Moving this post over to a new topic, I searched the forum here, as well as google, and saw reference to mouse/cursor moving erratically, or losing control of mouse, and there was a bug report from Sept '12, that I couldn't find buried in the list of bug reports with a similar issue as mine, but no solutions found. The problem is that the mouse/cursor will suddenly jump back in an email, usually in a browser, and the typing will just start there; and more annoyingly, sometimes the text between where it was and where it ends up, will be erased. It might be in this post, after almost getting to the end, suddenly it will all be erased. I couldn't find any insights into this problem, so I'm posting here. Actually there was a post from someone in LM14 with the jumping cursor problem, the answer given by someone was to update the xserver-xorg-core file . . . I checked mine in synaptic and it's as new as it can be for LM13. Perhaps someone can offer some insights? The code above is showing the errors that came when I tried to install Chromium . . . in both Synaptic and Terminal.
[Previous post moved to here]:
Yes, problem happened again yesterday while typing in a forum post, so in FF . . . no spare fingers touching the touchpad, just suddenly the cursor moved back in the text, erasing almost everything that was written . . . . Fortunately I was awake and noticed what happened and could ctrl-z it back. But, this really isn't acceptable behavior from an OS, is this passive-aggression from somebody where a glitch is placed so that we keep it real?
Anyway, in the interest of trying to figure out if it's an FF problem I tried synaptic to install another browser, I tried chromium, but got the above error(s) . . . seamonkey did not show up . . . . Is FF the only browser that works with LM13? I did see a post somewhere about how the cursor will up and move 90 degrees, but couldn't find it again and couldn't remember if it had to do with apple computers or any computer. So, haven't been able to confine the problem to being cursor related, touchpad, or browser . . . and then it seems like FF is the only big box browser we have?? I like to have several browsers to choose from depending on my mood . . . .
P.S. Later that same day: Managed to install Midori thru synaptic and fiddling around getting it set up . . . looks like it was a 3MB download, seems fast enough, doesn't seem to have auto-fill for log in windows. I'll be testing it to see if the same erratic cursor and lost data problem happens in Midori, or if it's just confined to FF. [Comment]: The problem happened in Midori as well yesterday, so it's not just FF that is causing the problem.
