The solution is one line: xmodmap -e "keycode 115 = Pointer_Button2" so now my Home key is doing left click and behave just as if I hit the mouse click and I can keep the key pressed and it highlights (copy) as expected. I also mapped my End key to be middle click, so I can use it to paste: xmodmap -e "keycode 110 = Pointer_Button1"

Thanks everybody, I finally found the guilty package. My laptop is a Dell Latitude E6330 which has a 12.04 ubuntu preinstalled that I kept updgrading periodically until 14.10 (until the touchpad started freezing). The xinput --list relevant output was ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST ...

Most desktops have some accessibility settings that will control the mouse with the keyboard already built-in, like XFCE has them in it's All Settings -> Accessibility -> Mouse -> Mouse Emulation, that uses the keyboard number pad so the 5 key does exactly what you're trying to do. If I recall, gnome, cinnamon and mate have similar features under something ...

Try reinstalling the Synaptics Touchpad drivers: sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-input-synaptics sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics These commands will remove the Synaptics driver (and all configs) from your system, and then reinstall a clean/fresh version.

I've got a Lenovo T440s with a similar touchpad. I haven't disabled it myself (although I prefer to use the trackpoint), but I used this blog by Who-t to configure mine. On that page it says: If you don't like touchpads at all and prefer to use the trackstick only, use Option "TouchpadOff" "1". This will disable everything but physical clicks on the ...

This screen freeze while using touchpad might be related to your issue. Recently (post #171) a patch was submitted to fix a race condition in x server. It should eventually be published through the usual update mechanism.

Solved: Turns out that only one of the 2 DVI ports on the card work with a DVI to VGA adapter for analog monitors—the 2nd DVI is DVI only. I am using 2 analog monitors so I need to swap one out to true digital DVI.

The bug (related to #662099) is still present with gedit 3.14.0. It is probably a problem with ibus and newer gnome versions. Just remove ibus sudo apt-get remove ibus and kill ibus pkill -o ibus-daemon

The problem is probably due to an incorrect reset of the graphic card/device after suspend and/or resume. In these cases, often performing the suspend/resume from a Virtual Console helps. (In the link above, you have detailed instructions).

This might not be the correct procedure but I managed to get it to work. I'll post it and you can do it if you're feeling adventurous. There are two ways I did this but I can't guarantee that they will work for you simply because I still consider myself a newbie and I did this by following other people's guides. WARNING: This includes compiling a custom ...

In general, Wireless mice and keyboards that have a USB dongle don't need any drivers, in any OS - they will just work. The drivers will not usually be essential, but will only add extra features such as a little configuration console (that runs all the time in the tray, consuming resources), or activate extra features on the device, usually unrelated ...

I found that the Unity game engine has compatibility problems with the Unity user interface. A solution that worked for me was to install XFCE: see How can i install XFCE along side unity? Be warned, this will change the default greeter to something much less attractive. Here are some notes on reverting that: Restore Unity Greeter

Try in terminal: killall unity-panel-service and see if they work. You can also press right button on the title to get those commands aswell. If that won't help, this could be something with your screen resolution. Try changing and see if they work.

Your USB is most probably going into autosuspend. Did you install TLP by any chance? If so, edit the configuration file using - sudo gedit /etc/default/tlp and change USB_AUTOSUSPEND=1 to USB_AUTOSUSPEND=0. Alternatively, if TLP isn't installed, to blacklist devices that are not working with USB autosuspend and enable it for all other devices - sudo ...

You can't override Unity's 3 and 4 fingers gestures just like that. From Touchégg's FAQ Unity reserves to itself gestures with 3 and 4 gestures making impossible to Touchégg make use of it.

Not an answer as such although I did inadvertently get rid of the second cursor! I am getting the same issue - intermittently - since I upgraded from 14.04 as well. Interestingly, the "solution" was to mouse over the image you posted! I opened it to see if it was the same issue as mine and just as I was noticing the top pointer appears to be the "active" ...

On my ubuntu 14.04 system, I seem to be able to accomplish scaling of the mouse sensitivity by adjusting 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration'. It doesn't accept a numerator/denominator (if you try to give it one, it just takes the numerator), but it does accept numbers less than 1 (the lower the number, the faster your pointer will go w.r.t. how fast you ...

When invoking xinput from udev, you have to set the XAUTHORITY variable: #!/bin/sh export DISPLAY=":0" export XAUTHORITY="/home/<user>/.Xauthority" /usr/bin/xinput set-prop "DLL063E:00 06CB:2934" "Device Enabled" $1 this variable is already set when you run the script directly from the console, but scripts invoked by udev (and other ...

[Note: I have Ubuntu 14.04 and this technique worked for me] I used tpconfig (no GUI) to reset my touchpad which got screwed up because I tried to tweak settings in "gpointing-device-settings" which is a GUI btw. you can do a sudo apt-get gpointing-device-settings and play with mouse/touchpad settings but mind you there is no option to reset to ...

Solved it straight away. Hope this helps someone in future.

xvkbd and xbindkeys Let's say we want to bind some mouse buttons to keyboard ones. The problem we will encounter is that we do not know how to emulate a key press. Here comes in handy xvkbd. We can use it along with xbindkeys. xbindkeys --defaults >> ~/.xbindkeysrc xbindkeys To restart xbindkeys type: pkill -f xbindkeys xbindkeys Here's example ...

So both are found (as lsusb shows), but don't seem to react (most of the time)... Maybe you can have a look at this page on the ArchLinux Wiki. Over at Phoronix the mouse seems to work without problem, so maybe give it a try without the keyboard connected (if you haven't already done so).

sorry i confused your question, usually i press ctrl+alt+F1 for login to cli mode, but when your keyboard isn't working how to going there. Hmm, maybe you want to change your first boot to command line mode you can get it here but thats work after boot option menu entered [i mean grub menu].

I think is is a problem with BlueZ and Bluetooth 4.0 low power devices. This past week I tried the Microsoft Arc Touch mouse which is Bluetooth 4.0 and although it would pair its type showed up as Unknown and obviously was not useable as a mouse. I then bought & tried the Lenovo N700 which again is Bluetooth 4.0 and same problem as the Microsoft Mouse. ...

Try vokoscreen. To install, download the file from the vokoscreen website, extract it, go into the Ubuntu folder, choose your version, and then your architecture. Once that is done, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to the correct folder, and run the command(s) below: sudo dpkg -i <file_name.deb>

Are you using a wireless mouse? If so check the owner's manual-- the mouse probably has a time-activated power-save mode that switches it off to save battery, and the only way to reactivate the mouse its to click one of the buttons.

In linux, in general, two-finger tap is emulating a right-mouse-button click in the current mouse position. Do you not want the right mouse button emulation? Anyway, you can easily configure what you asked if using KDE, with its internal system of global hotkeys. Default Ubuntu desktop, Unity, does not allow you to configure a lot.

(edit: I'm sorry, this is really embarrassing, but I simply had the wrong keyboard layout. I had it set to english, when it should have been english-macintosh.) This may not be a good answer, but it will get the job done until you learn more about the keyboard layouts and stuff.

Are you making sure to run dconf-editor as the user you wish to apply these changes to? As in -- if you want to run these changes during your normal, every-day use of Ubuntu, just run dconf-editor as that user (so without running it as sudo).

If I recall correctly, I've noticed this happening on Utopic, but not on Trusty. I use AMD hardware (my desktop uses either a HD 2400 PRO or a HD 7850; laptop uses a 7660G + 7670M on muxless; both use oibaf's PPA and relatively up-to-date kernels (3.18rc1 atm)). I've seen it happen on both computers.
