  4. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Touchpad 2 fingers scroll on dell laptop is not working.

    If you first go to system settings, then click on "Mouse and Touchpad", then there should be a tab at the top that says touchpad.

    If it's not there you might be screwed.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Touchpad 2 fingers scroll on dell laptop is not working.

    Go to system settings and then touchpad/mouse and go to the touchpad section and enable it.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    Anyone had success in making the printer work at faster than a glacial pace? I've been able to print, which is great, but I have to wait forever.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    I can confirm that if you are starting from scratch on 12.04, installing the printer is easy by using the printer manager. After supplying the IP address of the printer, I selected "PASSTHRU" when...

    typically it works on reboot. and it randomly started working again. but if I have this problem again, I might try that... though I'm not sure why it would make a difference.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Touchpad driver breaking, 12.04, MB Pro 8,1

    MacBook Air drivers and Pro drivers seem to be interchangeable, but at the moment, using HUD to log out and log back in suits me just fine. I'm looking for a permanent fix.

    But thanks
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Touchpad driver breaking, 12.04, MB Pro 8,1

    apparently whenever it breaks, it thinks every touch is two-finger scrolling. this explains why all touchpad functions except pointer navigation seem to be preserved.
