I'm using the BB10 simulator in "safe mode" in Ubuntu 12.10 and I want to change the zoom level using the "controller" utility.
Within the utility I'm able to connect to the simulator, but changing the zoom level doesn't work. I set a zoom level, click Apply and nothing happens in the simulator. Also, if I click the Change Zoom Level dialog and then re-open it, it shows the previous zoom level (100) not the one I entered.
I ran the controller from the console and no messages are shown when trying to change the zoom level.
*** UPDATE ****
Realised that I can't press any device buttons, rotate or basically do anything with the controller. The log of the controller says it's connected to the simulator.

I am having the same problem on Linux Mint.
I cannot start the simulator in normal mode, because it then stops somewhere in the boot process. So the only solutions I have found that works is to use the "safe mode". But in safe mode the controller doesn't seem to work.
I have used the same simulator and controller on Windows 7/8, and there it worked without any problems. I could just start the simulator in the normal mode, as would be expected. Then, pressing 'Apply' in the controller rescales the simulator in real time. But when I do just the same on Linux Mint, it doesn't work.
I find it really weird that the simulator is not working in Linux Mint in the normal mode. Because I guess the controller will only work if you are using the normal mode. So our root problem is probably: Why doesn't the simulator work on linux.
Has anyone ideas how I could make the emulator work in normal mode in Linux? Or any suggestions on fixing the above problems?

I have the same issue.
On Linux, only Safe mode works.
But there I am not able to change the zoom level.
A test under Windowes revealed the following:
While in normal mode, all controller functions incl. zoom work as expected.
In Safe mode, zoom doesnt work.
Sadly, When changing the zoom in normal mode, it stil lwill be at 100% in safe mode.
So, it seems it is not really a Linux problem, but more a limitation of the safe mode
