Mouse moving only up and down
I would hate to post a question covered before but this is surely a repeat question. I have found an answer to it but I can only find a temp. fix and not a permanent one. I hope you can help.
When I boot linux Mandrake and the log in screen appears (GUI). My MS Intellimouse Explorer USB only will move up and down and not left to right.
I can fix it by Ctrl & Alt & F3 to another terminal and do the following command after logging in as root,
modprobe -r usbmouse
(I found this fix in an archive message here)
Then back to the GUI log in and my mouse works perfectly.
This I have to do every boot up.
Does anyone have a permanent fix? If you need anymore info please ask.
