lsusb with more debugging turned on to see what specifically the Linux system knows about the mouse.
$ lsusb -vv
Also take a look at the
dmesg log to see if the mouse was detected correctly and if a driver and/or kernel module was assigned to it during start.
For example in my
dmesg log for my mouse:
$ grep -i mouse /var/log/dmesg
[ 1.668480] mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
[ 2.637695] generic-usb 0003:046D:C521.0001: input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Mouse [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.1/input0
I can see it was detected and assigned to
Another tool that has helped is
hwinfo --mouse. Fr example:
$ # hwinfo --mouse
