comment Crontab Instances
I think cron, crontab, at, and anacron are all a bit too broad to be Ubuntu-specific. Go to the Unity Dash (or similar) and look for "Scheduled Tasks"

comment What wireless mice work well with Ubuntu?
@Oxwivi : Can you cite at least of the reports you've seen? It would be helpful to see what they say exactly. Thanks

comment Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse compatibility
Is this a "smooth", "pixel-perfect", "stepless" scrolling in Evince or Gedit or gnome-terminal? Thanks!

comment How can I configure a Logitech M705 to use stepless scrolling?
@jasmines Please explain why this works, what it does, and whether it is specific to the Logitech M705 or solves the analogous question for other mice. Thanks!

comment Higher precision (smoothness) touchpad scrolling
Furthermore, using Firefox 30: my touchpad does not do the kind of smooth scrolling you're looking for, at least on Ubuntu 14.04. Even enabling "smooth scrolling" in FF does not change the large jumps; it only makes in shift smoothly between the mouse event jumps, rather than scrolling by how much I moved my finger.

comment Higher precision (smoothness) touchpad scrolling
FYI: On my laptop touchpad (built-in "AlpsPS/2 GlidePoint"), I get the smooth scrolling you're talking about when I move my finger up and down the right edge in Gedit and Evince. (On Ubuntu 14.04.)

comment Gedit warning: GtkScrolledWindow is mapped but visible child GtkScrollbar is not mapped
If it's a fixed bug at the time of this answer-post (17 May 2014), then wouldn't have standard software updates of ubuntu fix it by this comment (21 May 2014)? It seems that there is a bug in the software updates related to this because a re-installation of the same version overlay-scrollbar solved the problem. Weird!
