Logitech MarbleMouse in Debian

Posted 03-02-2009 at 12:37 AM by kmoffat

I have made this mouse scroll by using the ball and holding the small left button, in both Debian sid and Ubuntu 8.10. These procedures are entirely different! Ubuntu has an unconventional (or perhaps just more up-to-date) xorg configuration method.

Ati Video problem

I have an install of Debian unstable that recently had a pile of upgrades, and afterward had extremely slow scrolling in Iceweasel/Firefox/Epiphany and even Opera. I have the fglrx drivers installed.

Perhaps I'll try an aptitude reinstall fglrx to see what happens.

In the mean time I have installed...

OK, had you read my other post on gnuCash, you know that I hate gnome dependencies. Some of the programs I use have up to 5 gnome dependencies and I don't feel it's worth it to install them. But I managed to compile them into the gtkpod binary using static libs. This goes against everything slackware has taught, but I feel that it was worth it in the end.

Basically, I have a build script that builds gtkpod. Before it does that, it will build its gnome dependencies as static libs...

Having used Ubuntu as my main OS for over 3 years, I'm still a Linux beginner. Ubuntu has made it (relatively) easy to do my day to day computing, and the forums make it easy to fix things that go/are wrong.

I recently pulled out and dusted off a previously obsoleted box that I bought when I was living in Perth in 2000/2001. I was never a gamer so system specs were never too much of an issue. This baby has 64MB of RAM and a Celeron processor.
