I am trying to get panning work for my Asus eeePc 701. I installed Xubuntu 12.04 on it (runs great), but it won't move the visible area of the screen around when moving the mouse to the screen borders. Moving windows with the Alt key doesn't work either.
The xrandr command I used is
xrandr --output LVDS1 --fb 800x600 --panning 800x600
