View Full Version : [ubuntu] Minor annoyance after upgrading 10.04 -> 10.10

June 5th, 2011, 04:39 AM
I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 after a format, and I've been getting this annoying thing going on with my mouse pointer, where, whenever I move it, it initiates a loading animation, and after about a second, to a second and a half, it acts as if I were to click with the LMB, even if I didn't. This makes life difficult, because I have to be conscious of where I click, or if I'm typing something, it will cut me off in the middle, or open a link I didn't want to open, and all sorts of other erratic behavior. It routinely stops me from typing mid-sentence, stops YouTube videos, etc., and it's extremely hard to get used to after a decade of never taking notice of where I put my pointer, this is becoming a major headache.

What package could have done this? How can I turn it off? I've gone through all the accessibility options in Gnome, etc., and nothing has changed. Any help is greatly appreciated.
