I have tried to use my mouse (perixx mx-2000) on Fedora 18 and Crunchbang 11, and for both of them, the mouse does not work.
The "funny" thing is that the mouse seems to be detected as a keyboard:
$ xinput Holtek USB Gaming Mouse id=15 [slave keyboard (3)]
I would like to know if there is a way to correct that kind of bug. If there is not, does can an adapter usb/mouse do the trick?
