Tweaking Ubuntu 16.04LTS

Still on my Ubuntu kick even 8 months later. I figured it’s about time to redo the laptop so I should mark down my notes.

I ended up installing the Unity Tweak Tool to make many changes I felt would benefit myself (yeah I even installed the Windows10 Icons Theme…)
sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool

I also fixed the scrolling issues with firefox. On the 7370 with touchscreen, touching the screen on any webpage in FF I was only selecting text and images which made my life more interesting.

sudo nano /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
Search for Exec
Exec=env MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 firefox %u
Save and close

Someone also pointed out that single vs double fingers may make a difference. It didn’t for me, but I’ll still make a note of it.
about:config to set dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled=1 (default was 2)

I’ll eventually have to set this up as my primary workstation and get Office to function correctly under wine.
