    13.04 - Mouse and trackpad unresponsive

    I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my laptop, as I was unable to boot a 12.10 Live CD.

    During the installation, everything worked just fine. But after the installation, my mouse and trackpad are no longer working.
    I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the USB mouse, but this doesn't solve the issue.
    I've tried connecting several other USB mouses, all have the same issue.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Ok, I got my mouse to work using the num-pad arrow keys so I could check a couple of things.
    It appears that I am not only missing my mouse, but also any network connectivity. This is really strange, as networking was working perfectly fine in the Live environment...

    What make/model of laptop do you have? Are you using wireless or wired network connection?

    It's a custom build, based on a Clevo P150EM (http://www.clevo.com.tw/en/products/...?productid=384).
    Both wired and wireless are not working.

    Wireless card is an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235
    Touchpad is a Synaptics Touchpad V7.2 on PS/2

    I just tried a newer daily build of 13.04, and this time I get a warning that my screen, video card and input devices could not be recognized by Ubuntu.
    There is no way to close the screen, and a hard reset is the only way out.

    I had the exact same problem with my laptop. I ran across Husain's Chronicle where he mentioned that everyone who used UNetbootIn to build USB key installation media had this problem. It seemed strange to me that the USB Live Image would work fine but the install would break. Still, when I went back and used a different program to copy the ISO to the drive and reinstalled, it worked fine for me.

    I hope that fix works for you, too.

    Here's Husain's article:

    Here's my experience if it helps:
