    Mouse pointer slows down

    Upgraded yesterday. Sometimes when I open my laptop (HP G60) the mouse pointer starts to slow down and then everything just hangs requiring a hard reboot. I always have firefox open so could be firefox but didn't happen in 12.10. will try and narrow things down but would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have the same problem.

    Re: Mouse pointer slows down

    I have moved your post to thread of its own. Please post new issues in new threads rather than hijacking existing ones. It is unfair to original poster and reduces your chances of getting help (and gets confusing).

    Presume you have 13.04 installed and not 12.10 as you posted on a thread and in a sub-forum specifically about 13.04? Please inform as if it is not 13.04 I will move this thread to General Help. Good luck finding a fix.

    Re: Mouse pointer slows down

    it seems that the mouse settings are not fully working: when i go to tweak the "mouse pointer speed" for example (which is by default set to 50 %) to set it either min or max, then closing the System Settings box and reopenning it, my previous choice is reset to 50 % again. Look likes dconf-tools cant do better about that. Really seems borked (but i'm using gnome3 ppas)

    Re: Mouse pointer slows down

    Same thing happening here, right after upgrading xubuntu last week. Mouse -and keyboard- gradually becoming unresponsive to the point of rendering the system unusable. Transmission keeps on working, if I'm watching a movie on VLC the movie plays on, if a terminal window is on focus I can type into it for as long as I want to... but I can't move the cursor pointer, I can't use the keyboard to send shortcuts to a GUI application.

    I also tend to think it has something to do with firefox, and perhaps even when displaying images/javascript, flash perhaps...

    I am now positive it's Firefox's flash plugin. Disabling it has my sessions back to normal. The downside is I can't use sites using flash (e.g. anytime I want to view youtube clips)

    We've had a thread about YT and Flash and we've concluded that You can watch almost all YT clips in HTML5...

    Mind elaborating on why/how you reached your conclusion or providing a link to fix? Providing a conclusion doesn't help OP much, providing a link to the thread you're referring to or a fix on the other hand ...

    What does this have to do with a mouse pointer moving slow?
