I am having an issue with my usb mouse(cyborg rat 7) I purchased this mouse for the comfort and high dpi, and just made the switch to Ubuntu today, and would really like to stay with this. But I need the mouse for work.

The problem is that shortly after connecting the mouse I lose left click functions and have to disconnect and reconnect the mouse. I tried a solution listed in another question by "malisha" -

sudo apt-get repository ppa:raof/aubergine
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

but I got the error "E: invalid operation repository" when I try to enter the first line in the terminal.

Any help with this will be great thanks.

You have the wrong syntax. It should be:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:raof/aubergine

apt-get install is for installing

Add a repo with add-apt-repository.
