Mouse not working (workaround)

Post by jancyclops » Sun Mar 06, 2016 19:51

After the last upgrade, I now find if I switch on my PC and just leave it to get going, by the time I get to the logon screen the mouse isn't working. For some reason, if I choose the advanced options in GRUB and then just accept the default system (i.e., not the "recovery mode"), which I thought should give the same results as just leaving the machine to get going, the mouse works.

I am not a Linux expert by any means, so I have no idea why this happens. I wish I didn't have to do this but at least this way I can get the system fully functioning. If it weren't for the fact that other distros have problems letting me use my two GPUS, I would have stopped using Sabayon by now.
