I installed Linux backbox 4.5.1 ,
(for beginners )
I was surprised when i reboot my system , I found that the mouse does not work , and does not move on my laptop.
I can only use keyboard, so to resolve this Problem , use only keyboard.
Open terminal : ctrl+alt+t

1 : sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all
2 : sudo apt-get --purge autoremove xserver-xorg-input-all && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

Reboot backbox , you need to be root
Rebooting : reboot

Hi,

I just edited your post because you need to make easy read for people and respect some basic letter case rules (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_case). It's very nice from you to share, but pls make your post more user friendly.

Share if you care :).

Cheers!

 In most cases, when a mouse and/or keyboard become unresponsive, one of two things are to blame: (1) The batteries in the actual mouse and/or keyboard are dead (or are dying) and need to be replaced; or (2) the drivers for either or both devices need to be updated.
