Mouse freakout in Redhat 8


I installed redhat 8 yesterday. The mouse worked fine. I booted today to find the mouse sticks in the top right corner of the screen and when I try and move it the curser jumps all over the place clicking at random.

Any thoughts on how I can correct this?

What did you use to reconfigure it? Have you used redhat-config-mouse

Also have you tried moving the mouse at a terminal windows to see how it responds there?

are you using a laptop? cause i know that there are known issues with mouse configuarations, if you try to unplug the mouse and use the touchpad.

Maybe this helped when you restarted your computer?
