I became aware recently that i was not longer in a Gnome-Wayland session. After logging out i found the mouse cursor works as normal in GDM , but no longer the buttons ?
The mouse buttons work perfectly on Gnome desktop. This must have happened sometime in January, but i'm having difficulty tracing the cause of the problem :(
Has anybody encountered this problem before or has some suggestions ?

Many thanks in advance

I've tied down the problem to Wayland.
Changing default XSession to gnome-wayland allowed me in to a wayland desktop session, but it was buggy and the mouse buttons also didn't work.
Changing GDM custom conf to WaylandEnable=false resulted in the mouse buttons working at GDM login.
I had a functioning wayland setup beforehand , so the question remains what caused this to change ?
