it back to PS/2 mouse and everything was fine again ... host: windows 10 guest: ubuntu 14.04

It would appear that the Logitech software profiles that were stored on the mouse were to blame. For some reason, on a Windows PC and OSX, this mouse worked fine with the standard profile. But when I plug it into my Ubuntu laptop, it defaulted to a weird profile that I made for gaming. I deleted that profile, and now my mouse works.
