    Angry My mouse has decided that today is opposite day

    Hello! The external mouse on my Lenovo Thinkpad T470s running Ubuntu 20.04.1 has suddenly decided that it is going to move in the opposite of whatever direction I move it. Up is down, down is up, right is left, left is right. No other issues that I've noticed, trackpad is working fine. The mouse was connected through the USB port on my monitor, I have since tried moving it to the actual USB port on the laptop with the same effect. I've installed all updates and rebooted a few times to no effect. Trackpad is working fine. I've double checked mouse settings and done some initial googling, no luck yet. Any ideas about where to look next?

    Thanks!

    Maybe try another mouse, the more "generic" the better. If it works as it should it rules out any OS/software issue.
