View Full Version : My ThinkPad Just Went PsychoHappy

Or maybe it made me... I'm not sure yet.

So... I installed Breezy from scratch and remembered this little trick I had setup in WinXP, where I could place my finger on one of the extremes (edges) of the track-pad and trace my finger up and down it, sort of like I was stroking the edge of the bezel on the TrackPad.... and it would _scroll the screen_

This was an awesome feature, but it took a lot of jiggling the ThinkPad software....

Umm.... it just... works.... in Breezy. I didn't have to do anything but start feeling up my laptop and there it goes.

That. Is awesome.

Thank you Breezy Devs for making Ubuntu so happy with ThinkPads :-D

My friend has a device that allows him to move the mouse cursor via a remote control. In windows he needed to install a bunch of drivers in order to get it to work, but it worked without a problem in Ubuntu. The developers get bonus points because this was an ATI Radeon device...
