    thanks, my mistake, its lubuntu 18.04.4 Bionic Beaver LTS. I have run the command as asked, please find it below. – Orosjopie Feb 28 at 17:25
  • 1) I put the lsusb data into the Question instead of an Answer, and that's what we need. 2) Does that mouse work on other PCs? 3) Changed the batteries? 4) Would you please go to the end of the Answer below and delete it, as well as each of your Comments above, to make room for more Comments from others. – K7AAY Feb 28 at 18:10
