I've installed Ubuntu on my system and haven't been using mice till now. Today I plugged in my USB mouse and it doesn't work from computer boot-up. The mouse has no problems working on Windows systems, but there is only Ubuntu installed on my system. Keyboard and touchpad are working fine, but this mouse thing is making me crazy.

I've checked all the solutions on the net so far, nothing changed. Any ideas?

Does it appear in the device list when you issue <code>lsusb</code> from a Terminal? –  Phoeey Sep 15 '13 at 14:13
