I'm new to Ubuntu and have just installed 12.04 amd64 on a separate parition on my laptop.
All is working fine except when I have my USB mouse plugged in, the buttons on both my mouse and trackpad cease to work. I can move the cursor around on both, just not click anything. When I remove the USB mouse, the buttons on the trackpad start to work again.
I've read around and used the terminal to find out if both are recognised, which they seem to be, but I can't get it to work. I really like using an external mouse so if anyone has any suggestions I would be most grateful. I am not running any software, this is straight from boot.
My mouse is a Saitek RAT7 gaming mouse and my Laptop is a PCSpecialist laptop with i7 3610, I have both USB2 and USB3, neither of which seem to make a difference.
