Hardware : compaq presario 915us laptop, Logitech standard wheel optical mouse
Software: Mandrake 9.2 with 2.6.0 kernel, KDE 3.1.x, XFree86-4
When I log in and the desktop appears, my optical mouse is off, dead. When I run mousedrake, and just click on ok (my previous and correct selection is remembered between reboots), the mouse comes to life and works fine.
Until I reboot.
I reboot, log in and the mouse is dead, run mousedrake, and blip it turns on and comes to life. Reboot, rinse and repeat.
Why do I always have to keep going to mousedrake to get USB turned on and the mouse activated? Is there not automatic way to do this? I've tried having the bios set to 'legacy usb support' so that the usb is always on and the mouse is always lit, but even then the mouse will not control the pointer until I run mousedrake and just click on 'ok'. But in that case, the scroll wheel won't work. The scroll wheel only works when bios legacy usb support is disabled.
I wrote a previous post titled "Mandrake 9.2 won't remember usb mouse settings?" but I can't seem to find it. It hasn't shown up in the forum topic list, so I'm trying again. Thanks for the patience!
