Setting Up a Bluetooth Mouse

I purchased a Logitech V470 Bluetooth mouse for use with a laptop with an internal Bluetooth radio. Setting up Bluetooth input devices in Ubuntu 8.04 is easy (there’s no command line or config files), but not entirely straightforward.

Get Screen Actions for your Mouse on Linux

If you are one who strives for greater productivity on computers you probably know that having to switch between the keyboard and the mouse in the middle of your work is so painful. While keyboard buffs can use shortcuts to remain at the keyboard, what if you mostly interact with the mouse? Or what if you don’t want to memorize shortcut keys?

Auto-Hide Your Mouse Pointer When Idle With “Unclutter”

There was some recent discussion on one of the local User Group lists this week about “What is your favorite underdog OSS application?” This discussion brought out quite a few of the little never-heard-of applications, yet many of them have proven to be really useful! If you’ve never spent an hour or two poking around the less-popular section of the repositories you’ll be surprised what you find in there!

Share a single mouse, keyboard and clipboard between multiple computers

Once upon a time… I sat beneath a person who tried to show me something on his GNU/Linux desktop.

But hey: He just moved his mouse across the boarder of his screen and the mouse pointer appeared on the screen of the other computer.

Install btnx for better mouse control in Ubuntu Hardy

When I installed Hardy, I forgot to copy my awesome xorg.conf which held the configuration to enable all 12 buttons of my Logitech MX1000. Lo and behold, a new method of configuring it has come about, albeit it was around prior to Gutsy.

Get the most out of your mouse with btnx

When you have shelled out for a swanky mouse like the Logitech VX Nano, you want to make the most out of your investment, which means making its programmable buttons work. However, many Linux distributions recognize most mice as generic pointing devices, so none of the fancy extra buttons work right out of the box. The btnx utility can help you to turn your mouse into the versatile tool it is meant to be.

Using mouse gestures across Linux

My first brush with mouse gestures on the Opera browser was an accident, but the ability to quickly move backward or forward in the browser history, open new windows, close tabs, and more without using the menus or moving the mouse toward the navigation toolbar won me over immediately. Nowadays, this feature is available in Firefox and Konqueror too, and you can even configure mouse gestures for GNOME and KDE desktop environments.

synergy: sharing the keyboard and mouse

There are many occasions at which a user needs to use two computers at the same time, even with two different operating systems, all in the same desktop. One of the most annoying things that might happen is that you will need to use a different set of keyboard and mouse for each computer with the resulting waste of space on your table.
