    My pointer is shaky

    Just installed Ubuntu 13.04 via disk to HP Pavillion g6. I think It's great but the pointer is a bit jittery and difficult to position accurately. Tried adjusting pointer speed in settings but that didn't work. Is there a way to adjust pointer sensitivity? Thanks.

    You could try fiddling around with the options in gpointing-device-settings. To install, open a terminal and use this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
    More in depth instructions here.

    This post solved my touchpad problems: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1971259

    Try increasing the values of Horizhysteresis and VertHysteresis in Terminal (copy and paste from the aforementioned thread):

    synclient HorizHysteresis=72 (you can add whatever value you want to test the behavior of your touchpad, for me 72 is fine)
    synclient VertHysteresis=72 (you can add whatever value you want to test the behavior of your touchpad, for me 72 is fine)

    If you want to make the change permanent, see the last comment in that thread.
