One of the things that bothered me when I switched to Ubuntu was the mouse: while the Mouse settings panel offered options to change the cursor speed, I couldn’t change the scroll wheel settings: I wanted it to be faster, and I wanted it to use Mac OS’ natural scrolling direction.
After a bit of googling, this specific answer helped me get this fixed.
First, you get a list of the different devices linked to your machine, then you check the settings for one of the devices (number 10 in my case), and use
set-prop to customize a specific setting.
-1 got me the natural scrolling back. Victory!
xinput list-props 10
xinput set-prop 10 'Evdev Scrolling Distance' -1 5 5
Now if only I could do something to get all my additional buttons back, that’d be great! :)
There are lots of things to say about WordPress today!
Yesterday we saw quite a bit of activity on twitter
about a new theme company, yummthemes
, coming as a competitor to woothemes and Thesis among others.
One theme has been introduced so far, osea
, and it seems interesting even if we have no notions about the price or the conditions attached to that theme coming up in the middle of July.
However the landing page announcing this new theme club seems a bit wrong to me, simply because it shows other WordPress theme developers as competitors when the WordPress community tries to avoid such approach by linking to each other and maintaining good relationship between themselves.
Here is the opinion of the guys from the Couch! Make sure you check the comments as well as yummthemes’ owner has expressed his opinion about all this!
Then some nice tutorials:
And a nice WordPress theme:
