Ubuntu should recognize your mouse with out any problem. I have never had any problems with my USB mice. What mouse is it?

These forums are not the best place to look for Linux support. Something like the Ubuntu forums http://ubuntuforums.org/ are a better bet.

Enter

Code: Select all

dmesg|grep input

or

Code: Select all

dmesg|grep -i usb

in a console and look if your mouse shows up and post corresponding lines here.

I can't think of anything specific, so maybe that will help narrow in on the problem.

Edit:
Also post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

It would probably be best if you use some kind of pastebin ; )

There's a reason Ubuntu, being a consumer distribution, obfuscates access to the root account :P

Back when I ran Fedora I once wiped out most of /usr/ with an ill advised rm as root. The operating system. was still some what functional but a reinstall was needed. Fortunately this was before I was only playing around with Linux and not using it as my main OS the way I do now.
