Exclamation USB mouse problem..........


I just installed the 64-bit version of kubuntu gutsy gibbon, as I wanted to experience the entire capacity of my AMD64 processor. However, my USB mouse isn't working. The cursor works just like normal, but doesn't move. Does anybody have any idea to resolve this issue?

Hi,


Check the "protocol" in your xorg.conf

Normally, in some cases, changing it to

Code:
Option  "Protocol" "auto"
Solves the problem

Or, you have the wrong device configured, the most common configuration is:

Code:
Option  "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
If you have something different, try using that device path



Regards

Thumbs up thanks

Hi,

After some circus with just the keyboard (the pointer wasn't moving) I managed to fix it. Thanks a lot.

Regards
