  5. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    In summary: It seems to have been a problem with the driver for my 25" HP LP2475w monitor: The newer, "preferred" driver causes jumpiness and delayed text entry, instead of making the Unity interface...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    I love 14.04, but there is one critical problem: It causes my touchpad to send the pointer around too quickly. It was not fixable with the Mouse and Touchpad settings, nor with the Pointing Devices...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    I wonder if there's any chance of reinstalling the "right" driver now. The Additional Drivers thing comes up empty.

    Or do I need to just reinstall now? And if I do reinstall, is there any chance...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    I've been thinking that's probably the case: My original reason for reinstalling was that my Unity desktop kept disappearing, several times a day. That may have had something to do with the older...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    I solved the problem, but by creating a bigger one:

    As mentioned above, I installed the package fglrx-amdccle, the Catalyst AMD control center. For my previous installation of 12.04 back in 2013,...

    I tried unplugging the touchpad-keyboard, waiting five seconds, and plugging it in again. No difference.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    Okay, I just tried something else: I unplugged my touchpad-keyboard from the keyboard switcher (for switching between two computers), and plugged it directly into the computer's own USB port. No...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: choppy performance after Ubuntu 12.04 reinstallation

    The list of specifications on the invoice does not say anything about graphics. So I'm not sure. Should I check this out on my computer, or will I need to get additional specifications from the...

    Dear All,

    Re: pointer is nervous and jumpy

    I tried fiddling with my pointer settings as suggested, but it doesn't help. I may have not posted this in the best place, since my issue is not only with the pointer.

  18. [SOLVED] Re: control the number instances of a program in Unity

    Thank you, mc4man! The Alt-F2 option works great!

    And thanks also for telling me where those desktop files are located -- that fact will be very useful to me in the future.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: control the number instances of a program in Unity

    Okay, just now tried middle-clicking on the icon in the launcher. And then tried it for other program icons. Nothing happened -- it seems the middle-click just gets ignored. I see that Chromium does...
  20. [SOLVED] control the number instances of a program in Unity

    I can open multiple instances of some programs, but not of others. I use the little Stopwatch program, and in Gnome I could open as many stopwatches as I wanted. But Unity only allows me to have one...

    I installed compizconfig-settings-manager, then used the Unity thing to open that, and found out the shortcut key by looking thru the default settings. I discovered this feature initially just by...
  22. Re: Now that the Unity hate has cooled down, how do you feel about the WM?

    I've been won over, gradually over the past couple years. The final thing that did it for me was the really cool thing that happens when I press SHIFT-ALT-[up arrow]. Woo-hoo! I can easily find any...
