I've installed ubuntu 11.10 on a desktop computer, but it does not despond to any kind of mouse.

The mouse seems to be on, but the system doesn't respond not to the mouse movement nor to mouse clicks.

What can I do?

edit: All USBs are not working, not mice and not DOKs

sudo apt-get install synaptiks

Sorry, just checked and apparently my external hard drive fried all USB exits .___. – Gilad Naaman Dec 17 '11 at 19:09
No problem, install the drivers manually then – sum2000 Dec 17 '11 at 19:11
My point is there's no problem with drivers, I need to replace my mother board – Gilad Naaman Dec 17 '11 at 19:37
