Here's what you do. (Keep your WiFi enabled during the following process) Mount the Ubuntu installation ISO image or the CD which you used for this installation. Browse the CD for pool/main/d/dkms/dkms-x.x.x.x-x_ubuntu.deb. (this is basically used to add modules/drivers to the kernel dynamically). Double click and install it. Now go to ...

1. The command to type a phrase You can do that by using xdotool, which is not on your system by default. Install it first: sudo apt-get install xdotool Then the command to (literally) type a text phrase is: xdotool type 'This is a test to see if all works fine. If it works this text is typed.' The text will be typed in the frontmost window. Adding ...

Is it an optical mouse? Some surfaces (usually reflective ones such as glass, or gloss coated paper materials, etc) seem to interfere with the light used by the mouse.

I have installed Polar Cursor Theme from KDE-look.org, a kind of minimalistic cursor theme with KDE touch. But I am using this cursor theme on Xubuntu for myself. For the loading animation, the cursor changes to a spinning disc with a colored slit (orange, blue or green for choices), like slot screw drive. I recommend this cursor theme for minimalists whom ...

Solution - automatic Thanks to Esamo and his work. On start add AUTO triggers for connecting mouse. For example create file in: /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules Fill up with this content: (replace %USER% with your user name) ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="input", KERNEL=="mouse[1-9]", ENV{DISPLAY}=":0",ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/%USER%/.Xauthority", ...

Toggle between screens and (optionally) set focus on the (full screen) window The script below will toggle (and "focus") between the left and the right screen if both screens are more or less center- or top aligned, and more or less of the same vertical resolution. I assume in practically all situations of a left/right screen setup it will work. The ...

I've had that problem with Kubuntu ever since 14.04 or so, I had the issue where I wanted to triple click to highlight a line and would have to instead double click and hold on the third click for the line to highlight. I had a little success in adjusting the speed at which double-click is registered in the mouse/touchpad settings, I slowed mine down a ...

Go into a terminal and type in 'xinput list', see if a touchpad is listed. if not, it hasn't been detected. If it is there, however, there may be some configuring to do.

I've narrowed it down to a hardware problem. Tried with a much more basic mouse, and so far it works. The mice I've tried before have both been fairly complex gaming mouses, with speed features and extra buttons. I suspect this has something to do with it, since I've run across other mentioning this as a source of problems. I am, however, far from sure.

I use Azenis. It's a animated one that's not too animated. You can find more at gnome-look.org and clicking on x11 cursor themes.

I managed to configure the "left edge swipe" and "right edge swipe" gestures using xbindkeys; this can probably apply also to the two finger swipes, but I did not bother with those as I find them difficult to perform anyway. This is my .xbindkeysrc #Right edge swipe (Send Alt+F2) "xte 'keydown Alt_L' 'key F2' 'keyup Alt_L'" ...

This is not straightforward. It is however possible using a bit of programming to make a command line filter to prove the concept. For instance in Python (see below). This filter would take the standard input (i.e. your keyboard) and pass it on to standard output. It must also capture mouse data and when it sees scroll wheel data add arrow up or down to ...

grml-rescueboot This package provides a script for update-grub which looks for Grml ISO images in /boot/grml and automatically adds an entry for each image. The purpose is to use one of those images to boot a Grml rescue system without using a CD or USB stick. Download the ISO. Ubuntu CD/DVDs can be downloaded from the official Ubuntu site: Ubuntu Download ...

If you have an sd slot or a dvd, both of those can be made bootable pretty easily. Assuming you don't have either of these the best way would be to ssh into your computer from another and install it on a system that does have a mouse. While I'm sure what you are asking does have a solution, installing from another computer is probably easier.

For reasons I don't understand it seems that Helio's answer only sometimes worked for me. Various other threads have made me think there is some conflict between different config files. Anyway, here's a quick solution that worked for me. Might help someone else: Edit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf And comment out the option in this part: # ...

I tried to get a Logitech mouse/keyboard to work - same thing, works fine in windows but not in ubuntu. After 2 months of messing with it and finding no resolution on here, I have to fall back to the Logitech response (also took them 2 months to figure it out) and that is "Logitech products do not work with Linux." That was the final answer from their tech ...

This is NOT a brand recommendation, but a valuable data point nonetheless... I spent 2 months with a Logitech K350 and M350 wireless mouse/keyboard combo; they worked OK, but the keyboard power switch had to be cycled at every boot. Worked fine in the bios, worked fine in windows, but after 14.04 booted, I had no keyboard until I switched it off and back ...

If you installed ALL packages out there, the chance of having conflicts is probably over a 100% several ten times over, which is likely to be the cause of your issue. Undoing installs is a bit cumbersome. To find all the packages you installed (many thousands probably), do tail -n4 /var/log/apt/history.log. The third line contains all the package you last ...

I think I've found the root of the problem, my suspicion was right, I tried installing ubuntu 12.04 again and sure enough, the version stated at grub boot screen is 3.14.0-32 generic and the version that modprobe is trying to find is at 3.2.0-23 generic so my suspicion was right, now this is the cause of my problem but just raises more questions so I'm going ...

Had the same problem here as well on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Solution 1: Turning off Auto-hide (System Settings -> Appearance -> Behavior -> Auto-hide the Launcher) Solution 2: Logging off and on again Would like to know the reason for the problem, however.

I've tried pretty much all fixes I could google (including the other answers to this question), but the only thing that helped was to install the hardware enablement stack: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-lts-utopic \ libegl1-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-utopic \ ...

Expanding a previous comment from @dk-bose, xfce4-screenshooter does have an option to capture the mouse pointer. Using xubuntu-14.04, pressing PrintScreen doesn't capture the mouse pointer, you have to start xfce4-screenshooter and enable the Capture the mouse pointer option before doing the capture.

The Same issue goes for the Anywhere MX 2. I assume since they are both new then that they might be using similar hardware parts for the bluetooth connection. I use solaar for both my mx master and mx anywhere 2 via the logitech unifying receiver. Its not ideal, but it works for now. Logitech needs to recognize the Linux community and start issuing drivers ...

There is some clean solution that works on Ubuntu 14.04. I obtained it by running gnome-tweak-tool -v -d.
