Thanks for your help. I did what you suggested. A
dialog box popped up to choose the mouse type. The
right one was highlighted so I just pressed pf12 to
move to the next screen. The dialog box went away.
Two lines of diagnostics are showing on the console:
Shutting down console mouse services: ok
Starting console mouse services: ok
What should I do now?
