Unholy Combination [2xSOLVED]

Post by ~FLOW~ »

Hello everyone,
my problem with linux is almost 9 years old.
Right now I use Linux Mint 19.3 - Cinnamon. My laptop is connected to a Samsung 40’’ TV-screen. The laptop screen is disabled and I only use the TV screen.

In short the problem is that if select the resolution of 1280x720(16:9) I can see the image crisp and clear, BUT the mouse is moving a little sluggish. If I change the resolution to 1360x768(16:9), the mouse is working crisp but the image is slightly fuzzy. The outline of the letters is not clear. If I read for an hour like that, my eyes are full of tears. But all the animations work a little faster. It feels like I gained another 1GHz on my CPU. It's not that big of a difference but it's there

My biggest frustration is that with Windows(7/10) installed on my setup, everything is working fine, except...the OS :)
I always had this problem on all the distros that I tried along the way, including Manjaro. The problem with the sluggish mouse is only on TV. If I take a print screen with each resolution I cannot see the difference in the photos. No matter the resolution, on laptop's display the mouse is moving perfectly. I have tried with a different 4K HDMI cable...it's the same. I have tried with NVidia drivers, it's the same but worse, because then I get huge screen tearing and none of VSync Methods work.

I tried many things found on forums but I'm still a newbie and I ended up eventually breaking the sistem without knowing how to repair what I have changed. But as always, my guardian angel - Timeshift - was there to rescue. I even bought a Logitech G603 hopping that a bigger DPI will solve the problem

I had some small luck with changing the file 50-mouse-acceleration.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
with
"InputClass" Identifier "My Mouse" Driver "libinput" MatchIsPointer "yes" Option "AccelProfile" "flat" EndSection
With this the mouse it working a tiny bit better

I really don't know if there is maybe a holly combination between a setting from OS and one from the TV for it to work.
Maybe some of you who are good also with TV settings have a tip for me ?!
I would appreciate it so much !!!!!!

Be patient !!
What seams easy for you now, for a newbie might be a monumental helping hand.
An efficient pack will move as fast as the slowest member.

A system will often behave the way you describe if it's running your TV at a 30Hz frame rate.

Post the output of xrandr --verbose from a terminal and enclose it in code tags. Do this with the TV plugged in and displaying your machine's screen output.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

You have a 1920x1080 TV and should as such be providing it a 1920x1080 picture. I take it that that resolution is not available from the Mint display tool? If indeed, try adding video=eDP-1:d to the existing line

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="..."
in /etc/default/grub, using e.g. nano /etc/default/grub. Save the file, run sudo update-grub and reboot. I suppose it should then even come up automatically as 1920x1080?

Undoing is a simple matter of removing that parameter again, rerunning sudo update-grub and rebooting.

also a lower resolution works better for me, because between me and the tv there are 3m (10ft)...
But I could manage with Text Scaling factor

It makes very little sense to me that you'd lag at both the native 1920x1080 and the easy downscale 1280x720 but not at 1360x768 -- which, mind you, is unlike the first two not in fact precisely 16:9. You're running at 60 Hz in both cases it would seem so also seemingly not the issue...

Does the TV have a "game" mode that you can set that specific HDMI port to? Does it help?

I always thought that the problem is the mouse acceleration
but in every distro I had to try different settings in files like 50-mouse-acceleration.conf until I got it 80% "there".
In Manjaro, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Mint it always was an improvement by doing this, but never as crisp as in Windows OS.
And I never understood why with the resolution 1360x768 is working fine
Also on the TV when I change the resolution I see
1280x720 @60Hz
1360x768 @60Hz

and I just made a test by deleting the file 50-mouse-acceleration.conf and I noticed that without it on the mouse is not 100% "there" on 1360x768(the fuzzy resolution)

I'm sorry if I give too much useless information, but you never know :roll:

1. I do have a Game mode and I played with it a long time ago but never to much because when is active the image loses from brightness a little.
2. The TV has 4 HDMI ports - 1(DVI) / 2(ARC) / 3 / 4
3. If I change the resolution to 1360x768 ... half of my TV setting are disabled like Game mode...which I never understood why

But with you suggestion I found out something weird. Now with Game mode on and in port 2(ARC) the image doesn't lose brightness anymore and the mouse is working a little better.
I have try with 50-mouse-acceleration.conf to see what happens
I think I'm on to something !!!!!!

