    I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for this. Thanks to those USB fixes you mentioned, my mouse works for the first time since Linux 2.6! Now I’m not stuck on Debian Squeeze! Hooray!

    Just a note:

    This also installs/updates loads of other packages, not all of which are stable. In my case it broke my nfs setup and trying to revert via ‘sudo ppa-purge ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa’ broke my installation.
