My friend has Microsoft Wireless Desktop 850 with AES (PY9-00001) Ubuntu 18.04. The scrolling speed is too fast, but if he removes the USB dongle and plugs it in again, it fixes the problem.

He's on a dual booted PC, and every time he boots Windows then boots back into Ubuntu, the problem is back.

How can we fix it for good?

The problem only occurs after soft reboot only.

lsusb when the mouse is working perfectly

lsusb output in terminal

lsusb when it's not working, when booting Windows then Ubuntu

identical lsusb output


When the mouse is working as expected, lsmod outputs

My friend used to use an HP wireless mouse with a wired keyboard and everything was fine. When he bought that Microsoft wireless mouse/keyboard combo, he started facing the problem listed above.

  • It is only after soft boot, right? Looks like windows does not unload the device firmware. Run lsusb and find which device driver it uses. Get back when you have the info. – kukulo Aug 11 '18 at 8:57
  • @kukulo yes It is only after soft boot, and I edited my question to include lsusb output – Lynob Aug 11 '18 at 10:12
  • what is the output of lsmod command? – kukulo Aug 11 '18 at 10:50
  • @kukulo I just edited the question to include lsmod – Lynob Aug 11 '18 at 12:46
  • lsof /dev/bus/usb/003/003 -use this command and get the output. If you get privilege error use sudo in front of the command – kukulo Aug 11 '18 at 13:01

Obviously, the KISS (Keep It Simply Stupid) answer is:

  • Shut down Windows
  • Press the power button to boot into Ubuntu.

Why?

The Windows driver leaves the mouse in an unstable state and none of the really smart answers seem to work, which leads me to the conclusion that Ubuntu cannot solve this Windows problem.

You can still file a bug to the developers of the driver (which is off-topic here), but this is a side-effect and notoriously difficult to debug. Expect to spend a lot of time on this if you go that way

  • I think I'm gonna have to accept your answer but it seems unfair to the users who posted those really smart answers and wasted times testing different scripts, I don't know what to do – Lynob Aug 17 '18 at 9:34
  • I agree with you: I'd feel bad if I were in your shoes as well. See the answer on meta. ;-) – Fabby Aug 17 '18 at 10:56

Reset mouse

Windows has a habit of leaving devices in an unusual state when it reboots. It works fine when you reboot from Windows into Windows but there are problems rebooting from Windows into Grub and then into Ubuntu.

The OP's question is just one example where the mouse has incorrect scrolling speed. Other examples include Windows powering off Audio Cards, WiFi or Network adapters can also occur.


Here is a new script I've tested and doesn't lock up the mouse/keyboard like the first script did.

Add this script to /usr/local/bin/reset-usb:

#!/bin/bash

# NAME: /usr/local/bin/reset-usb
# DATE: August 17, 2018.
# DESC: Written for Ask Ubuntu Question:
#       https://askubuntu.com/questions/1061754
#       Reboots / resets all USB devices including mouse & WiFi

if [[ $(id -u) != 0 ]]; then # root powers needed to call this script
    echo $0 must be called with sudo powers
    exit 1
fi

for i in /sys/bus/pci/drivers/[uoex]hci_hcd/*:*; do
  [ -e "$i" ] || continue
  echo "${i##*/}" > "${i%/*}/unbind"
  echo "${i##*/}" > "${i%/*}/bind"
done

systemctl restart NetworkManager.service

exit 0

Mark the file as executable with:

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/reset-usb

Edit the file /etc/rc.local and insert these lines before the last line that says exit 0:

# Reboot / reset all USB devices
/usr/local/bin/reset-usb

Credit: How do you reset a USB device from the command line?


NOTE: When internal USB devices are reset the WiFi / Bluetooth are reinitialized so systemctl restart NetworkManager.

The mouse must have DPI setting that windows modified when it starts up. Normally for best response, the system will disable software mouse acceleration and set the mouse DPI to a value that provide the desire movement speed.

When you reboot back to Ubuntu without power cycle the mouse the DPI setting is still at the level that is set by Windows. However, Ubuntu by default have mouse accerelartion set to more than x 1 speed, and hence you experience the faster motion.

You can remove mouse acceleration in Ubuntu so that you can switch between Windows and Ubuntu to get similar mouse movement speed but you may get a very slow mouse motion if you power on to Ubuntu directly unless your mouse support DPI setting memory that doesn't change over power cycle.

Remove mouse acceleration in Ubuntu, create the following file:

sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-accel-disable.conf

Content of the file:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Microsoft Mouse"
    MatchIsPointer "yes"
    Option "AccelerationProfile" "-1"
    Option "AccelerationScheme" "none"
    Option "AccelSpeed" "-1"
EndSection

Restart your session for this change to take into use (i.e., logout/login)

  • Okay sir, I feel this would work, I'll test it in 2 days from now, because right now my friend left and tomorrow I have work all day, I'll let you know if it works. Thank you – Lynob Aug 15 '18 at 18:04
  • Just tried, that did not work, I don't know why, I felt that this must work – Lynob Aug 16 '18 at 17:49
