I have a problem with mouses on my two computers. I will try to describe that issue: When I point some tab in Google Chrome and try to click, it clics a little below... I need to resize Google Chrome window and it works for a while. Second issue is sometimes I can't click on folders on the left corner of desktop. The others folders are OK... Any advices? Regards

  • Is the mouse position only offset for Chrome or does it happen for other apps? – bain May 24 '14 at 21:35

I had the same problem https://askubuntu.com/q/471995/285006, to fix it, i did the steps described on this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2219222

CompizConfig option Ubuntu Unity Plugin > Switcher > Show live previews of windows in the Switcher. When the option is checked the mouse mismatch doesn't occur


I had the same issue on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. However it was with Nautilus file managing system for me. But later other floating widgets also got affected.

Go to CompizConfig Settings manager and search for Ubuntu Unity Plugin.

Then Switcher > Show live previews of windows in the switcher.

Check this option.
