Ive been using mint for about 2 weeks now and I had a day off yesterday so I figured I would give the system a make over and a tune up. I updated the system and also installed a few apps including: wine (havent used it at all yet), compiz fusion, another compiz app, and cairo doc. The compiz never worked, or whats probably the more likely scenario I dont know how to use it, and the cairo doc was all screwy with my dual monitor setup on my laptop. This is just the history of what happened before I experienced my actual problem. When I went to login this morning mint will not recognize my mouse. I boot up the OS and the mouse just sits in the center of the scrreen and doesnt move. I log out and log back in, same problem. Just to check that it wasnt the mouse pad itself I logged into windows and the mouse is working fine. Can any one take mercy on a poor newb and try and help me fix this. I would appreciate it very much.