3. If I change the resolution to 1360x768 ... half of my TV setting are disabled like Game mode...which I never understood why
That actually seemingly makes sense: "game mode" is about minimizing input lag, i.e., minimizing the time between a frame having arrived at the TV and it being actually displayed, i.e., minimizing TV-sides processing such as (more involved) rescaling from 1360x768 to the panel's native 1920x1080.

That's also the reason it made little sense to me that you were experiencing less input lag on 1360x768 than on either 1280x720 or the natve1920x1080 --- but it would seem that this is then explained by one or more of those settings that 1360x768 disables. Not game mode but one of the others. I.e., I'd now expect that you could get lag on 1280x720 and (best) 1920x1080 equal to "the 1360x768 lag" by disabling one or more of the settings that you say 1360x768 disables.

This is what I got so far on https://www.mouseaccuracy.com
before
1.Normal.png
after
6. FINAL.png
It's a HUGE DIFFERENCE !!!!!!! :mrgreen:

The combination so far on 1280x720 :
1. HDMI 2(ARC)
2. GAME Mode - ON
3. The file 90-mouse_accel.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d with :

Code: Select all

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Mouse With No Acceleration"
        MatchDriver "libinput"
        MatchIsPointer "yes"
        Option "AccelProfile" "flat"
EndSection

I will test some more options on the TV

Okay, so without even disabling some other option? Seems to not make complete sense yet --- but I'll not argue with success. Cheers.

In Linux Mint is there a possibility to change the scroll number of the mouse-wheel ?
See you haven't opened a new topic and that might be for the best since the disappointing answer seems to basically be "No" currently.

That is. there used to be a useful sounding evdev parameter when "evdev" was as the commonly used X.org input driver but the current "libinput" driver does not have that settled it seems. If you google the issue you find advise to set MOUSE_WHEEL_CLICK_ANGLE as a udev hwdb setting. If you run

Code: Select all

sudo libinput debug-events
you will see your mouse listed as e.g. event2 and upon using the scroll wheel see its default angle, probably 15 degrees also in your case. I.e. scrolling one tick down and then one tick up again here:

Code: Select all

$ sudo libinput debug-events
-event1   DEVICE_ADDED     Power Button                      seat0 default group1  cap:k
-event0   DEVICE_ADDED     Power Button                      seat0 default group2  cap:k
-event4   DEVICE_ADDED     HDA ATI HDMI HDMI/DP,pcm=3        seat0 default group3  cap:
-event2   DEVICE_ADDED     Logitech M705                     seat0 default group4  cap:p left scroll-nat scroll-button
-event3   DEVICE_ADDED     Logitech MK700                    seat0 default group5  cap:kp scroll-nat
-event6   DEVICE_ADDED     HDA Intel Mic                     seat0 default group3  cap:
-event7   DEVICE_ADDED     HDA Intel Line                    seat0 default group3  cap:
-event8   DEVICE_ADDED     HDA Intel Line Out                seat0 default group3  cap:
-event9   DEVICE_ADDED     HDA Intel Front Headphone         seat0 default group3  cap:
-event5   DEVICE_ADDED     Dell WMI hotkeys                  seat0 default group6  cap:k
-event2   POINTER_AXIS      +8.81s	vert 15.00* horiz 0.00 (wheel)
 event2   POINTER_AXIS     +10.16s	vert -15.00* horiz 0.00 (wheel)
Use Ctrl-C to exit. A 15 degree angle corresponds to needing 360 / 15 = 24 ticks for a full rotation of the scroll wheel and as such the advise out there is to adjust this value for a different scrolling speed. Telling the driver that e.g. one tick corresponds to 30 degrees, that only 12 ticks make up the same full rotation, that a single tick movement should hence scroll twice as much.

Great. Except that it doesn't work. If you from

Code: Select all

$ udevadm info /dev/input/event2
[ ... ]
E: DEVPATH=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-1/4-1:1.2/0003:046D:C52B.0003/0003:046D:101B.0004/input/input21/event2
[ ... ]
identify the VID:PID of the mouse as seen by libinput as in my above case 046D:101B and then create a file /etc/udev/hwdb.d/71-mouse-local.hwdb containing

Code: Select all

mouse:usb:v046dp101b:name:*:
  MOUSE_WHEEL_CLICK_ANGLE=30
and run sudo systemd-hwdb update and reboot, indeed you will when again running sudo libinput debug-events find that the value 15 has now changed to 30. This is to say that udev and libinput correctly adjust the value under the influence of that MOUSE_WHEEL_CLICK_ANGLE setting... but from the fact that nothing will in fact have changed wrt. mouse wheel scroll speed it's also clear that X doesn't in fact care one hoot.

