mouse settings reset at X login


Every time I log onto X (RH8, using gnome, but pretty sure it happend with KDE too), my mouse sensitivity is really low and the mouse moves so slooow... If I run redhat-config-mouse and then hit ok, the mouse gets its speed back. Once I log off and then back on, the mouse is back to its crawl and I must run the config again.

I'm using a MS intellimouse explorer optical mouse. Its a USB mouse, but I use the supplied ps2 adapter.

Here are the relevant sections in my XF86Config:

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

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

I have no idea why there are two mouse entries. Will deleteing the incorrect one help?

Well, I'm not sure in Gnome, but in KDE, the control centre allows you to adjust the speed/acceleration of the mouse without touching XF86...

Even with the speed set on max it is too slow. Once I run redhat-config-mouse it becomes set the way it should be. All I do is run the program and hit ok, with out touching any settings, and it reinitializes the mouse. I shouldnt have to do this eveytime I log on.

thanx
