Debian squeeze / Gnome - is the graphical interface dying?

About a year ago I ran into a problem: at any random moment, the graphical interface simply stops responding to input devices. All applications continue to work, messages arrive in IM, pop-up windows appear, it’s interesting that the cursor moves with the mouse, but nothing can be done. I sit and watch. A few months ago, it was decided to switch to the next desktop and back (Ctrl + Alt + to the right). Now, even this does not help (although the problem began to occur much less frequently - on...

Problems with a laptop under Ubuntu Linux 11.10

The other day I bought myself a MSI GE620DX-285XRU laptop as a replacement for an old HP, moreover a very tasty filling was offered at a price of 26k rubles - Intel Core i5-2410M, NV GF 555M with 2 gigabytes of dedicated memory , 4 gigabytes of RAM and LED-matrix, a full-fledged keyboard with island-type keys, a dedicated digital block, and even without an OS crammed with crapworm. In general, almost the dream of a linuksoid (gloss, his mother spoils the whole impression). Well, I naturally ... Read more

How to set up scrolling an element by holding the middle mouse button in Linux Xorg?

I want to make it so that when the middle (or right) button of the mouse is held down, dragging the mouse up and down scrolls the current interface element up and down, i.e. did scrolling also as if I was pulling the scroll bar to the right. This is how scrolling works on a laptop through the touchpad with two fingers up and down, but on a full computer there is no touchpad, but I really want to scroll;) As far as I understood, you need to dig somewhere in the garden xorg xinput.
