I got it figured out. In my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file under Serverlayout section,
InputDevice "Mouse" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "Mouse" "CorePointer"
I can now move windows about just fine.
I Appreciate your help. The reason for this was that I have a synaptics mouse
on my laptop, but not on my second laptop, but I directly copied my xorg.conf
file... just disabling the synaptics driver, but I never corrected the above.
