Thread: Mouse randomly stops working in KDE

  1. #1

    Default Mouse randomly stops working in KDE

    Hi.

    I have a lenovo Y560 with open suse 11.4 installed on it.
    The mouse stops working completely randomly.
    The pointer still moves but does not click anywhere or doesn't even highlight the object under it.
    The only place where it clicks and highlights is the task bar where it works normally.
    The only option that I have now is to log off and log in again every time this happens.

    Is there any way to find out what's happening and how do I stop it from happening...

    Thanks in advance...

    wish i knew....i had something similar last week...i thought i was gonna
    have to install a test users to see if my /home had caught a bug....but,
    it was late and i just shutdown...and, the next morning all was
    well...and, so it has been for four or five days..

    strange.

    so, _try_ shutting down over night (not hibernate, not sleep...shut
    down, power off)

    oh, i booted to Lose7 to see if i could find something about the problem
    in the forum, and then booted to openSUSE...so, maybe Redmond fixed it
    for me (right!)..
