Exclamation Mouse is GONE


ok I disabled my touch pad since it was doing more harm than good while typing and my comp is at a desk 99% of the time at home anyways and while using sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to fix my overly large title bars I noticed that there was a setting to configure your mouse. I have a logitech and noticed it was an option I checked the box and such and logged out to check and see if it worked and logged back in and the mouse no longer works and I really would like to fix it cause I don't want to reinstall ubuntu and/or just use Windows.

Thanks ahead of time for any help

Try
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
and see if it works, you're current xorg.conf file will get backed up when you do this, so if it messes anything up you can revert it.

Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 (or F2,F3,...,F6) and there you can login to a CLI (command line interface). There you can type the command I gave you earlier.
