    Mouse freezing briefly, often

    For several weeks now, I'd say, my mouse has been hanging briefly (up to a few seconds). It comes back, but it still gets annoying since it happens fairly often. I thought maybe it was related to disk or cpu load, but then I saw the following in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log. It repeats many times, and I suspect it's the culprit. I'm not actually physically removing my mouse. Does anyone know what's going on? Do I need a new mouse?

    Thanks,
    Reid

    If the mouse is USB, then read below:

    I suspect it maybe the USB stuff.
    I had all my USB running fine in FC28, then I changed to FC29, and voilla, no longer dependable, i.e. I would try to copy large files from an external Hard Drive in a docking station, and it would I/O error out.
    I changed the ports many times to no avail.

    The only thing that helped me at the end was to put amd_iommu=pt (I am on Ryzen) in the /etc/default/grub CMDLINE line.

    I have an 8-year old Intel something-or-other desktop here, but yes, it's USB. I'm not sure if that grub line is appropriate for me, but I'll look into it. Interestingly, this seems to come and go. It's been okay for awhile now. I keep hoping a kernel update will magically fix things.

    Thanks,
    Reid

    Re: Mouse freezing briefly, often

    I have ad that, system freezes, now freeze when writing to drives and when notifications pop up.
    I reinstalled and so far the system doesn't lock up as often. freezes are temporary.
    Also I can be typing and it won't show up for a long time.
    pasting text into vim takes a long time and only part of the text shows a little at a time.
    I am getting up the energy to reinstall the whole system again.

    Well that doesn't sound encouraging! I don't often reboot, but eventually memory usage forces it, and that does seem to help a bit.

    Re: Mouse freezing briefly, often

    I am about ready to reinstall again.
    I switched my default video player from Videos to VLC and the settings window didn't update and would not close.
    When playing videos now VLC opens two windows playing the video in the smaller window with no controls.
    Typing in vim means that it takes seconds to display the text.
    So what choice do I have.
    I don't get it but I'm not alone in criticism as Linus Torvalds just pointed out that our desktops are not working together to improve the system as a whole.
