USB mouse stops working till reboot

Post by jazzldazzl »

Dear All,

I´m on Wtware 5.8.72, and have always faced this issue:

I have a logitech keyboard and mouse set connected with a USB dongle, and sometimes - it can take hours - it just stops working. I see no pattern in when it´s happening, and the only cure is to reboot the raspberry. The keyboard continues to work while this is happening.

Any advise?

Thanks in advance!

Wired mouse.
Also, google the same issue for Raspbian. Perhaps, google will tell some magic for kernel command line to write into cmdline.txt

Thank you both!

I´ll try adding the suggested text, as well as maybe swapping the set for a different model.

Ouch, there was a post here by somebody telling which cmdline.txt command that works great for this, but it´s been removed :( Any idea what that was? Didn´t have time to test it yet...

Human factor. I've deleted Overmind account by mistake and I can not restore it. Very sad :(

Perhaps, solution was:
One more workaround: add "usbhid.mousepoll=0" before word "quiet" info cmdline.txt on boot SD.

Ouch yes, that sucks :(

I already have added usbhid command in cmdline.txt, but not quiet.
Should it look like this:

usbhid.mousepoll=0 quiet

or like this:

usbhid.mousepoll=0
quiet

Thanks in advance!

First is ok. Second is NOT ok. cmdline.txt is single line.

Thank you, but that resulted in that after 5 mins I could only move the mouse pointer in the upper left 5 % of the screen..

Thanks all. I´ve now swapped the keyboard and mouse with a different Logitech model, and this seems to have resolved my problems!
