Trying to start the X Window system using the command "startx" generates the following error (on Debian AMD64, fresh install):
Fatal server error:
no screens found
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
I've tried running the command "X -configure" which gives the following information:
Xorg is not able to detect your mouse.
Edit the file and correct the Device.
Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new
To test the server, run 'X -config /root/xorg.conf.new'
The mouse is a USB mouse plugged into the PS2 port using one of those USB>PS2 adapters.
When I run the command X -config /root/xorg.conf.new
the screen goes blank and the monitor stops receiving input. The only way of getting out of this is by doing a hard reset.
Here is the mouse config information from my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Anyone got any idea what's going on here?
