Mouse failure after starting compiz
Following my upgrade to Ubuntu 8.10_64 whenever I start compiz my mouse fails. I normally use a cordless Logitech 5 button mouse and immediately am unable to left click onto most icons. The worst affected application is Firefox (only because it is very mouse reliant), by accident I found that the secondary left click (direction) button will open an icon but I need to right click on the secondary button - then "open in new tab" to go to any url required. Additionally the operation of the mouse appears to be somewhat random in that it does not always do the same thing.
I have tried a standard usb three button mouse (Logitech left, right and wheel), as soon as compiz is started the left and right buttons do nothing.
My use of a computer means that I have a minimum of 1 Word, 3 Spreadsheets and 2 Draw files open in OpenOffice at any time, moving between them often, also Firefox and Thunderbird are used extensively. Compiz has made this very easy to maintain, I am now lost without it.
As I have not seen any other thread remotely like this I can only assume that I am at fault. The setup is precisely the same as it was when I used 8.04, in desperation I went so far as to reinstall, but of course /home is still the same so my settings will also be.
I use an AMD Athlon 64.
If anyone is able to help I'd be most grateful.
