Mouse inactive after install (LM5) solved

Postby dodoecchi » Tue Jun 10, 2008 1:17 pm

Hello
I installed linux mint 5, but when I boot on it, my usb mouse stops working! There is no light anymore... it's like dead.
I tried all my usb ports... nothing. And it worked fine on the live cd!
Maybe there is something to setup in the control panel? But I don't know how to open the start menu. What is the equivalent of the windows key?

I use this line to boot with my grub
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda10 ro vga=normal
but I doubt that can help

I'm surprised it boots at all - that's entirely the wrong line for menu.lst
It should be

Code: Select all

title      Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
root      (hd0,9)
kernel      /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=/dev/sda10 ro quiet splash
initrd      /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-16-generic

If you need some setting to get resolution pre X this table helps you
Screen 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024 1600x1200
Colors --------------------------- -------------------------------------------
256 | 769 771 773 775 796
32,768 | 784 787 790 793 797
65,536 | 785 788 791 794 798
16.8M | 786 789 792 795 799

so vga=794 might be what you want

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
