Re: 11.04 - Mouse randomly stops working inside applications
Occasionally but not always my mouse responds by my hitting the ESC button. So far in the past 2 days the mouse has behaved itself. On Monday of this week I took a chance because of this bad behavior of restarting the machine and booting to Win7 again. After 2 months of using Ubuntu Win7 must have learned its lesson by its being banished and started working again. 2 days later I booted up again into Ubuntu and so far the mouse has behaved itself. I love that command that you've posted above and tried it. This is the output. If it makes any sense to anyone as a direction to a possible solution can someone let me know?
paulw@ubuntu:~$ xinput list

When in doubt, check it out!
If all else fails, check the plug!
