    What mouse do you have? Is it a USB one or a PS/2 port one?

    Which company's mouse you are using? Also how do you connect - USB or PS/2 port?
    Almost all well-known companies like Logitech, Microsoft, SamSung, etc., are very well
    supported.

    when on live cd,get a terminal.then edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to include a "autops2" option in the line matching:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "mouse"
            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
            [U]Option          "Protocol"              "ExplorerPS/2"[/U]
            Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
            Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
    EndSection
    on underlined line end replace with autops2 and try reloading X server by pressing CTRL+ALT+Backspace.

    open the run box by pressing [alt]+[f2] and type the following exactly,
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    this will open a configuration file in a text editor. In UNIX-like operating systems configurations are modified by editing text files, so were going to edit a file now. In that file, locate this section,
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
    ...
    EndSection
    
    In the Option "Protocol" line mark the following changes and then save and close that file. Then press [ctrl]+[alt]+[bkspace] to restart xdm and the xserver.

    First try this one,
    Code:
    Option          "Protocol"              "Auto"
    it must work, if it doesn't work, perform the procedures above and try the subsequent ones.
    Code:
    Option          "Protocol"              "Microsoft"
    or
    Code:
    Option          "Protocol"              "Logitech"

    @Ishan, Open the Terminal Window & type:

    $ sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg_back.conf

    $ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Make the changes like @Prakash & @Satissh has said. Save the file.

    Now, run the following command:

    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    I face the same problem in kubuntu...I have an iBall mouse..

    But the bigger problem is that my keyboard too is not detected in kubuntu

    I tried kubuntu 6.10...but both my mice and keyboard are working in ubuntu 6.06...

    What should I do?
