[Bug 1386930] Re: mouse unresponsive to clicks after changing users


Charles, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xorg 1386930

Please ensure you have xdiagnose installed, and that you click the Yes
button for attaching additional debugging information.

As well, given the information from the prior release is already
available, testing a release prior to the development one would not be

Thank you for your understanding.

  mouse unresponsive to clicks after changing users

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using Ubuntu 14.04 with a PS2 mouse.  After logging in to regular
  user, then logging in to admin, logging back out and logging back in
  to regular user again the top and side menus are unresponsive to mouse
  clicks.  That is, the left menu bar programs do not respond to mouse
  left clicks (not sure if right mouse clicks do anything to these
  menus), including the Ubuntu search center, as well as the top right
  User options.

  Mouse clicks work on inside applications, such as Firefox, meaning,
  Firefox must have been previously open before switching to admin and
  back because otherwise the mouse can't be used to open Firefox!
  Programs can be opened from Software center by pressing Alt-F2, typing
  the name and then pressing Enter at the exact match.  Clicking the
  mouse on the search results is unresponsive.

  This bug doesn't appear when switching between two regular users, only
  between initial regular user and admin and back again.
