HP dm3t Ubuntu - toggle touchpad on/off

I found the following fix on this website, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1359140&highlight=hp+dm3

Step 1 - create a script to toggle the touchpad.

Create a script in /usr/local/bin named mousetoggle.sh (don't forget to make it executable)


if [ -e /tmp/mouse-disabled ]; then
rm -f /tmp/mouse-disabled
xinput set-int-prop 'ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse' 'Device Enabled' 8 1
touch /tmp/mouse-disabled
xinput set-int-prop 'ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse' 'Device Enabled' 8 0

Step 2 - create a keyboard shortcut to execute this script when the key above the touchpad is pressed.

* Go to System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts
* Click on Add to add a new shortcut
* * name = Toggle Touchpad
* * command = /usr/local/bin/mousetoggle.sh
* click the word 'disabled' next to the new shortcut and press the key above the touchpad
* close the keyboard shortcuts menu

HP DM3T Linux touch pad scrolling issue

Ever since I loaded Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP dm3t laptop the scrolling on the right side of the touch pad has not worked. I found a fix on this web site, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1467503.

sudo modprobe -r psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps

JoikuSpot 3.0 released

You can download this update from http://www.joikuspot.com/mobile/
This corrects the Nokia N97 Maps issue with the previous version of JoikuSpot.

Nokia N97 wireless static IP address

Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Destinations

Enter the "destination" containing the access point that is your WLAN. Edit that access point.

Options > Advanced settings > IPv4 settings

Enter the phone's IP address and you will then be prompted to enter other key pieces of information such as the subnet mask, default gateway and nameserver addresses.

I really like my Nokia N97 camera

I'm no photographer, but I like this picture taken with my N97 camera phone.

JoikuSpot and Nokia n97 BUG!

I have found a serious issue with JoikuSpot Professional and Nokia n97 maps v3.04. Everytime I start up Maps and initiate a search, the screen goes white and the phone crashes. I have been able to duplicate this over and over. After uninstalling JoikuSpot, Maps works fine. I was running the latest JoikuSpot Professional.
