    LXDE: Mouse stops working

    So basically, been working away on this one really annoying issue, not in any way made worst that I am working on it over the phone as it is my father in law, I promise

    So basically, what happens is that when he uses the laptop he gets to a point where the mouse just stops working, often he can still move the cursor, but it is stuck in input mode (or its an upper case I in the words of my mother in law).Keyboard works, and Alt+F1 changes to terminal, but I cant get the mouse back to working. Any ideas?

    The install is about two weeks and I have updated the system, the issue was there all the time I think, there was a second issue about system crashing as well, but that one is sorted (I think)

    Re: LXDE stole my mouse, and like a cat, it ain't gonna give it back

    Not sure I can help you all through your issue, but what kind of mouse is it ? Plain usb or wireless ? If wireless, no battery issue ? Does the track pad work ? You say this is a laptop, so I assume there is one. Does it stop working on any application or on specific ones ? Please also give some details about the laptop. Thanks.

    Think it is a acer laptop (will get model number)
    He is using the trackpad rather than a mouse. Seems to happen with all kind of applications, like chrome, the LX console and others.

    The mouse don't quite stop working, you can move the cursor, but you can't click anything, and whatever shape the pointer is when it happens will stay in.

    Please try
    Code:
     ibus exit
    and see if it helps.

    I shut down ibus the applet. Seemed to make it run a bit better, so will try ibus exit.
    Is there any way in lubuntu to stop ibus completely. Seems like a pretty useless application to me?

    Some uninstall it. I keep on running the exit command when logging in for now, will probably make an autostart file at some point when I get tired of it. Bug report : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1307648

    Re: LXDE stole my mouse, and like a cat, it ain't gonna give it back

    They ran ibus exit
    It still happens, so the machine SEEMS to be running perfectly, but you can't click anything on the screen, but you can move the mouse cursor as much as you like, and give keyboard commands...

    So that may be a video driver issue, please give the computer specs. Others will help you

    I wont be much able to help you with video, but just to make sure, have they tried another mouse, even borrowed from someone just to test ?
