I found this answer for my question: http://superuser.com/questions/131297/use-synaptics-touchpad-scroll-in-vmware-guest according to it, I used the instruction in this article http://blog.alexou.net/scrolling-in-gtk-apps-with-synaptics-driver to add a DWORD to my touchpad driver on windows, and now it was fixed!

I know how this problem can be annoying. I used to install the proprietary ATI driver, however when I updated to 16.04 I figure out this issue. I realized that problem was easily solved pressing ctrl + alt + f6 and ctrl + alt + f7 or changing the resolution with the xrandr. So I created this following workaround. Open the terminal, and type the following ...

This bug is fixed in Chrome 52: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/Xh9GV7jNymo https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=609748 Until then, the 'solution' I use is to place one finger on the trackpad before the other. Then you can scroll without jumping.

There's a somewhat nicer application now available to Ubuntu (and other distributions): TLP – Linux Advanced Power Management TLP brings you the benefits of advanced power management for Linux without the need to understand every technical detail. TLP comes with a default configuration already optimized for battery life, so you may just ...

First of: powertop is reporting a discharge rate of 11.3 W. While this is not spectacular, it can not possibly be considered high. On a Lenovo T420 I had discharge rates in excess of 30 W. The first problem you have is a degraded battery. As new, this 9 cell model boasts 94 Wh of storage, which at a discharge rate of 11 W should last in excess of 8 hours. ...

I figured it out finally. There was a bug in the bios and I had to update my bios. Now it works like a dream. Just go to the Lenovo site then download the bios iso and burn it to a disk or put the iso on a thumb drive with poweriso. Set the boot to optical drive first then follow the prompts. It should install fine after that.

True, at the moment PowerTop does not start when launched with --auto-tune options, but it actually applies the optimal settings... relaunch it with just sudo powertop and you'll see the difference. Cheers

Had the same issue. My workaround was to install xserver-xorg-input-libinput and remove the relevant synaptic configuration: sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-libinput sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-synaptics-t440s.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-synaptics-t440s.conf.backup

I think I had the same issue, this helped me: id=$(xinput --list --id-only 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad') xinput --set-prop $id 'Synaptics Edge Scrolling' 0 0 1

Your Intel 7265 uses the driver iwlwifi which also requires the module iwlmvm. The mini.iso evidently provides drivers for a limited number of common networking devices. I downloaded and extracted the mini.iso and, unfortunately, the module iwlmvm is not included. As well, when you tried to install, you got a message: "failed to load module iwlmvm (...

Lee, I feel your pain. I wanted to upgrade too 16.04LTS, but have since resigned myself to just upgrading the kernel too 4.4.x, which with the 14.04LTS already installed worked excellently. One thing you will need is synaptic (I would recommend synaptic to every install) to easily get and install the newer kernel. I am sure there are many other ways but I ...

Problem solved. I had a wireless mouse receiver still plugged into a usb port, which was apparently fouling up the installer. After removing it, things are working as they should.
