View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mouse randomly stops working
October 30th, 2011, 11:24 PM
I tried both USB and wireless and after a certain length of time, the mouse just stops working. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Is it every USB port?

I know this might sound a little nutty, but:
If your PC is using an Nvidia video card, please be sure to load the current driver for 11.10 rather then the one loaded when 11.10 installed.
I think that may solve your issues based on what I saw on one of my 3 systems I now have running on 11.10; until I ran all the updates and loaded the most current Nvidia driver the mouse would hang sometimes.
If your system is not running Nvidia, then please ignore this post.

Yes I tried every USB port, and we do use NVidia. I will try it and see what happens

My HP laptop with nVidia will still get a mouse (well, track pad) 'hang' about every 12th time I run 'update manager'. It does not seem to hang at any other time. Logging off and back on clears the hang and I am off and running again.
So the current updates helped (reduced the number occurrences), but has not solved it 100%.
p.s. no mouse hanging issues with my EeePC Netbook or my desktop running 11.10.
