Hi new user here and final made the best switch to linux.
I had linux lite 3.8 and I had brought a Corsair Gaming Harpoon RGB Mouse as my mouse wheel had broken on my older mouse and when I had upgraded to Linux Lite 4.6 (yes i know i waited a while to upgrade)  my mouse had stopped working it is not responsive there is still power going to it as it does light up but the sensor isn't working on it. I have tried different USB ports still not working, I have even tried few of my friends PC and it works fine on theirs and had previous worked on Linux Lite 3.8 but as soon as i upgraded it had stopped working it was even working on the live version of 4.6 but when I installed 4.6 it had stopped working and yes i have enabled it on the mouse and touchpad settings still not working.
I have had to go back to my previous mouse so scrolling it a world of pain for me right now. If anyone has any ideas of a solution to this I am willing to try anything.
Just try and give me noob friendly advice as I'm still pretty new to using the terminal and such. Any help would be great seem like a weird issue to have. If any further information is needed I can provide it just may needed to be pointed in the right direction as I'm still fairly new to this system. Thank you very much and looking forward to your answers and suggestions.

Seems a few people have issue with this mouse...Seems Disabling the joystik from controlling the mouse helps a few (mentionned for Manjaro Linus but worth a try) :

There is also a project for a driver of Corsair devices which could be another thing to look at :

Hope this helps!
