KDE 3.4 Debian USB Mouse Not working


Hello,
I've done a bunch seaching and reading and i can't seem to find the exact same issue. I'm running KDE on a debian distro and the USB mouse won't work.
lsusb returns:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 413c:3200 Dell Computer Corp.

The mouse is a Dell USB ball type wheel and two buttons.

I found a little app called usbview and it can see the USB port and sees the Dell USB Mouse from within KDE.

But the mouse doesn't work....

Any Help?

Paul

sounds like a prob with your xorg.conf

what does your section relating to the mouse/mice look like??

it might reference the wrong device in /dev/ e.g /dev/psaux and not /dev/input/mice. or the other way round

and might use the wrong protocol. i use auto normally.

At first I did not have a xorg.conf, so I ran xorgconf and created one here's the section:

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "Auto" # Auto detect
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"


Thanks for the speedy reply!!

try changing this line:

Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"

to

Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"

then (not in X) plug it in and see what "dmesg" says....
