View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mouse movement and zigzagging?

June 21st, 2010, 08:22 AM
Hi, I new.

Anyway, just installed 10.04 desktop on a 4,1 Macbook. I've pretty much got everything to where I like it. My only real problem is the track pad/mouse not working right. Unless I move the the mouse perfectly vertical/horizontal the mouse starts zigzagging like crazy. The slower I move the mouse the more prominent the problem seems to be. I've tried playing with the mouse settings under preferences but nothing got it working smoothly. Tried searching but this seems to be a pretty unique situation as I couldn't find any relevant threads. I'm clueless as to what I can try, any ideas??

That problem is discussed here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=813884&page=4), adjusting the settings in preferences - mouse may minimize the problem.
