My mouse does not work in LMDE, why?

Postby xeekei » Fri Aug 19, 2011 8:58 am

Hi, I just downloaded Linux Mint Xfce 201108 64-bit, and I quickly found out that my mouse doesn’t work, neither in Live nor as a true install.
I have a Roccat Kone[+]
Is there some quick fix for this, or what am I supposed to do? :(

Thanks in advance!

If you need it during live install, borrow a generic USB mouse from somebody. After install, you need to manually do some stuff to get the mouse working: http://roccat.sourceforge.net/koneplus.html.

Or you can buy a different mouse. Almost all "normal" USB mice work without having to do anything in Linux.

Thanks! But I gave up and installed Xubuntu 11.04 instead, I'll try Mint again sometime. Thanks again.
