I recently upgraded kernel to 3.5.0-21, running 12.10. I had to do this due to graphics card driver problems (nvidia quadro 1800 fx, using 304.48 driver), I logged two days ago and my graphics had gone to crap, eventually got the graphics sorted with using the new kernel. Now my USB mouse won't work. This is with a Logitech RX 250, same thing with a Dell usb mouse (not sure of model, not with me now)

It detects the mouse, but from what I can gather there is some issue with kernel/driver. Extracts from syslog and dmesg:

syslog:

Jan 7 11:26:40 tester kernel: [ 135.560284] usb 2-1.3: USB disconnect, device number 6

Jan 7 11:27:13 tester mtp-probe: bus: 2, device: 7 was not an MTP device

dmesg:

[ 1592.135264] usb 2-1.3: new low-speed USB device number 9 using ehci_hcd
[ 1592.233539] usb 2-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c050

[ 1592.233549] usb 2-1.3: Product: USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse
[ 1592.233552] usb 2-1.3: Manufacturer: Logitech

Any suggestions ? If i load a previous kernel, the mouse works, but graphics are totally screwed. It seems that getting a mouse to work should be easier than the graphics

Hi Kazman, did you by chance try that same Hard drive with Ubuntu in another motherboard BUT with the same video card and mouse? –  Luis Alvarado Jan 7 '13 at 3:18
    
Hi Luis. No, it is a laptop, have not changed any hardware. –  Kazman Jan 7 '13 at 3:32
    
Did you get this working I have the same issue. My wireless usb mouse stopped working. I have tried to different wireless sets that where working before and none are functional. Stefan –  user141533 Mar 19 '13 at 2:07
