HP wireless k/b and mouse set- mouse problem


Hi,

I've just purchased an HP Pavilion t360a PC and it comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse set. There is one receiver for both the keyboard and mouse, and this has a USB connection.

These devices work fine under Windows XP, but I have recently installed RedHat v9 on a second hard drive. The keyboard works fine. The mouse pointer works (ie. I can move the mouse around the screen and things get highlighted, tooltips work, etc.), the scroll wheel works, but the buttons do not- ie. I cannot click on a button, drag a window, anything!

Can anybody tell me what might be wrong here? During the installation I selected the "Generic 3 button mouse (USB)".

Thanks,
-Luke

Open up /etc/XF86Config-4

Paste the "InputDevice" sections here.

The following is taken from my XF86Config file:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

*** <snip> ***

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "DevInputMice"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

BTW, does "IMPS/2", above, mean USB?

Also, I typed "cat /proc/bus/usb/devices, and got the following (after reading up on the net I thought that this information may help to determine whether Linux is recognising the two devices seperately or not):

Also, I don't know if this is important or not, but when in console mode (not in X) I get the following message whenever I click a mouse button:

keyboard.c: can't emulate rawmode for keycode 284

The number is 284 for the left button, 285 for right and 286 for middle. This says to me that Linux at least realises that I am clicking the mouse (albeit in the keyboard code...), so maybe there's hope?

Thanks,
-Luke

don't know if this is important guys, but Windows XP has it listed as an "HID-compliant mouse", using a driver by Microsoft.

Yeah... For the record I'm having the exact same problem, but with a BTC 5213URF keyboard/mouse combo on Ubuntu Linux... So this has to be a somewhat common problem...

My Xorg.conf has the following on it:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Options "CorePointer"
Options "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Options "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Options "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Options "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Endsection


I've tried different protocols and things don't seem to be fixxed...

Hi,

It seems that Linux is having problems with correctly interpreting input from HIDs which share the same USB receiver - and the only workaround that I know about is simply getting a second mouse - they're cheap. Not _really_ a workaround, but at least you'll have a fully functional X system ;^)

I'll do some googling (and I encourage you to do so too), maybe someone has found a solution to this.
