Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I bought a new laptop and HP gave me a free WiFi mobile mouse, which not only is wireless, but also doesn't need a USB receiver to work.

The mouse, as stated in the user manual, can only be used in Windows 7, because it uses a technique called Microsoft Virtual Wireless.

Is there any chance I can use it in Linux, or more specifically, Ubuntu 11.10?
