Question Mouse going back and forth between /dev/input/event3 and /dev/input/event4


Sometimes, it happens for no reason at boot, and i have to change my xorg.conf and restart X.

Looked around, but i didn't see a way to fix the event number...

Hi,

Do you see anything in the logs, /var/log/Xorg.0.log or dmesg?

If you are using Slackware 13.1 , try without a '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' to see how things work out. If not which version?

It's more udev related than xorg.

I don't know how to fix it :/
