Unhappy Screen brightness problem + mouse sticks.


I have a Samsung R510 FAADUK which I just upgraded to Xubuntu 11.10.
My mouse (both mouse and mousepad) seem to be stick while moving.
Also if I move my mouse pointer in one direction, and then change the direction it sticks (not for long, but it is irritating.
This is a problem since I upgraded to 11.10 last night, so I'm hoping it's just an option I can change.


The brightness issue is something I've had a problem with since I got linux. The Fn up and down are detected, it shows brightness increasing or decreasing, but the actual brightness don't actually change.


Random point, the new 11.10 xubuntu has a cool background when logging in (black, with dots in a square pattern (I suck at explaining) and says 11.10 xubuntu). where can I get this as a background?

Slight chance it's not a mouse problem, and my laptop has started lagging ever 30 seconds or so (it shouldn't)
