Sluggisssh keyboard

Postby NumNuts » Thu Nov 26, 2009 7:17 am

Hi,
Logitech cordless keyboard is very sluggish, 1 character per second. Tried spare keyboard, same. Rebooted and checked settings, no joy. :(
Sorry this is so short but typing this took 5 minutes. :x

This is the keyboard buffer playing bad
Either the buffer in hardware or a software buffer, which probably should be flushed
I had this problem, not as bad by far, some time ago but I can't remember what I did to solve it - something fairly simple
Oh, turn off Compiz (Appearance > Visual Effects tab > None - to get i back select the "old" option)
Boot from the live CD and see what happens, if it's software the live CD should be OK
If it's only in Firefox the solution at the very end of this topic might help
I'll be thinking of it but you needed a solution days ago.....

Thanks Husse.
As you said I needed to solve it quickly, so I used the big hammer and just reinstalled Mint.
Thinking about it, I should have checked using the live CD first.
Thanks again for the reply.

so I used the big hammer

When I read that my brain said to me "Oh no - did he smash the keyboard" before the rest of the sentence appeared :mrgreen:

I do also have a proper big hammer for solving various other technical and automotive problems! :x
I am as bad a mechanic as I am a techie.
