Okay here's the lowdown: I try Linux out and I think it kicks ass. But I can't use my little scrolli-bobber middle mouse button that I have become so attached to. So I try to just select some random 3-button mouse config from 'kontrol-panel' in KDE and reboot (stupid, STUPID move).
Now I can't use a mouse in KDE which leaves me basically crippled (unless I just want to practice UNIX stuff). Anyone have an idea of what I should do to get my mouse back?
