On the page you provided a link to (for the iso that has working ethernet) it says:

"I have tested on Lubuntu host and mouse worked only if i disabled mouse integration."

I'm on Slackware and I haven't seen the option to disable mouse support ; I'm still downloading the updated ISO image.

I have a trackpad that attaches via serial port and am planning on trying that but haven't yet attached or tested it.

So far I have been running apps by moving between them (and through them once I start them) with the Tab and shift-Tab keys. Escape will release you from some apps but not all.
