Hello guys, im new here, i just downloaded and installed the peppermint 6 on my acer aspire d250, while in
the setup, the mouse didnt work i thougth that was wierd by continued installing with the keyboard since maybe it just needed something else
after installing the mousepad still isnt working, read on the forum that you should update, did the update rebooted and still mouse not working
i did a sudo apt-get update and upgrade , rebooted and still the mouse is not working

xinput --list:

Virtual code pointer                           id=2  [master pointer (2)]
  - virtual core XTEST pointer            id=4  [slave pointer (2)]
  - SynPS/2 Synaptics touchpad       id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
 - Microsoft Microsoft 3-button mouse with intelliEye(tm)   id=13  [slave pointer (2)]

The title of this topic says "Mousepad", but the body says, "Mouse" .. is this a mouse issue, or a touchpad issue ?

If it's a mouse issue, does the mouse spring to life if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r psmouse
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
or
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r psmouse
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe psmouse proto=exps
If not, is this a wireless or USB mouse ?
