I have recently reinstalled Mint 10 Julia Gnome on my PC as the only operating system on the system. My PC is an aging Pentium 4. It worked well for a year or more using Mint Julia. Gnome version.
It the old barrel PS2 mouse and keyboard outputs. It also has several USBs. I used wired keyboard and mouse in the USB sockets. Then I used a wireless Logitech MK320 Keyboard and mouse. Still worked well. Then Used a Microsoft Wireless keyboard and mouse. This is when the error started. It all worked well till about a minute after I logged in, The the mouse buttons stopped working on anything.
I reinstalled Mint Julia and now it happens frequently and intermittently on all mice and keyboards I attach. These include:
1. Logitech MK320
2. PS2 Keyboard and usb mouse.
3. PS2 wireless keyboard and mouse (MN: Y-RC14) plugged into the ps2 sockets.
All sometimes work and sometimes don't. Today I am using the old PS2 Keyboard and usb mouse (yesterday they did not work. Yesterday I used the Logitech MK320. I I've tried them in alone or in combination.
The problem only occurs after I have logged in. I don't recall it happening when I used Mint from a DVD.
I'm not sure what to do next. I plan to use Mint as my main computer but still use Windows. It looks really good on my new big screen. I'm just a bit confused.
Hope you can come up with some ideas.
