Ok first of all I made a mistake. I got 2 usb-dongles that look exactly the same, one is for the keyboard one for the mouse (they were both not working on linux mint).
I used the good mouse usb dongle to test it on my windows pc, and then I some how mixed them up and start testing the keyboard USB dongle with the mouse on linux mint. So this obviously will never work. This means that the device ID posted above ID 1d57:32da
is actually the ID for the keyboard USB dongle. The ID for the mouse USB dongle is ID 0603:1602
This does not take away the fact that these things still dont work on the linux mint netbook. I just mixed them up while posting this information here, but before I tested both already and they were not working and they are still not.
Then second, my usb.ids was from the date 2011, so it was heavily outdate. I dont understand why it didnt update with the command:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install usbutils
But it doesnt matter, I did it mannually like you said. Rebooted. Still not working. The only thing that changed now is when I run the command lsusb, it lists the 'string' aswell next to the ID. So in the case of my mouse and keyboard usb dongle:
pau@pau-1005PE ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 13d3:5111 IMC Networks Integrated Webcam
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 0603:1602 Novatek Microelectronics Corp.
Bus 002 Device 077: ID 1d57:32da Xenta 2.4GHz Receiver (Keyboard and Mouse)
So just to be clear.
ID 0603:1602 is mouse usb dongle
ID 1d57:32da is keyboard usb dongle
There is another problem aswel, when I have both USB dongles in the netbook and I run the lsusb command it sometimes does not recognize 1, or both of the dongles. But it changes sporadically.., that is weird to right? It should recognize them always when they are in the netbook I guess.., but it seems like it doesnt.
Anyway, what else can we do. Or is this the last hope.
Thanks for your help btw, much apreciated!
