View Full Version : [all variants] mousepad & bluetooth mouse problems

February 25th, 2009, 09:43 PM
Hello All
I am using Kubuntu 8.10 (64 bit) and KDE 4.2 on a Dell Latitude D830, and a Logitech bluetooth mouse. I have three annoying problems regarding the mice that I cannot solve (I suspect the problem is common to Ubuntu and Kubuntu, hence the post here):

1) I can get Kubuntu to recognize and use the bluetooth mouse but it doesn't 'stick' and I have to remove the device and add as new (using the device manager from the bluetooth icon in the stystem tray) every session, and sometimes even within a session if I leave it idle for a while.

2) I use my mouse left-handed but the change to left-handed (made using system settings) does not stick between sessions, and I always have to redo it.

3) The sensitivity of the mousepad (by which I mean movement of the mouse on the screen0 is much less than that of the bluetooth mouse, and I would like to have them approximately the same.

I would greatly appreciate any help on these matters from those more knowledgeable than myself.

With thanks.
