Hello, I am new to Ubuntu in general and especially this forum and I hope I go about this the right way...

I installed Ubuntu 12.10 yesterday and I'm having some issues with my mouse and I have no idea how to determine whats wrong. The problem is that, after a while (seems totally arbitrarily), the mouse pointer starts to behave extremely laggy while, as far as I can tell, everything else works fine. System monitor says that CPU load is around zero and memory usage about 1 GB (with 5 more to spare). No process looks weird to me.

The mouse is a logitech mx518. A reboot seems to resolve the problem until it occurs again without warning. Unplugging and replugging the mouse does not help.

I am very grateful for any help resolving this. I do not know if there is any other information that I can share with you, but if you let me know I will be happy to provide!
