My mouse can still move but is unable to interact with the windows under certain conditions. alt-tab doesn't work. but i can kinda use my desktop with my keyboard. I want to report this bug but don't know under witch package to file it in launchpad. Can annyone point me in the right direction?
I had the same issue when plugging in my Cyborg RAT 7 mouse. To fix this (at least for my mouse, maybe yours too), add this to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (create the file if it's not there):
Section "InputClass" Identifier "Mouse Remap" MatchProduct "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T.7 Mouse" MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*" Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11 12 0 0 0" EndSection
Log out and log back in and your mouse should work fine. Change the MatchProduct line and ButtonMapping (if necessary) to match your mouse.
I have the same issue. I just upgraded to 12.04 from 11.10. When I log in, one of the following happens:
- I can't click anything. I have to ALT+CTRL+DEL, then log out.
- My mouse works fine, until I use it to launch something. For instance, if I launch my browser or terminal, I can no longer use the mouse*.
*Sometimes I can click the bar at the top of the window (i.e. I can click the task bar area near the time, or minimize the window).
My keyboard still works. I can still press the Start button on my keyboard and open the dash, and type. I just can't click properly! Is there anything like xprop or xwininfo that can tell me what has stolen my mouse?
This bug has been solved for me if of course i was suffering from it :) my symptoms where:
-mouse failing to get focus on various windows -keyboad alt-tab also not responding -unity keeps focus -and other kinds of weird behaviour of the mouse
How? Regular ubuntu update on 09-05-2012.
Thank you Ubuntu
*edit: bug is still there
