    Question USB Mouse

    I have just installed OpenSuSE 11.4 to my second HD , it boots fine(dual boots w/ Windoze 7) but when I get to the desktop my mouse does not work. I tried my Lenvo corded mouse and my logitech wireless mouse to no avail. Any help is greatly Appreciated. I am running 64 bit Suse on a lenovo desktop k235.

    Then run dmesg in a terminal after you connect the mouse and see the output.

    There's also an useful thread here:

    does the touchpad work to control the mouse?

    if so, open YaST and go Hardware > Hardware Information > Mouse and see
    if your mice are correctly identified by the system.

    1. did you do this http://tinyurl.com/2ebcf27 before install? if not, do
    it now it could easily be that you have a corrupted install disk, and
    therefore a damaged install--which is another way of saying: what you
    have there is NOT usual at all, in fact it is very unusual, which is
    partly why i suggest the following:

    2. is your keyboard USB? if so try another, and if possible try a
    keyboard with a PS1 connector

    3. are both mice USB? do you have an old one with the old connector you
    can try?

    NOTE: while it is ok with USB, you should never plug in or unplug the
    older styled connectors for the keyboard or mouse..

    and, what was the result of you trip to
    http://old-en.opensuse.org/Logitech-MX400

    and, tell us more about your hardware--perhaps your motherboard or bios
    is _not_ compatible with Linux.....did the box have an Penguin icon next
    to the flying broken window and say something like linux ready, maybe?
    is your system listed as good to go on the hardware compatibility list
    http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Hardware ?

    i read "I have just installed OpenSuSE" to mean neither keyboard nor
    mouse every worked correctly, is that correct? even when you tried it
    out by running an openSUSE Live CD prior to installing?

    have you ever run Linux on this computer?

    It's so unusual that two different mouses won't work, that first I'd check for a general usb issue. If you plug in a pendrive or another usb device, does it show correctly - i.e., do you get a notification?
