I too got myself a Magic Mouse 2 about 6 weeks ago. You can teach Linux to recognise the Magic Mouse 2 and load the hid_magicmouse module (as it would for the original Magic Mouse and Trackpad) by modifying the udev and modprobe configs. The touch protocols have changed from the MM1 so the MM2 is still just a 2-button device at this time. In my spare time, I ...

After a lot of pain, I managed to create a key map that does something useful. First a couple of notes (I cannot comment yet) on the previous answer: the fixMouse script provided by Mr back-up does not work, because sometimes the Keyboard entry of the mouse appears with the wrong name in xinput, i.e. in my case it shows: ⎡ Virtual core pointer ...

Looks like there is an app out there called Synergy. I'm just discovering this, so I know nothing about it. I just stumbled across this article: http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/share-mouse-and-keyboard-with-your-windows-linux-machines-with-synergy-1-7-1

You can play with setting different values to different trackpoint properties and maybe compare props of your Lenovo trackpoint with Dell's. Use the command xinput list to see all input devices and their IDs. Then use xinput list-props $ID to see what the device is capable of and xinput set-prop $ID $PropID $value. I wrote some examples in another topic, but ...

1) Go into /dev/input/ and query the input devices that are most likely to correspond to your mouse, with the terminal cmd: $ udevadm info --query=all --name=/dev/input/yr-device-file-name You will be able to identify it using the two environment variables (env-var) ID_VENDOR_ID=1532 MODEL_ID=0016 per your question (depending on yr device, the 2nd ...

Check out my little project to create a shell script to automatically apply powertop's "good" power settings. You can then easily edit the resulting script to comment out any configuration that's giving you trouble and run it instead of sudo powertop --auto-tune.

Ok, as described in http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/156949/how-to-keep-the-touchpad-but-want-to-deactivate-the-buttons, it's possible to deactivate the hardware buttons in a laptop using xinput. The basic steps are the following: 1 - Get the name (or id) of your touchpad xinput list 2 - With that name (or id) you can disable you touchpad totally ...

DON'T confuse this with the "Snapping Windows" setting, which can be set via "CompizConfig Settings Manager", which is downloadable from the Ubuntu Software Centre. Also works on 15.10

Have you gone into System Settings and checked the values, its possible that they got changed by something in the update. Also, try rebooting, I know this is the cure for a number of the other OS's problems, but every once in a while it works even in Linux.

I've been having the same issue lately, while using Gimp and/or Netbeans. What worked for me, was follow this procedure : Switch from graphical tty to a console tty using Ctrl + Alt + F1 Switch back from console tty to graphical tty using Ctrl + Alt + F7 That's really all it took to "fix" the cursor. I didn't even need to login at the console tty. Just ...

Using xdotool Not really convenient, but possible: with xdotool, you can simulate mouse- and keyboard events: Install xdotool: sudo apt-get install xdotool Now you need to add two keyboard shortcuts; one to simulate pressing the left mouse button, and one to release it: Choose: System Settings > "Keyboard" > "Shortcuts" > "Custom Shortcuts". Click the ...

I'm going to assume you are using a laptop with a touchpad. Try going to System settings > Mouse & Touchpad settings and uncheck the "Disable touchpad while typing" box in Touchpad > General section. That should help. Good luck and lemme know if that works for you.

This can occur if your bluetooth dongle is next to a wifi chipset for example. Just switch side to connect my USB dongle solved my laggy keyboard (my mouse was already fluid before). A fresh install rather than a upgrade is always cleaner.

For those that googled this answer looking for how to disable Window sticky edges. Type ccsm (to install sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager) and filter by edge. Go to Snapping Windows > Behavior > Snap Type and uncheck Edge resistance and Edge attraction.

Just solved the issue. Went to System Settings -> Screen Display and checked the "Mirror Displays" box. For some reason the thing never happened again after that.

After much struggling, I found a solution that worked for me, and will hopefully work for others who run into a similar issue. Following the instructions here, I removed all my alps folders in /usr/src/ and finished the instructions to no avail (I did install everything like they said and it's still in /usr/src/, so it may've helped). After deleting the ...

Semi-solution to this issue: Disabling the proprietary ATI drivers and reverting to the default ("X.Org X Server -- AMD/ATI display driver wrapper...") driver solved the issue. The system and the graphics around the GUI is now much smoother.

I think you should look at it this way: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 <--position-- physical keys Option "ButtonMapping" "1 9 3 4 5 6 7 8 2" <--function-- logical keys The position that indicates the key id as reported by mouse (through driver). So it's up to the manufacturer how to order them, however most stick to common order. ...

This is an odd behaviour that was unexpected and certainly not obvious. After double checking the Display Settings, it turns out that there was a small gap between my two monitors. This gap essentially meant that moving the mouse slowly did not manage to 'jump' the gap, whereas moving fast enough did. This issue is separate and distinct from sticky edges. ...

Have you been able to solve the Problem definitely? Or did it just vanish? Currently I'm experiencing exactly the same Problem: After booting I can start exactly one application and few seconds later the mouse clicks do no longer work. Mouse movement and (sometimes) scrolling work fine. Mouse clicks in the dash work, but nowhere else. And this Situation ...
