My touchpad mouse is working fine, but my external USB mouse don't, he's dead...in my computer, in others works fine.

I already tried the solutions from: USB mouse is not working for Ubuntu 14.04 after updating

and: USB Mouse not working after installing Ubuntu 16.04 - Persistent Fix?

But still is not working.

The lsbusb recognizes it as you can see:

$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0cf3:e006 Atheros Communications, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:0129 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 064e:9209 Suyin Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 015: ID 045e:0737 Microsoft Corp. Compact Optical Mouse 500
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Can anybody help me please?

Thanks and best regards.

  • No, with Mouse this is the result from xinput: orlando_olguin|ooo-laptop|~ $ xinput ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ DLL06F2:00 06CB:75DA Touchpad id=10 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard – Orlando Olguín Olvera Jun 19 '17 at 17:13

Did you turn off mouse acceleration by adding a file to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/, like in this thread: How to disable mouse acceleration in Ubuntu 16.04 ?

This file could be called 90-mouse-accel-disable.conf, 50-mouse-acceleration.conf or something like that.

If yes, then you have to change value -1 in line Option "AccelerationProfile" "-1" to 0. Apparently there were some changes in the underlying code in 17.04.

Mine 50-mouse-acceleration.conf looks like this:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "My Mouse"
    MatchIsPointer "yes"
    Option "AccelerationProfile" "0"
    Option "AccelerationScheme" "none"
    Option "AccelProfile" "flat"

  • Hi, nope, I didn't disable the acceleration, in fact, I like it. – Orlando Olguín Olvera Jun 22 '17 at 14:42
