This may not apply though I went between dell and logitech support to find out why my logitech BT mice never autoconnect back to the systems and nobody ever supports it. I had to learn the hard way.

try to upgrade the kernel.. that might work.. do it with "sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-trusty" I know that you're unable to type with your keyboard but you can copy and paste this command. This worked well to me for recognizing a usb webcam and my touch screen. It's about the drivers.

i'm assuming you are using 14.04.. the mouse/touchpad inside system settings and each have their own sensitivity level sliders. i've not tried using anything other than my built-in touchpad. but since the new release has settings for each, why not disable your touchpad via function keys, and then see if changing the settings have any effect on the ...

Try installing dconf-editor and use it to edit the motion-acceleration and motion-threshold keys in org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse. Those are the numbers the slider in the settings dialog is supposed to change.

There is also an application solaar which programs Logitech devices using Logitech's "universal" USB wireless plug.

I managed to solve this today, with help of very useful information in the Arch Linux wiki. Basically, in Ubuntu 14.04 you need to create a copy of an X11 config file and add your scrolling and clicking-by-tapping options. You can find full instructions in a GitHub repo of mine that I keep for future reference. The options you're probably interested in ...

Please try this: Reboot, but do not log in on the GUI. Try to open a text terminal somehow (virtual termina, or by ssh) and see whether that's stable. (I asked this as comment originally. It did work to get a stable text terminal as hoped.) Now, assuming that works - great! Now, you have a broken system, and an old version "12.04 LTS". Fixing is easier ...
