Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been using my current setup for a few months now, and suddenly I am having an issue with my usb mouse. Both the keyboard and mouse are usb and both plug directly into the back of the machine.
Everything will work fine until I read a file off of a flash drive or my cell phone. When I do that, the mouse just stops where it is. Everything still works, the machine doesn't freeze, the mouse just quits. Unplugging and replugging the mouse does no good at all.
It funny because I have had the same things plugged into the usb ports for quite a while, and never had an issue, but now it happens every single time I try to write or read a file from a usb device. I have no idea where to even start. This is all that is there.

Hey Quads - Have similar issue. HSB mouse. Using jaunty - does not seem to be related to any particular app certainly not 2 you mentioned. Have been opening every log file I can find, no luck. Only way out seems to be Alt-F1 which brings up menu and allows me to restart the system. Ubuntu is suppose to be default usb mouse but it looks as if when I close an app the system looses track of the mouse cursor. I'm wondering if there is a way to 'hard wire' the mouse ref to the usb address. Haven't been on Linux long enough to know my way around the config files or the instructions required.
Will watch your post, maybe your soulution may apply.
