I just installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my Lenovo Thinkpad P50s. Very quickly my mouse clicks stopped working. I can still click on the application launcher, but nowhere else. I’m totally new to Linux, so I have no idea how to start trying to fix this.
Update: Now my red dot isn’t working, and I can only move the move the mouse with the touchpad.
unity --replace & solution and it did not work
I plugged in a wired mouse that works
When I do
cat /proc/bus/input/devices/ the touchpad is not listed at all.
I might add that the touchpad and trackpoint worked fine during the installation process.
Could this be a hardware issue? I didn't think so at first because the computer has just been sitting here on my couch the whole time.
Update 3: Booted from the USB again and chose to try Ubuntu without installing and the mouse and touchpad work perfectly.
Going to try my luck reinstalling Ubuntu now
