Do you guys have any idea why my microsoft wireless 4000 usb mobile blue track mouse will not work with Ubuntu 12.04? I have searched many forums and can't really find any usefull information. It's what I used before I totally ditched windows and switched to linux, I have not used tis operating system that long so any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance.

Is the mouse not working at all, or is it jittery (sluggish) – Jack Dec 20 '12 at 4:29
