    Mouse not working, but tablet is

    So i have a HP tx2000 tablet PC with a Wacom tablet built in. upon installing karmic the wacom works perfectly, but it seems to be overriding my mouse and touchpad since niether of those work.
    This is a completely clean install, i have installed no drivers pertaining to my problem.

    also, sudo cat /dev/psaux shows they are working perfectly.

    Thankful for any help..

    No ideas?

    Would removing wacom help?

    Hi Pansartax,

    Welcome to Ubuntu Forums!

    Usually it's the other way around. Since the wacom.fdi is numbered 10 and the Synaptic .fdi 11, the Synaptic .fdi runs after the wacom one. It's almost always Synaptic grabbing things inappropriately.

    I doubt it's Wacom causing the problem. What mouse are you plugging in? I assume it's a portable usb type. It could be X doesn't know whether to designate the pad or the mouse the core pointer.

    You should take a look at:
    xinput --list
    and your lshal:
    and see if you can tell what's going on.
    Looking at your Xorg.0.log in /var/log/ will also probably be helpful.
