The razer taipan mouse desing is ambidextrous so you could use it like if you were lefthanded or viceversa. So practically the buttons from both side are pretty much the same

Some desktop environments (DE) combined with various window managers (WM) can achieve quite a bit of functionality with input from the mouse, however it might not cover that one obscure setting we might want to change. In my case I use Logitech M510 mice on all of my machines, but rather than using the browse "forward" and "back" buttons (the buttons by the ...

This should be fully configurable in the compiz-settings-manager. You can install it with a search in 'apps'.

At first I thought you may not be able to use that on Linux (Ubuntu). Read their page: Compatible with XP/Windows Vista/ Windows 7 / Mac OSX By looking further on that site I can see that they have developed a Linux app. These kind of software solutions are made up of an Android app that installs on your phone/tablet and another app that should be ...

To change the double-click interval in Lubuntu (confirmed to be working on 14.04): Create a (hidden) file: ~/.gtkrc-2.0 (~/ is your home directory, files starting with . are hidden by default, press Ctrl+H to make hidden files visible) Open the file with Leafpad / run in a terminal window: leafpad ~/.gtkrc-2.0 add a line to the file: ...

As far as the computer is concerned this is a wired mouse. The charging cradle is also the wireless base-station, which then emulates a usb mouse to the computer. I would suspect a fault with the mouse of base-station charging cradle.

original script only works if firefox self backgrounded. You obviously have different environments. Note you can do both xdotool actions all in one command, as xdotool itself can sleep #!/bin/bash /usr/bin/firefox & xdotool sleep 2 mousemove 1335 165 sleep 2 click 1 WARNING: how well can you rely on firefox appearing exactly where xdotool thinks ...

I guess the Logitech USB Receiver is your wireless mouse? I can't see any sign of your touchpad from the dmesg output, which should look like this if it works: [ 10.706] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/event4) [ 10.706] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall" [ 10.706] (**) ...

Go to nvidia settings, profiles, and switch to Intel Power Saving. Logout and back in.

These lines from your dmesg look suspicious, if I see a --[ cut here ]-- in a log it's usually something important, as is the distinctive-looking call trace that follows: [ 42.752749] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 42.752792] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 493 at /build/buildd/linux-3.16.0/net/wireless/sme.c:791 cfg80211_roamed+0x91/0xa0 [cfg80211]() ...

That's also a key problem I've got with my Lenovo L540 touchpad. CaptSaltyJack's suggestion is a step in the right direction, but it does not solve the problem completely, as the actual issue is not entirely related to the noise cancellation level. Regarding proposed changes to ~/.xinputrc I would suggest to follow im-config's manual, so: If you wish to ...

I have been having problems on my MacBook as well (particularly since upgrading to 14.10).

About the original question: I too am an xfce user and am somewhat visually impaired. I use the red pointer, but often can't find it in a cluttered desktop. Then I just use Alt+F1 which pulls up a file manager menu box. I don't need it, but it's always placed on the desktop with the cursor at one of its upper corners. Once I've located the cursor, I just ...

The error device descriptor read/all, error 2 indicates a unrecoverable problem in the communication with the device on the USB bus. This can have several causes mostly on the electrical level: broken cable, bad voltage, short circuit, bad USB hub… As a first test you should try to use an other USB port! If you have a hub in between remove it and attach the ...

After two days I have finally been able to make the mouse work. All I had to do was enable USB legacy support in my laptop BIOS and disable xHCI support.

Even though minicute says that it is supported on Linux, does not mean the drivers for said device are automatically loaded. Have you tried looking in the software center for additional drivers for the minicute mouse? Some third party proprietary drivers must be downloaded and installed "manually." I find that odd, though, as that mouse looks like it ...

I just bought one myself and found that the following workes perfectly for me. Open dconf-editor (sudo apt-get install dconf-editor if it isn't already installed). Navigate to org -> gnome -> desktop -> wm -> keybindings. Change the value of switch-to-workspace-down to ['<Control><Alt>Down', '<Primary><Super>Tab', ...

Sounds like a similar issue to me. I did a clean install of ubuntu 14.04 on my hp nx6325 with a turion 64x2 cpu. at the moment mine works but doesnt shutdown probably because the Modem was unrecognised and therefore causes issues. i was advised on here to do the Ctrl-Alt-F6 to switch screens to see the login/text screen. This allows you to see the error ...

There has been another new version of the kernel 3.13.0-40 which resolved the issue. Once my ubuntu updated to this new version everything went back to working correctly.

Maybe there are too many start-up applications going.Try disabling some unnecessary ones. You can do it with BUM software.(sudo apt-get install bum) If you hesitate about necessity of apps just Google!

I have this mouse, the only 'fix' I was able to come up with is the "emulate middle click by clicking both left and right buttons" in the "Mouse and touchpad" 'zone' in settings. Not the best solution, but it works for me.

Yes you can. Just go to Settings, Keyboard, Shortcuts, Windows and change "Maximize window vertically". I use Ctrl+↑

If you are using bluez, this solution might help you as well as it helped me: Basically you need to put your mouse in discoverable mode and then run the following commands in the console: hcitool scan bluez-simple-agent hci0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX bluez-test-device trusted XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX yes bluez-test-input connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX Where ...

The problem has been solved! After I searched a lot of the mouse issue with ubuntu, I guess the mouse issue caused by the configuration files (I reinstalled ubuntu 14.04.1, but my home directory point to a separated home partition that was not formatted when reinstalling ubuntu), so I backup all of the hidden files and hidden directories in the my home ...

That looks like it might even be in the "Indicator Plugin" if not the "Notification area". Did you check the settings for both of those, and the settings for anything else that shows up in the Panel Preferences Items near there, like the battery monitor? You might be able to hide it if it's hiding in another (adjacent?) Panel Item.

What it means is it will only be garunteeded to work with Windows. Having it as dual boot won't make any difference. However... I use a Microsoft Track Ball Explorer, made by Microsoft: It works perfectly with Ubuntu - better than it does with my Windows 8 computer. Just because it doesn't garuntee that it will work, it probaby still will.

Error message you got seems clearly telling you what's wrong no?; you don't have TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint on your machine. What if replacing it with ThinkPad Extra Buttons that's printed in your xinput output? Atually I've got my middle-button working by following the link you provided. In my case: $ xinput ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 ...

@vitaly-dubyna has the right answer. On debian his method works flawlessly. To make your life easier, put a file .xsessionrc in your home directory with all the settings so that it will be loaded after each restart. make a new file use vim, pico, gedit -- vim .xsessionrc then stick this inside xinput set-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel ...
