USB mouse with linux

3 posts in this topic

YO YO fellas, im having one helluva time configuring slackware to make sweet sweet love to my USB mouse. The very same mouse works in every other distro ive used, so i know the problem must be between me and slack...

what im asking is for anyone with a LAPTOP with a USB MOUSE preferably running slack (but any distro will do in a pinch) to post their XF86Config file so i can see how the different mice are set up and what to do in the corepointer section. Ive hosed countless config files trying to follow all the zillion wrong tuts out there, so i just want to see one that works.

thanks homeboiz (no homegrrlz yet stank, but im still workin' it :) )

EDIT: im using this post as a notepad cause im a lazy fukk

# mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mount/cdrom

not on a laptop, but usb is usb, right?

    Identifier  "Mouse1"    Driver      "mouse"    Option "Protocol"    "ExplorerPS/2"    Option "Device"      "/dev/input/mice"    Option "Buttons"    "5"    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

edit: i reread your post and...corepointer section? you mean this?

InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"

thats the only thing related to corepointer i have in my XF86Config file

the device option isn't set right for slack, in slack there is no /dev/input directory, you can have:

/dev/mouse

or

/dev/psaux

but then again its usb, so i don't know....

you might wanna try something like:

/dev/usb/(insert_device_here)
