Slack 10.1 -- Mouse issue / X11 issue (Resolved)
alright, so I can't get the mouse to work in kde....
Not cool -- so I changed it from /dev/mouse to /dev/psaux...
Then I changed the gpm(?) to use /dev/psaux instead of /dev/mouse and the mouse worked in bash....
so then I went into my .xinitrc and took out startkde....
NOW i'm getting an x error
This next error was at the very bottom, but I bet it was a direct result of the top one eh?
What type of mouse do you have, and where is it located?
From a terminal issue
$ dmesg | grep -i mouse
and post the output.
And since it doesn't work in KDE, and you've got that in a mess,
perhaps you can boot and run
and choose Fluxbox. That will help eliminate the KDE problems
until you get your mouse working. Also, you shouldn't change
gdm ... if you can, change it back.
ok, so I got a response from cat on both /dev/mouse AND /dev/psaux -- X -configure decided on mouse, and when I changed it to psaux it worked in gnome....
Still doesn't work in kde -- go figure
dmesg | grep -i mouse produced nothing ( good I suppose )
Got any ideas for the kde junk?
/me slaps forehead
wireless mouse batteries slow
lol, my bad, i feel like an idiot
it was a pebkac error this whole time :(
