As the title says, I have a usb keyboard and mouse (logitech g510 kb / g500 mouse), that have always worked perfectly fine. I swapped motherboards recently, and everything still works great - except the mouse. It's "detected", but the cursor doesn't move. Now for some reason, if I walk over, un-plug it, and re-plug it back in, it works fine as before. :?:

I can continue walking around every time I startx, but feel like this should be fixable? Any quick thoughts or shall I start sharing dmesg & /proc/config.gz etc .. I'm pretty sure I had all the usb/hid kernel config bits sorted out long ago .. I've re-emerged evdev but no dice :?:

TIA

That's annoying...

Curious, do you have USB drivers as modules or statically compiled into the kernel? UHCI/OHCI? EHCI? XHCI?

I have to do that with my mouse if I give it a static jolt... if I accumulate enough static charge and touch my mouse, the mouse goes dead and I have to disconnect and reconnect for it to start working again.

all of those are statically compiled in .. again, pretty sure my config has been good for a long time

well, the other day re-plugging it in did not work. I tried plugging it in the usb 3 controller and it worked. And now it works on boot and I don't have to replug it in. So i'm beginning to suspect a faulty usb2 hub on the board, but i doubt I'll RMA it for that. So I guess this is solved for now, unless someone has some other thoughts. I figured maybe someone out there had this same problem, as I searched and found a few similar threads but not quite exactly this..

summary: mouse plugged into usb 2 port does not work, have to replug in. Sometimes even replugging it does not work. Plugged in to usb 3 port and works perfect. :?:

Under windows7 mice is work fine, but in gentoo i need to replug it to another usb port to work.

After replugging the mouse, is there any change in lsmod output?

This happens to me, too -- on the laptop (both on AC and on Battery).

In the process of building various stage4 from the Gentoo profiles list, I've
noticed that it..

Happens: x86 Xorg, no-multilib Xorg, hardened no-multilib Xorg

Doesn't Happen : x86 no-Xorg (gpm), x86 Xorg, multi-lib no-Xorg, multi-lib Xorg,
hardened multi-lib no-Xorg, hardened multi-lib Xorg

(I have a USB 8-Button Xornet Gaming Mouse with Zoom, running off 'PS/2 mouse
common to all mice')

Note that the Synaptics Touchpad works under all conditions, and doesn't need a
re-plug (How? would I do that?) to function correctly -- this is using just evdev,
and PS/2 mouse common to all mice to handle the Synaptics, it seems.

This was a hub problem. Now I dont use any hubs.
