USB Mouse and Touchpad


Hi Guys. I have a compaq presario 2100 running slackware 9.1, I recently upgrade my mouse to optical USB, but when I disconnect the USB mouse, my touchpad doesnt works me. I dont know what could be the problem, or what protocol should I need to use for run both of them simultaneously.?

Thanks for your help...

Try changing the Option "Device" to /dev/input/mice.

I tried with

Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"

and it works only the USB and when I change to

Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

Just works the Touchapad.

What protocol could works with both?

Thanks again...
