[SOLVED] Mouse problems
I have tried on Linux Mint and Ubuntu. Everything seems to be working ok apart from my mouse. The issue is that it seems to work only inside the current/last opened window and even then not everything works. (ie. can't maximise/close window; outside of the current window mouse doesn't seem to register any clicks/right clicks at all).
Keyboard seems to function properly. I read around that this may be related to running 2 mice etc, but I have only one.
I use my PC (no touch-pad) with R.A.T. 7 Contagion gaming mouse (USB). The only thing that comes to my mind, what could possibly be at fault, is the keyboard I'm using is part of a set keyboard + mouse. I think it's called Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 2000 (on the keyboard itself it says Wireless Keyboard 2000. I don't use the mouse that came with it. I didn't have any problems in Windows.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
