drivers for packard bell wireless mouse mod C-3UP needed

I am new to linux. I recently acquired a Packard Bell wireless mouse Mod. C-3UP which with a 3 1/2 floppy and my laptop does not have a 3 1/2 floppy drive!

I hope there's some way to access the relevant drivers that will enable me to use my mouse!

I don't think you need a specific driver, anyhow the one on the floppy should be for Windows, thus is useless in your case.

Just plug plug-in the USB receiver and try to use it.

FYI I saw that on a review:
If you have problems with connecting this Packard Bell C - 3UP Cordless mouse, you basically need to do the following (in this order!): 

1. Press the black button under the receiver so that the LED is flashing 

2. Press the grey button under the mouse. 

After steps 1 and 2, the mouse should be synchronised and work perfectly. 

Good luck :)...
Please tell us if it works or not.

I'm sorry for the delay in replying.

The procedure did not work! So I am currently using an ordinary USB Mouse.
