I am posting here because of a problem I seem to be having lately. First of all, a bit of background history: I moved from Windows to Ubuntu three or four months ago, so I do not have a lot of Ubuntu (or linux in general) experience, but I know my way around a PC more or less.
So some symptoms of the problem I am having two or three days now is the following:
- Clicking twice on a tab on the lower bar to minimize and maximize a window causes the mouse to move to the center of the screen most of the times
- Super (Windows key) + mouse wheel has stopped zooming in o the desktop and instead seems like it "freezes" the mouse where it is for about a second (actually the pointer moves only a cm and returns to its initial position)
- Some times the mouse moves to random places on the screen on its own.
I cannot identify the cause of the problem, since after some search in the forums I found some similar cases (but each only mentioning one of the symptoms I have) but nothing seems to work. For the "freezing mouse" bit (2nd symptom) I read it could be related to a joypad connected, which I don't have, and for the first symptom I saw some blaming TwinView. Truth is I did actually activate twinview on my pc some days ago, but neither changing some of the settings to what worked for others nor disabling twinview altogether seems to fix the problem...
So what could it be?
Sorry for the long post!!!
