Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I had 11.10 working great on my lenovo Y560, but upgrading to 12.04 has been a disaster -- mostly because I can't get the mouse cursor to move, and most of the keyboard is useless too (of course I've tried plugging other keyboards and mice in) -- so I can't do a thing.

(This of course stops me from being able to see if there are any other problems too.)

I tried downloading the precise iso (amd64 because this is a 64 bit machine) and installing from the CD -- everything works fine from the CD, and then on first reboot -- back to no-can-do-anything due to crippled mouse and keyboard.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! This question should instead be filed as a bug report, thanks! Instructions here. –  Jorge Castro Apr 30 '12 at 21:46
The installation actually seems to be fairly complete, although I'm not having much luck making my way around with just the keyboard. The definite problems seem to be: 1) mouse frozen -- and 2) no internet connection any more –  andrew Apr 30 '12 at 21:53
um, i am trying to report this as a bug, but i don't know what package it should be, and of course i can't click on anything, and besides there's no internet connection, so i'll try to report it from this other machine –  andrew Apr 30 '12 at 22:18
Type ubuntu-bug xorg in a terminal, that should do it. –  Jorge Castro Apr 30 '12 at 22:20
i would think that perhaps this should be left open until a bug report has been found for it (or created) in case some one comes along who can link to a relevant-seeming bug report –  andrew Apr 30 '12 at 22:22
