[SOLVED] Fresh Mint 14 KDE install, mouse not working.

Postby tnimxunil on Wed Jan 16, 2013 11:41 pm

Hi everyone,

The title says it all really. It's a Lenovo Z570. The mouse pointer is not appearing, and L/R clicks don't get a response.
Worked fine on Mint 13 KDE, and works in the 14 live cd.

I've been fumbling my way around with keyboard shortcuts, however I don't seem to be able to close the Mint Welcome
screen, which stays on top. Between that and the lack of ctrl-alt-fX (is that a new feature?!) my already limited
troubleshooting abilities are pretty worthless.

Anyone able to suggest a solution?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Is this a touch pad or wired/wireless usb mouse?

Touch pad.

* EDIT *

Never mind, reinstalled (God bless seperate home partitions), and it now recognises my touchpad (and lets me change tty - glad to see that was my busted install and not a new mint feature!)
