Unfortunately the xorg-input driver has three and four finger detection disabled. In order to re-enable them you will have to patch the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics driver. http://mangel312.blogspot.com/2015/02/enable-multitouch-on-dell-xps-13-9333.html

Probably the touchpad activating. Try this: System Settings => Hardware => Input Devices => Touchpad => Taps and change 'One Finger' under 'Mouse Click Emulation' to 'No action'

Ok I found the solution somewhere, which I am putting here for reference and help for someone. To fix this you have to reboot with another kernel version or reinstall the needed kernel package: apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-3.13.0--generic So I have rebooted with previous kernel, where networking was working, but not the mouse, but after ...

Confirmed. Using standard bluetooth packages editing the pin-code-database.xml file also enabled the reconnection of a Lenovo Thinkpad Bluetooth Laser mouse after system reboot. Here's the setting I used: <device oui="F0:65:DD:" type="mouse" name="ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser Mouse" pin="0000"/>

While the above imwheel suggestions helped a bit, I found that removing the mechanical scroll-clicking mechanism made my mouse wheel much more pleasant to use -- not only removing the click, but making it faster and more precise to control! And it only took 3 minutes - check out these instructions: ...

Found the problem: since the machine is a laptop, turning off the feature "Disable Trackpad when typing" in settings > keyboard did the trick. Nevertheless I think this is a bug. Can anyone give me advice where to report? Thanks!

I had the same issue and none of the other fixes worked. What ended up working, I don't know why, was to put a program into the Windows Startup folder. In an attempt to do something I put the installer for the network driver into the startup folder, as well as putting a folder that had some items the installer needed. When I rebooted the keyboard and mouse ...

It's because of the menu. ntrrgc is right, but you have to put the launcher bar all to the right, not in each display. That fixes the stick problem and is worse, when you have that menu in both displays and with the option hide menu bar.

The bug is reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/eog/+bug/1406045 (reported on the same day as your post.. so someone must have read your post and reported it) Thanks for trying to contribute a bug report! Keep up the good work. Next time, just make sure you get the package name exactly right. The package name can sometimes be ...

Reboot your PC, enter on the BIOS Setup, search for "USB legacy support" (ASUS Motherboards you can find on "advanced settings") and set as "enabled". Check your motherboard manual or the vendor website. I hope it can help you.

I have a similar issue and I have developed a different solution. I've written a Python script that listens for udev events and runs some commands whenever a device is plugged or unplugged. In my case, one of the commands disables mouse acceleration. I've choosen this solution because it does not require root permissions, and thus can be applied on any ...

I don't have enough rep to comment unfortunately, you simply open the startup applications app and add the command as /usr/bin/xinput --set-prop "8" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5. Then, at login the script will be run.

I think I found the answer, but not sure how to make it permanent(I think it resets on reboot?) First, do the above xinput list and get the id of your device. Not sure why, but there are 2 mice coming up with id=8 and id=10. I picked 8, and it worked. I ran the following line xinput --set-prop "8" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5, with the value of ...

I did find a solution to this problem. I installed Windows in a virtual machine, attached the USB mouse device to the VM, then traced the USB traffic with Wireshark and isolated the control command that the official Logitech driver used to set the polling rate. (This was quite helpful in pointing me in the right direction: ...

The alias you have tried alias googleearth='LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 googleearth' should work, maybe you did this: alias googleearth='LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 googleearth' ; googleearth or you used the alias in a script or in a fuction. Nothing of this works. If it still doesn't work for you, try creating a function instead of an alias. Don't forget to ...

Okay, I was just narrowing down solutions here, because there are some known solutions for trackpads with similar "non-clicking" issues. Have you tried clicking on "System Settings", then "Software & Updates", then clicking on the "Additional Drivers" tab? Wait for it to search the available drivers, and enable any keyboard/mouse driver that needs to be ...

I think it depends on how your touchpad is recognized - it looks the same with my HP Envy x360 15'. You will have more GUI options with gpointing-device-settings or Touchpad-indicator sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install touchpad-indicator.

I had the same problem with a Logitech G302. Planetary annihilation mouse lag problem Unfortunately it seems that the Logitech mouse does not support reducing the mouse polling rate. But if it is really necessary you can reduce it by hardware by connecting your mouse to a slower usb port. Using evhz, I noticed the mouse polling rate reduced from 1000Hz ...

I've also experienced this problem in a Sony VAIO using Elementary OS Freya 2.0 after downgrading my graphics stack due to 'drag and drop' and visual flikering issues. I solve this by using (from here): sudo apt-get install --install-recommends xserver-xorg And to solve the Touchpad Issue I've installed/reinstalled the Touchpad driver as mentioned by ...

As far as I know, it is not possible to sync your mouse settings. Your best shot is to just increase your ubuntu mouse sensitivity to match that of Windows 7's lowest and get used to it. Sorry, I wish there was more to it but you simply can't. :(

when you boot from win 7 try to plug out both mouse and keyboard & plug them again at same port. If it doesn’t solve your problem then try different port.

OPs solution: -SOLUTION- Well I found where the problem lies. It turns out that I must have accidentally used the "function key + F9" which turns on/off the Touchpad. Sorry for all the trouble, but thank you everyone for your help.

Modern mouse devices have more than one id when you run query xinput list. This script will cover those devices as well but first proper id must be determined. The selection is based on difference between outputs of xinput query-state <id> command and assumption that one id will have some key 245 in output, hence the line: moid0=$(xinput query-state ...

You can fix it by switching off i2c_hid and setting nopnp in boot parameters this way Run sudo gedit /etc/default/grub In the open window edit line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" it should look this way GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i8042.nopnp" Save file and run sudo update-grub Run echo "blacklist i2c_hid" | sudo tee ...

Not sure if you already fixed this, but you will need to blacklist i2c-hid. So all you will need to do is open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf as super user and add 'blacklist i2c-hid' without the quotes towards the end of the file. Reboot and your touchpad will work. source: ...

I found the problem and fixed it- apparently my BIOS was using USB 2.0 protocols to access USB drives but after Ubuntu took over they were using USB 3.0 protocols, which made a mess. Came upon the solution by fluke actually- was just looking in my BIOS setup and there it was. It's useful when using external DVD reader to install OS, but becomes a hassle ...
