I installed elementary OS some time ago and I must say I really like the 'flow' of it. Although I have unfortunately some technical issues. One of them is the mouse.

My Problem: When I start the PC the mousewheel does not work. I have to unplug it and reinsert it. Then everything works fine.

The mouxe is the X7 Spider. lsusb after reinserting it:

Bus 005 Device 004: ID 09da:9090 A4Tech Co., Ltd. XL-730K / XL-750BK / XL-755BK Mice

dmesg | grep mouse

[    1.229382] mousedev: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice

So far I have no idea what else I could post to analyze this issue further.

You have any hints for me to look at this issue besides unplugging it or how to solve it?
