I found that this answer helped me the most to change the scroll speed in both Firefox and Chromium: http://askubuntu.com/a/98881/309288 For Google Chrome One can no longer change the scroll amount with command line parameters. However, you can use this add-on extension: ...

Maybe there's some way to fix it, but if you can't fix it and your computer is a desktop computer, get a 4-port PCI Express USB expansion card. I don't think you can get one of these cards anymore in a brick and mortar store, because these cards were mostly available back when motherboards without built-in USB ports were still being manufactured, but you can ...

Fn× handled by BIOS/Firmware. Some vendors provide a way to customize them with limited options. If you are comparing with MS Windows, some vendors supplies tools with their binary drivers that can talk to BIOS some how. CtrlAltF× are console keys that need to be handled in the early boot stage. Try January's answer in Change Default TTY ...

You're right about Alt-F12, for toggling mouse mode on and off. As for scrolling in the Byobu, you'd need to enter scrollback mode, using F7.

I believe I know of a workaround, but I cannot guarantee this very old pc won't have other problems later. Install the os to the hard drive of that pc using a different computer, then when you reconnect that hard drive to your very old PC, it will very likely appear to operate the mouse and keyboard correctly.

On 14.04, when I go to Settings -> Mouse and Touchpad there are two devices listed. On for the keyboard and one for the mouse. I have no idea why the keyboard shows up under the Mouse setting. Make sure to change the device to your mouse, and then set the settings to use left-handed buttons. I had the same problem, largely because I didn't read what was ...

Bluetooth 4 HID devices (like your mouse) require Bluez 5.15 to function. Unfortunetely, on Ubuntu 14.04, Bluez is at version 4. To update Bluez to version 5, you will have to do the following: Note: I haven't teseted this and these instructions, and they (while very unlikely) could break your machine due to this being an unofficial PPA. Add this ...

I've been having this problem since I got Ubuntu, My mouse would work for like 30 minutes after each time i started the computer and even though the hardware was visible in lsusb the mouse wouldn't move and the lights on my razer imperator wouldn't light up. I fixed the issue by removing another USB mouse out of my computer, its been almost 10 hours now and ...

You could try to use input-kbd from the input-utils package: $ apropos input-kbd input-kbd (8) - print or modify keyboard maps for input devices Using the input device index (e.g. 4 for /dev/input/event4, which can be found via lsinput which is necessarily different than the id used in xinput), you can reconfigure the keyboard map by feeding it a ...

To disable the gestures, you can change the button mapping with the evdev driver so that the last 6 "buttons" are all disabled like so: appending the following to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf or /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf depending on what you have: # custom for Logitech Ultrathin Touch mouse Section "InputDevice" Identifier ...

it does sound like the laptop is overheating. how is the fan working have you noticed if it is running more then normal or loader or if it isn't running at all? the other possibility is either the memory or processor is failing. I'd have the laptop check out and diagnosed for hardware problems.

I own an older laptop (8 years?) with some small defects (graphics adapter for example, but it works for office, programming etc.) and I have the following problem: When it gets warm after a few minutes of normal use (warm, maybe 40°C, not hot) and I try a restart, I get a white screen instead of BIOS display followed by GRUB and finally Ubuntu.

From the xinput man page: device can be the device name as a string or the XID of the device. It means that you can just give the full name of your mouse to the xinput command. Let's first identify your mouse device, type xinput in a terminal: $ xinput ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST ...

The immediate workaround: Log off and back on again. (which you've probably already done by now) The permanent fix: use VLC to watch movies.

The most important thing first: Don't ever run the tools as root! Linux is not Windows, even if it's Ubuntu. Other things you need to know: After adding yourself to group roccat you need to at least relogin for the new membership to get applied. The device needs a replug, so that udev can apply the newly installed rules. Now do this: Delete the files ...

You might have some luck altering the options for the trackpad's driver (if it is Synaptics). Open a terminal, and take a look at the output from the following command synclient -l (which gives options and corresponding values for the trackpad if the Synaptics driver is being used). I have a different machine (MacBook Pro) so my options are probably ...

I know it is not an explanation, but I have had the same issue with a wireless microsoft mouse. It moved erratically and the movement speed was way off compared to the settings. The solution was to remove the mouse from USB and plug it in again. This made it behave normal again.

as a simple workaround just connect an external mouse via USB on boot and touchpad, keyboard, etc. will work without a reboot.

In Xubuntu go to Settings Manager - Mouse and Touchpad - Theme. There you can make mouse cursor size bigger. Also you can download additional themes for your mouse that make viewing the mouse easier. See xfce-look.org. You may choose the theme by your tastes. I think this one best suits your needs: DMZ with Yellow Background Multisized. As for Lubuntu: ...

I was recently bitten by this, too, and it appears to be a bug in imwheel that has to do with @Exclude. Apparently the code responsible for restoring key grab after an exclude is activated is never executed. There's a patch in the link above, and here as well. Apparently, the bug has been known since 2004 :D

You might try resetting the touchpad every so often using: $ sudo tpconfig -xr I know this is a work around, and annoying, but it isn't as bad as a flaky touchpad!

Your GUI is not active, try startx command. If this dosn't work try to download the new Live-ISO file and Burn it to a CD or Usb-stick. Start from that and do a reinstall, don't reformat anything - at vleast at first. Otherwise you have a broken system - and need to get rid of the dodgy configurations, so you have to do the format..... -- Do backup - if ...

I don't think that it's possible using only xmodmap tool to accomplish what you wish. This because the mouse button is not a key, so it can't have a keyname. One way to do what you wish is to use xdotool . Using the following command line you can simulate a left click of your mouse: xdotool click 1 Now, all you have to do is to add a custom keyboard ...

Have you tried Blueman? It has many more drivers for additional devices than the normal bluetooth. sudo apt-get install blueman and see if using that fixes your problem.
