    Re: HAL .fdi files--the new Xorg configure

    William,

    I think that's a good idea. Perhaps we could have an introductory section with a simple example, in tutorial style, to give a general idea. Then we can put some more concrete and...

    Re: HAL .fdi files--the new Xorg configure

    Having the information on the Wiki is nice, in my opinion, because other people can edit it. I've seen many great tutorials on ubuntuforums that get outdated because the original poster stops...

    Re: HAL .fdi files--the new Xorg configure

    autocrosser,

    Thanks for starting this. I agree with you and as I said elsewhere, I think this change is going to catch a lot of people by surprise. I think we should try as hard as possible to...
  4. Re: mouse and keyboard freeze computer when used in ubuntu 8.10

    It could be a hardware issue too, you know. Did you check your logs and dmesg? What if you use a regular vesa driver for your graphics card? Have you tried all this with a different mouse &...
  5. Re: Intrepid: Can't access Youtube, Amazon, Linuxtoday

    That's so weird. If you guys can't find anything on Launchpad, I'd say it's time to file a bug complaint.
  6. Re: Intrepid: Can't access Youtube, Amazon, Linuxtoday

    Jonathan,



    Yes, that's exactly what I meant, sorry for being vague there. I only mentioned that because I've had problems with DNS more than once. Just to be sure, after you put an entry on...
  7. Re: Inpute issues w/ Macbook 3,1 (Santa Rosa) & Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)

    niels,

    Honestly, what I would love to have is a simple article explaining the overall idea first. I suspect I don't know how the whole thing is supposed to work in the first place. For example,...
  8. Re: Intrepid: Can't access Youtube, Amazon, Linuxtoday

    You sure your DNS addresses are getting updated in /etc/resolv.conf? I'd also suggesting using some public DNS just to test.

    By the way, amazon.com doesn't seem to respond to pings. I just tried...
  9. Re: Inpute issues w/ Macbook 3,1 (Santa Rosa) & Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)

    Nicely done! Could you also update this wiki with a link to your article?

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config

    I'm guessing this new method of configuring inputs will be one of the top things that...
  10. Re: mouse and keyboard freeze computer when used in ubuntu 8.10

    Bummer. And you're not alone, there have been many reports of inputs stopping to work with Intrepid -- although in your case the whole system freezes. The developers are working hard to fix these...
  11. Re: mouse and keyboard freeze computer when used in ubuntu 8.10

    noogs,

    Unfortunately it's hard to guess what's going on without more debugging details -- and of course it's hard to get them if you can't type anything. So I can think of the following:

    Re: Change gnome-terminal default size

    Yes, arguably the safest way is to edit the entry that launches gnome-terminal and append --geometry to it.

    That said, I just learned a clever trick to specify the default size. This is from the...
  14. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Just as a heads-up, the Wiki entry had a typo (now corrected) at the line for:



    input.x11_options.ZAxisMapping


    I noticed that because I don't think horizontal scrolling is working. Is it...
  15. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Ah, my mirror was behind. Thanks for pointing that out.

    xinput seems to get farther now, but anything I try doesn't seem to have any effect. Note the "Fetch failure" error.



    $ xinput...
  16. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Here's an alternative I found [1], using xinput. This solution is, in my opinion, much more elegant because you remap the buttons just for the device you specify (the trackball, in our case). The...
  17. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    OK, now I suspect that:


    input.x11_options.ButtonMapping

    is completely ignored by HAL. No matter what you put there, it makes no difference. Also, if you actually google for that option,...
  18. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Good to hear! : ) Unfortunately, that's sort of an ugly hack. Let's see if we can find out what's going on with HAL not accepting the remapping in the .fdi file.
  19. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    I finally had time to test this and indeed, scrolling does work, but then the other buttons are not being mapped correctly. For example, suppose I map one of the upper buttons to work as...
  20. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Bravo! Thanks again, Marco.
  21. Re: [SOLVED] Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Thanks for testing -- I'll reboot into my Intrepid installation to give it a try as well. Let's create a Wiki page for this, what do you think?

    I suspect many people still follow this old thread:...
  22. Re: Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    See "Input Configuration with HAL":

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config

    We need more documentation on this, pretty badly.

  23. Re: Logitech Trackball - no scrolling - xorg.conf settings

    Hi,

    I'm having the same problem with the same Logitech Marble. I only spent one hour on this, but if I understand correctly, we're supposed to rely on HAL now for setting these options now, as...
