Re: Touchpad not working on Macbook - Mint KDE

Hi Aaron - had precisely the same problem (Macbook, Mint Xfce 17.1). Simply try synclient FingerLow=1; synclient FingerHigh=10 in a terminal. This works for me. (see also http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=813884&page=6 ) To make it permanent I added the command to the list of start up app...

Re: Dragon Naturally Speaking

I hope so too, but I do not see any project reaching maturity soon. A while ago, I contacted someone close to Nuance (creators of Dragon Naturally Speaking), and asked them whether Nuance is considering developing a native Linux version of Dragon. After all, they have already available a version for...

Re: Dragon Naturally Speaking

As a seasoned user of Dragon Naturally Speaking on Windows (user since version 1.0) I finally made an effort to make it work on Linux using Wine. Here is my experience - hope it's of use to anyone else reading this thread. I pretty much followed the instructions on http://binaryimpulse.com/2013/01/i...

Re: Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Maya 64bit, MATE)

Yes, have tried that, to no avail: in my case it is not a problem of speed, or sensitivity, or acceleration. Whenever I stop moving the pointer and release my finger, regardless aforementions settings, it jumps away in an unpredictable direction for an unpredictable distance. But thanks again for yo...

Re: Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Maya 64bit, MATE)

Thanks for the suggestion and glad it works for you! However installing Gsynaptics package does not resolve the issue for me. (I also understand that it is (near) obsolete for Mint and that rather gpointing-device-settings should be used...) Anybody else have any assistance on offer? This problem dr...

Re: Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Maya 64bit, MATE)

I have now installed as a triple boot also Ubuntu 12.10, and made sure I have the latest updates. Precisely the same exasperating problem! For this reason, and because there is no response in this forum since initially posting this issue 19 dec, I have also asked the same question to the Ubuntu user...

Touchpad problem: cursor jumps (Maya 64bit, MATE)

Hello, I have this annoying touchpad problem: I move the pointer with the touchpad. Then, at the end of the movement (i.e. when I release contact with the trackpad) the pointer makes a small jump on the screen of (seemingly) random magnitude and direction. I have a dual boot HP Pavilion dv7 with Min...
