Good day Stefano,

Just reporting back because you responded to my mail,

I have a microsoft and logitech mouses. No difference to the problem.
Downloaded ubuntu-12.10-beta-desktop-64.iso.
Sorry to say just as bad - on my PC- as the other downloads.
With or without internet connection no mouse so no go when reach unity.
Funny it seems that the cursor is there but invisible - if I move around 
the mouse some changes happen to the stuff on the desktop but does not 
So now I have 5 dvd's here that is "useless for my system".
Maybe I have a hardware problem.
I have installed and run - suse 12.2 - fedora 17- debian from 6 to the  
latest - ubuntu 12.10 - with no problem.
Thanks for your interest,
