I have a Dell e4300 that is having some irregular mouse driver issues with a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 x64. I have used other versions of Ubuntu without issue. Windows works fine, so it appears the hardware is working properly. This leads me to believe a driver issue, however I am in need of some direction.
Keep in mind that all this is with a fresh install. No Docking Station, Only a USB Microsoft Intellimouse. These issues occur with/without the mouse connected.
Issue Scenario 1: When I am typing my password to login to the box, if I place the mouse cursor at a location on the left side of the password window, I can type the password normally until I type to the right of the mouse. At that point, every keypress moves the cursor to the mouse location, then inputs the key. If I move the mouse outside of the text box, the focus is removed from the text field after each keypress. This allows one character to be entered at a time. I can login successfully if the mouse is moved to the very right of the text field.
Issue Scenario 2: Once logged in, I will often be required to press a key on the keyboard to be able to click on something/anything within Gnome. The keyboard press does not seem to actually input anything, just allows the mouse to click.
Issue Scenario 3: When I attempt to highlight a group of text, the OS automatically will copy the text. When I attempt to type, the mouse would take the cursor focus (similar to Scenario 1), and also copy that previous text. If I attempt to type multiple characters, it will paste the information at the mouses location within the text field multiple times.
I have tried: to Reinstall. Updated all patches load various drives through the software
I can get around Linux/Terminal, so I do not consider myself new. However I am certainly not a pro.
