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.

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.

The Windows drivers of your peripherals must be off for some reason. You should try pluging in a wired keyboard and mouse to log into your Windows account, and reach the Device Manager (Startup menu, type "Device Manager" it'll come up). Then look for a device that has a yellow exclamation mark on it, that might be the culprit. You can try repairing it, or ...

recently I had an experience in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a Lenovo Miix700 Tablet and the swapiness. Maybe helps. I haven't a Swap-Partition so I reduced the swapiness factor to 0 that did the effect: sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=0 Then write the swapiness in sysctl.conf: sudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf adding that line at the end of the file: vm.swappiness=0

You could use the xinput --test-xi2 --root command (man xinput), where test-xi2 means logging input devices, and --root is to log from so called root window (a x11 specific concept). It would show you when and which key pressed in the system, mouse clicks, and even mouse motion coordinates. It solves your 1 and 3 points, you just need to parse these events. ...

In one sentence you say the keyboard "no longer functions", in another you say it's "partially functioning". Please clarify this. Also please grab the manual of your board and plug the devices into USB2.0 connectors. USB3.0 is proven to sometimes make problems even under Windows.

Consider using a proper editor for editing long commands. Set EDITOR to your favourite editor, for example, gedit in your .bashrc: EDITOR=gedit Then, when you want to edit a long command, press CtrlX CtrlE. Gedit should open up, with the current command line already in it. Edit it your heart's content, then save and quit. Bash will now run the new command....

I experience this issue after I copy or paste some text in a new, unsaved tab, using the keyboard shortcuts ( Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V ). Seems that by opening a dialog (for example the replace text dialog), fixes the issue. It also happened that I had the issue on a tab and opening a dialog didn't help. I suspected that some other tab was causing the issue so I ...

I was having problems with "click focus" as well, mainly with Chrome (not using system title bar) and Guake and what did the trick for me was setting from dconf-editor, org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences values as follows: auto-rise: on focus-mode: click focus-new-windows: strict (*) mouse-button-modifier: default (*) It seems to affect the focus behaviour ...

I believe that the program unetbootin silently fails to produce a valid bootable installation disk. Installing from the corrupted disk appears to succeed, but falls short of installing the full system, leading to hard to diagnose errors. Unetbootin may not work with all distros [e.g. 1 2 3], or all images of a given distro. I suspect it also may fail ...

This looks like a xorg-synaptics glitch. A way to solve it is to install libinput. It will replace synaptics Run sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-libinput and reboot. You can see this Q&A for some more details. Note: You will not be able to use GUI touchpad settings, because Ubuntu with unity DE does not fully support libinput yet. But you ...

You have installed libinput. It is used instead of xorg-synaptics to manage the touchpad. Unfortunately current Ubuntu with Unity DE does not have libinput settings GUI by default. unity-control-center can control only of xorg-synapics. You can use gnome-control-center for touchpad control. Run gnome-control-center mouse and you will have your settings. ...

I had the same problem in Kubuntu 16.04 and got rid of the trails by turning the Tearing / VSync to always redraw everything (System Settings > Display > Compositor). You get also rid of the trails by turning off OpenGL (also found in the Compositor settings), but then you lose hardware acceleration.
