On this new install of linux mint, my mouse and keyboard worked fine at first. Then I ran all the updates. Now there seems to be input lag. When I type I can't go fast because the input misses 1 out of 6 keystrokes. And the mouse is slow and stuttery. My cpu is not being overused. I checked in HTOP. I'm a super newb when it comes to linux. Any help is appreciated.
It fixed the next time I started the pc.
Post-install upgrades usually require reboots. Also be prepared to need to reboot next time you run a system upgrade (`sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade`). You can also enable auto-update to check for updates & install them every so often.
