The left mouse button stops working after 5 or 10 minutes of running Ubuntu 10.10. It is a Logitech MX 1000 wireless USB mouse. Also is there a way to emulate the left mouse click on the keyboard? Mouse pointer move fine, right button works, wheel works.


I had exactly the same problem. Here's how to solve it. Open a terminal and type:

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

...and when the update/upgrade is complete, reboot your system and VOILA! The mouse (including left-click) works.


I had this problem. In the end, I tried another mouse, and it worked - decided it was a hardware issue... mice do break!
