I have a Cyborg R.A.T 9 mouse and when ever I plug it into my computer, I can't left click. Strangely enough, the mouse works fine at the login screen, but not after I log in. I'm also not able to alt+tab to other programs.

I've looked through the other questions for the R.A.T. 3, 5, and 7 mouses, but none of them have solutions that work.

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.1 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T520.

Does this help? (note that after you press the first key combination your desktop disappears, so read ahead and know what the second one is since that brings it back) – Tom Brossman Dec 21 '12 at 21:54
Nope :( It doesn't change anything... – kelvinafox Dec 22 '12 at 0:00
