    Wireless mouse not working

    I have a wireless mouse and keyboard. The keyboard is working fine on Ubuntu but the Mouse isn't, I can't click on anything. The cursor moves around fine though (Microsoft Wireless Mouse 700 V2.0)

    I have two operating systems, XP and now Ubuntu, so a dual boot.

    The Mouse works fine on XP, however on Ubuntu it will work for around 5 minutes and then randomly stop clicking.


    What can I do?

    Thanks

    I'm no expert but you might try System/Administration/Hardware Drivers and let it look for a better driver. Then select and activate the one labeled "recommended" if it is not already active. If that doesn't work, try System/Administration/Software Sources and check some of the unchecked sources, especially "proprietary drivers". Then System/Administration/update manager and press the check button. Install any updates, then go back and try step one, System/Administration/Hardware Drivers and let it look for a better driver. Then select and activate the one labeled "recommended" if it is not already active. It's worth a try.
