Re: touchpad grabs things & throws them around the screen [SOLVED]

I always turn off tap-to-click for the aforementioned reasons. Thankfully the Thinkpad I bought recently has a trackpad I can actually get on with .. nice not to have to use a mouse in cramped conditions at the pub. :wink: That's a great idea! I changed it and it operates reliably now. I may even g...

touchpad grabs things & throws them around the screen [SOLVED]

Maybe it's my new touchpad because I'm using a new laptop. I'll start moving the cursor with my finger on the touchpad, and randomly it latches onto something and skids it across the screen, or makes a tab jump to a new window.

Re: The Mint Café

There are two points I did not see raised yet regarding "really wanting to" do something being a ticket to achieving it. I think both sides of the discussion are valid, and I'd like to share what I see. One angle is randomness. The things people really want to do are filtered, chosen somehow, for th...

Re: This is so wonderful it tickles!

If you are getting "tickles" from ANYTHING electrical, computers included, you'd best get an electrician to check it out. ;) :lol: Sorry, my attempt at humour, welcome to the world of Linux. haha :P Issemmens, it's the vibey vibe, the flowy flow, but most of all, sensing the planet-wide crew of pee...

Re: The Mint Café

I like the name of this topic because one of my favorite beverages is mint mocha (coffee + cocoa with mint flavor added).

This is so wonderful it tickles!

Brand new Linux user here . . . after admiring the whole concept for many years. Installed and configured only minutes ago.
