    Slight mouse "jittering/lag"

    Hello, after installing Xubuntu 12.10 I've been getting a little mouse jittery-ness. It's not so bad but I'd prefer to have nice smooth mouse movement like I did with Windows. I also had this issue with Linux Mint.

    Specifications:

    Intel Core i5-2450M
    15.6' HD 200 CSV LD
    4GB DDR3 (1333MHz)
    640GB SATA (5400rpm)10/100Mbps LAN
    WLAN (Realtek 802.11b/g/n)
    GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6625M


    Unfortunately Toshiba doesn't say anything about the touchpad.

    Here's the link to the Toshiba site with the drivers and other things: http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/...0n010/download

    (Sorry if linking other sites isn't allowed! If it's not allowed I'll edit the link out. I didn't see anything in the rules/code of conduct about linking other websites not being allowed but I'm not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to reading large amounts of text)

    I've already tried installing the 12.3 beta drivers from ATI's site too. Of course, that didn't fix my mouse issue but I thought it might be worth a shot.

    Edit: It seems I forgot to add something. I've already updated everything the update manager (or whatever it's called) wanted me to.

    I use a cordless mouse and periodically this happens to me. Turns out that it appears to be an indication that the batteries are getting low and need to be replaced regardless of what the indicators say. At least when I replace the batteries the mouse is rock solid again. I don't know if this will apply to you, but for what it may be worth . . . .

    No, my laptop is only a few months old and I'm 100% sure the battery isn't dying. If you're talking about the mouse.. Well, trackpads on laptops don't need batteries..

    No, you are talking about a "mouse".

    If you are actually talking about pointer jitter on the touchpad then that is not a mouse.

    Thank you for correcting me on something incredibly silly and contributing literally nothing to the thread
