17:47 melodie joined #crimsonfu
20:00 melodie pdurbin ?
20:00 * melodie invites pdurbin to #phillw to debate about Discourse
20:01 * pdurbin thinks he likes Discourse
22:14 melodie :)
22:16 pdurbin melodie: remember those Amazon ads you showed me on default Ubuntu? Can you turn those off?
22:17 melodie yes you can and I was even told now they are default turned off :
22:17 pdurbin oh good
22:17 melodie Linus Torvalds would have them triald? Well not sure, something phillw told me
22:19 melodie and that was on the official ubuntu only : not in Xubuntu, Lubuntu and other non Unity flavors
22:28 pdurbin everybody still hates Unity, right? I'm still on Fedora so I don't know.
22:29 melodie well, to be frank I have yet to meet with the people loving it while using it on a daily basis
22:29 melodie on Fedora I'd suppose you use Gnome? Or is it Xfce or Lxde?
22:30 pdurbin gnome 3, yeah
22:31 pdurbin i still have the problem where my pointer jumps all around. :( I thought I had fixed it. T-T
22:32 melodie what is you gpu and graphics driver?
22:32 pdurbin 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
22:33 melodie which driver?
22:33 melodie Intel xyz?
22:33 pdurbin not sure
22:34 melodie well something such as:
22:34 melodie grep Driver /var/log/Xorg.0.log should tell you something
22:35 pdurbin X.Org Video Driver: 14.1
22:35 melodie this is not enough
22:36 melodie maybe if you scroll into the file, using whatever tool you want (more, less, or any text editor started as simple user should do)
22:37 melodie also in the graphics section in a "sudo lshw" you should find it
22:39 melodie pdurbin I think I've seen this issue in the paste but I can't remember the details. what is the brand an model computer where it happens?
22:41 melodie pdurbin would this help you? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1272624
22:42 melodie "his may be due to how the touchpad is detected as a PS/2 mouse instead of a more appropriate touchpad driver (...)"
22:42 pdurbin melodie: many detail about my laptop here (where I claimed to have fixed it): http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2014-03-24#i_8482831
22:42 pdurbin details*
22:42 * pdurbin runs yum install lshw
22:42 melodie :)
22:43 pdurbin vendor: Intel Corporation
22:43 pdurbin configuration: driver=i915 latency=0
22:44 melodie on this side it seems all ok to me, so the lead related to the touchpad seems one to be explored, so you might want to read the details of the ubuntu bug report above
22:44 melodie this might work in Fedora too, provided you adapt the information
22:45 pdurbin melodie: so in my case, my pointer jumps around (and clicks!) even when I'm not touching the touchpad. even when I'm just typing or whatever. it's ridiculous. no problem when i boot into windows.
22:45 pdurbin that bug report seems to be about actually touching the touchpad
22:50 melodie yes but the result seems the same, so maybe the solution to it would work for you?
22:51 melodie or a similar one?
22:51 melodie and have you tried changing the version of the kernel also?
22:51 melodie well the solution they point to would be here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad#Control_touchpad_features_using_synclient
22:56 melodie pdurbin also if you haven't yet, you might want to seek for some clues here: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:X220
22:57 melodie even if I haven't found a clue there
22:58 melodie I have to quit, good evening, and see you soon
23:04 pdurbin whoops, missed her. thanks, melodie
