View Full Version : [xubuntu] slow scrolling+key bindings

May 27th, 2008, 03:10 AM
1. I'm trying to figure out why Firefox-3 is so slow on xubuntu-hardy. Loading is not that bad, but scrolling is incredibly slow, like the graphics driver is not installed at all. I've checked it, and it is installed, but I can't run fgl_glxgears either. It says:

~$ fgl_glxgears
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
Error: couldn't get fbconfig

I get the same slow scrolling and glitchy movie playback on openoffice.org and kaffeine respectively. I actually had no problem with openoffice under XP, but I just couldn't use windows anymore.

2. The most annoying thing about this, and the only thing that I really have a problem with is the key binding for logging out. I don't know if this is something I did on accident, but when I press Shift+Backspace, it just logs me out and I loose whatever I was doing. It drives me crazy.

you might have selected the option "Smooth scroll" in preferences of firefox.

That might be the reason for your slow scrolling check that.
