Default mouse behavior erratic after upgrade to 12.04 and updates applied

Strange, I'm on a standard homebuilt desktop/server computer, and after
not using the mouse for a few minutes, I have to click the buttons like
mad to get it working again. Just moving the mouse has no effect, I must
click the mouse buttons several times before the mouse cursor moves
again. It's like it went to sleep on me and I have the energy stuff
turned off. Strange.


After the upgrade the mouse worked fine. The first night when I applied
all of the updates, is when it occurred. It's a fairly new two
button/scroll wheel USB mouse. Anyone else experiencing this before I
start the witch hunt?? Thanx, Ric

Are you using KDE by any chance? There have been reports that the latest
KDE suffers from erratic mouse behaviour.

KDE suffers from erratic mouse behaviour.


And by "..the latest KDE..." you mean.....?

I am using KDE 4.8.3 (Release 501) without any problems of any kind.

Are you referring to some newer version which I am not yet aware of?

And I have been using Logitech wireless/optical USB keyboards and mices
for some 6+ years now.

By saying "scroll wheel USB mouse" can I assume that it a wireless
mouse? If not a wireless mouse then ignore following :-) . Otherwise
consider these:


* is the receiving unit under or behind a monitor? I had a similar
problem when the unit got pushed under and behind the (LCD) monitor. The
monitor's electrics interfered with the signal;


* is the battery in the mouse fully charged? (I use rechargeable
batteries which is why I ask the question.) A few days ago the mouse
stopped working - period. The keyboard was OK and was responsive, the
system was still running but the mouse was 'deaded'. With the speed of
Superman circling the earth looking for Lois Lane I deduced that the
problem may lie in the battery - and this turned out to be correct :-) '


* not really applicable to your situation, but not that long ago the
mouse became lethargic: it would move at a snail's pace and I had to
move it several inches just to move it an inch across the screen. Not
normal and not nice :-) . I don't really know why I did this, but what I
did was to blow into the 'ole wot the laser uses to detect movement;
just a single, quick blow job - and the mice started to work at its
normal well behaved way.

All I'm saying is there were several reports on the Fedora mailing list
of odd behaviour with mice & the common underlying factor was KDE after
an upgrade.

If OP was using KDE, it may of been of some use in helping him debug it.

Phil...

I understand.

Except that Ric has this phobia about using KDE and so does not have it
installed as his other posts in today's (and previous) posts show :-) .


(Ric's only fully reliable system which he uses is his chicken foot
which he indiscriminately waves about - whenever he is awake that is :-D .


Actually....I am only assuming this...Maybe he even does it while
asleep....hmmm..)

Get a live CD from some other distro and test the mouse with that. If
it is hardware then you will likely see the same problem. Try
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/downloads.html
It is a quick download and fast starting system with almost no bells
and whistles. It is really a cool system if you like minimalist stuff.

Are you using KDE by any chance? There have been reports that the latest
KDE suffers from erratic mouse behaviour.
Nope, a straight up Ubuntu 12.04 install that I added xfve desktop to.
So, I can do Ubuntu or XFCE. The mouse is going nuts in both. Darn
annoying thing going on. In the kernal log I'm getting a bunch of this:

WARNING: gnome-keyring:: C_Initialize called twice for same process
WARNING: gnome-keyring:: C_Initialize called twice for same process
WARNING: gnome-keyring:: C_Initialize called twice for same process
WARNING: gnome-keyring:: C_Initialize called twice for same process

Then I see that there is a pm-powersave.log which is rather long and
full of activity. I'd like to kill that entire process, as I'm running a
mid-tower that is on 24/7. I don't need to waste CPU cycles on such
nonsense. How to drag it out, like a screaming Mandrake Root, to gut it
completely out? I suspect something is trying to powersave my mouse's
USB port. Ric

By saying "scroll wheel USB mouse" can I assume that it a wireless
mouse?


Nope, I don't run wireless anything, I like it wired. Less problems. Ric
