Kensington Orbit Wireless Trackball was not being recognized by Elementary.

ANSWER: It's now working fine. The problem (I think) was that not all the drivers had been installed for my Nvidia dual-monitor setup. The presence of that 2nd monitor was doing something to the USB mouse driver. Turning off the monitor and temporarily using a wired mouse allowed me to get through to all the Nvidia driver Updates.


  • Perhaps. A bit more detail will be needed first. Could you edit your question to include the output of this terminal command: sudo lsusb. This will list all USB devices and their IDs, making it easier to find a compatible driver 👍🏻
