View Full Version : [xubuntu] P2S mouse problem on Dell Latitude LS

September 10th, 2008, 01:27 PM
I'm relatively new to Linux and have dabbled with ubuntu and xubuntu over the past couple of weeks. I have now installed xubuntu (HH 8.04) onto a Dell Latitude LS. The touchpad works fine. At the back of the laptop is a P2S port which has both a mouse and keyboard symbol which, I guess, means that either should plug into it and work. It also has a single USB port. My problem is that the P2S mouse does not work at all (it is an optical mouse and lights up OK). If I plug in a USB mouse then this works OK. However, I don't want to use my only USB port for a mouse.

My question is:-

How can I get the P2S port to recognise the mouse?

Thanks in advance.
