I have been a Linux user for a number of years, and about a year on this very system I'm reporting for. It was running xubuntu perfectly up to about a week ago. I have automatic updates on it, and I believe it was after an update. Mouse just randomly stops working for a few seconds, you cannot move it nor click it. This can happen in succession for a number of times. It is so annoying, I would have reinstalled the whole thing if I did not have important work on it. I have verified it with a different mouse, and also tried Windows 10 that I have on dual boot. Windows does not have any problems.
It is the latest kernel on Ryzen 3 and GeForce 1070ti with proprietary drivers. Any help would be appreciated.
