    OK, my first time with Linux has been, well, interesting.

    I reinstalled and then changed the graphics settings. That worked. But when I went into KDE the mouse didn't work.

    I'm reinstalling AGAIN and I'm going to test everything I possibly can. If it doesn't work then, I'm going to give up until someone in my office can help me on monday.

    Thanks again for your help. Any words of wisdom would be welcome.

    USB Mouse?

    If so do an lsusb in the console and let me see the results.

    It was PS/2. I then tried USB. Now using the USB for this reinstall.

    Still no mouse. I tried lsusb and it says "command not found".

    su to root, enter your root password, and try it again.

    Gee whiz! I start a session in root and then nothing works.

    If I log in as myself and then go to the console. how do I switch to root from there? Can I? Because logging in as root kills everything.

    Something really strange is going on on your system... ;p

    Anywhoo, while logged in as yourself, type:


    It will ask you for the root password, and if you enter it correctly you will have root priviledges.

    Whew. OK, finally.

    Well, it recognizes the mouse. It says:
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 045e:0039 Microsoft Corp. IntelliMouse Optical

    That's correct
