    Default usb mouse freeze

    I'm pretty convinced that my recently installed Logitech lx3 usb mouse is freezing periodically. At first thought it was an entire system freeze but noticed disk activity last time, and recalled a forum post of a long time ago that I cannot locate now where someone replaced the usb mouse with the standard ps/2 version and was good to go afterwards.

    I'm using an old ps/2 mouse now and have not had a hangup yet.

    Do I have a defective mouse or is this a known problem with usb mice ?

    No known issues that I know of.

    Yes, in that phase now (different mouse - 'old' ps/2).

    Will do this for a week or two then report... and if no known issues exist then I must have a defective mouse.

    Just realized that I have an identical mouse on another pc... so swapped them. This system exhibited the lock up right away... so not a defective mouse.

    Am I missing something here with the usb mouse support ? The old ps/2 model is working fine.

    I will say that since my last post I have been experimenting with Yast, trying to find the right model for Logitech. I have a LX3, but it isn't listed, so am hoping there is an equivalent.

    Thank you for your assistance...

    This is a clone.

    A few weeks ago I swapped out the old ps/2 mouse for this one, never really paid much attention to having done so and started noticing the pointer lockups but never attributed it to the mouse swap. I had the ps/2-to-usb adapter in place so never felt that any sort of configuration was required since it worked right away.

    Thanks for the reference... but my center wheel does work, as do left and right buttons.

    I think mis-configuration is the right direction to pursue...just made three attempts to boot and finally plugged the ps/2 mouse back in.

    Funny how that is working so reliably.

    Also perhaps relevant: the LED beneath the mouse is not on - and the LSUSB command hangs. Cannot even ctl-c. Here's the output of hwinfo --mouse

    I had a usb mouse freeze using an AMD Athlon. The problem appeared if I was using the mouse when the system turned on/off a cooling fan. The system would just lose any response from the mouse. I didn't want to fool with thermal control settings, so I went with a ps/2 converter and have not had any freezes in half a year.
