I just received my USB type c to regular USB converter today. I plugged in a wireless mouse in Android, it works fine. However, when I boot into Linux, the mouse no longer works no matter what I do.

Is there something I'm missing or is the Linux currently is at such a broken state? I know that the Linux currently lack drivers. I can't even read correct hardware information from Linux.

My little USB wired mouse worked fine in linux (gemian), on my Gemini.....on right side port.

Probably something missing from this initial linux for Cosmo....

But that still seems to be a bug as the cursor shows up just fine on Android when using the right side port.

In android Usb on the right side works only if cover display is enabled.. If you connect a usb mass storage on the right side it will work only if cover display is enabled.

That is weird. Do you know why does the USB port has to tie together with the CoDi?

This seems to be the case with charging too. The Cosmo won't charge without CoDi disabled in the right port, and under Debian it'll only charge via the left port. Really weird but I suppose the two are wired together somehow.

Gees... CoDi is such a troublemaker. I was able to charger on the right port with CoDi on, but it was inconsistent. I left it charging on the right port last night, but this morning I found out it stopped charging somewhere during midnight.

Thanks for the hint. I have a wireless mouse from LogiLink (http://www.logilink.com/media/datasheets/ID0160.pdf) which works fine when plugged into the left USB-C port

DId u get your mouse working? I was succesfull with an old cable mouse via an "unofficial" usb Hub (Lycander). But it allways took a while since it was recognized...

Good luck!
