Laptop running intrepid. Touchpad is working fine, but I'd like to install this swiss army, tiny usb mouse. When I plug it in, I can see by the optical light that it gets power, but nothing else. Here might be some helpful outputs:


ryan@ryan-laptop:~$ dmesg | tail

Don't know how, but it just started working all of a sudden. I'd still like an explanation if someone has one.