Currently. There seems to be ongoing effort to change this, e.g. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92772 and if I'm not mistaken, current status is a different libinput API as seen here, https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/libinput ... quests/139.

But right now seems KDE does this at a higher level while us GNOME-plebs get to use something like imwheel (which you can google). Nothing sensible yet; this has to do with the eternal promise of Wayland: basically nobody bothers fixing X any more and certainly not in a timely manner "since Wayland is the future" but at the same time Wayland is nowhere to be found for most of us and is even for those for whom it is an incomplete and unfinished mess. I would for example be severely surprised if this issue would already work in Wayland.

So, in summary: "No".

Wow !
thank you for the detailed example. I will make a try on a Virtualbox machine.
First of all, I'm way to excited that I can finally click where I want, to care that much for the scroll speed :)

So far I'm astonished that nobody fixes this somehow for the newbie users that come from Mac or WinOS. For a newbie this is a simple setting and it's weird that it cannot be found. I remember in LM 17 you could change this, and most of linux users are control freeks ... so this would be a must :)

Anyway, I found this thread about imwheel and it was the only one that worked for me so far. With the file mousewheel.sh :

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
# Version 0.1 Tuesday, 07 May 2013
# Comments and complaints http://www.nicknorton.net
# GUI for mouse wheel speed using imwheel in Gnome
# imwheel needs to be installed for this script to work
# sudo apt-get install imwheel
# Pretty much hard wired to only use a mouse with
# left, right and wheel in the middle.
# If you have a mouse with complications or special needs,
# use the command xev to find what your wheel does.
#
### see if imwheel config exists, if not create it ###
if [ ! -f ~/.imwheelrc ]
then

cat >~/.imwheelrc<<EOF
".*"
None,      Up,   Button4, 1
None,      Down, Button5, 1
Control_L, Up,   Control_L|Button4
Control_L, Down, Control_L|Button5
Shift_L,   Up,   Shift_L|Button4
Shift_L,   Down, Shift_L|Button5
EOF

fi
##########################################################

CURRENT_VALUE=$(awk -F 'Button4,' '{print $2}' ~/.imwheelrc)

NEW_VALUE=$(zenity --scale --window-icon=info --ok-label=Apply --title="Wheelies" --text "Mouse wheel speed:" --min-value=1 --max-value=100 --value="$CURRENT_VALUE" --step 1)

if [ "$NEW_VALUE" == "" ];
then exit 0
fi

sed -i "s/\($TARGET_KEY *Button4, *\).*/\1$NEW_VALUE/" ~/.imwheelrc # find the string Button4, and write new value.
sed -i "s/\($TARGET_KEY *Button5, *\).*/\1$NEW_VALUE/" ~/.imwheelrc # find the string Button5, and write new value.

cat ~/.imwheelrc
imwheel -kill

So I changed

Code: Select all

NEW_VALUE=$(zenity --scale --window-icon=info --ok-label=Apply --title="Wheelies" --text "Mouse wheel speed:" --min-value=1 --max-value=100 --value="$CURRENT_VALUE" --step 1)
with

Code: Select all

NEW_VALUE=5
an put it in Startup Applications.
BUT
It would be more elegant to put just the line that does this increase. I presume is one of these :

Code: Select all

sed -i "s/\($TARGET_KEY *Button4, *\).*/\1$NEW_VALUE/" ~/.imwheelrc # find the string Button4, and write new value.
sed -i "s/\($TARGET_KEY *Button5, *\).*/\1$NEW_VALUE/" ~/.imwheelrc # find the string Button5, and write new value.
but also I don't understand what is this file's role: ~/.imwheelrc
Linux Mint 20
Cinnamon 4.6
Kernel 5

Be patient !!
What seams easy for you now, for a newbie might be a monumental helping hand.
An efficient pack will move as fast as the slowest member.

~/.imwwheelrc is the per-user configuration file for imwheel and the only thing that the script does is change it. If you hardcode the value anyway you don't need the script and can just use xed ~/.imwheelrc to create and save the file directly as

Code: Select all

".*"
None,      Up,   Button4, 5
None,      Down, Button5, 5
Control_L, Up,   Control_L|Button4
Control_L, Down, Control_L|Button5
Shift_L,   Up,   Shift_L|Button4
Shift_L,   Down, Shift_L|Button5
It will already be this from the last time you used the script, so you will in fact not need to do anything even.

You need a manual imwheel -kill to restart imwheel when you change ~/.imwheelrc but in the Startup Applications you need only imwheel. See man imwheel for more information on the program.
