I am running Ubuntu 16.04LTS (You can view the system details here) on my PC and have recently experienced an apparent common fault - when turning on the Corsair Void Headset, my mouse becomes unusable (as in, clicking links has no effect).
Here is the result of a
lshw for the Void Headset (mouse and keyboard):
*-usb:0 description: Human interface device product: Corsair VOID RGB Wireless Gaming Headset vendor: Corsair physical id: 2 bus info: usb@3:2 version: 0.00 capabilities: usb-1.10 configuration: driver=usbhid maxpower=500mA speed=12Mbit/s *-usb:1 description: Mouse product: Corsair Gaming Scimitar RGB Mouse vendor: Corsair physical id: 3 bus info: usb@3:3 version: 2.03 serial: 15032016AEAA1003550F1E8AF5001942 capabilities: usb-2.00 configuration: driver=usbhid maxpower=300mA speed=12Mbit/s *-usb:3 description: Keyboard product: Corsair K95 RGB Gaming Keyboard vendor: Corsair physical id: 9 bus info: usb@3:9 version: 2.04 serial: 1300C019AE3D8C805397BBE7F5001947 capabilities: usb-2.00 configuration: driver=usbhid maxpower=500mA speed=12Mbit/s
For the actual USB controller, I can provide the following:
*-usb:2 description: USB controller product: 9 Series Chipset Family USB EHCI Controller #1 vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 1d bus info: pci@0000:00:1d.0 version: 00 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm debug ehci bus_master cap_list configuration: driver=ehci-pci latency=0 resources: irq:23 memory:f7a1a000-f7a1a3ff *-usbhost product: EHCI Host Controller vendor: Linux 4.4.0-22-generic ehci_hcd physical id: 1 bus info: usb@2 logical name: usb2 version: 4.04 capabilities: usb-2.00 configuration: driver=hub slots=2 speed=480Mbit/s *-usb description: USB hub vendor: Intel Corp. physical id: 1 bus info: usb@2:1 version: 0.00 capabilities: usb-2.00 configuration: driver=hub slots=8 speed=480Mbit/s
Full hardware list can be located here. I had a quick look at this post and could see a gentlemen suggest the following:
lsusb to obtain the information on the USB dongle
nano the following line:
options usbhid quirks=0x1b1c:0x1b27:0x0004" (Where the ID's matched your USB)
/etc/modprobe.d/ calling it
usbhid.conf and lastly run
"mkinitcpio -p linux" however
mkiniticpio is not installed on Ubunut (if this is even a package to install, I've just started reading about it).
My only current solution would be to not need to turn the headset on (i.e. not need to press the power button to enable) as I believe this is where the fault is.
I'll keep digging and update this question, but any assistance is appreciated.
