My PS/2 mouse is behaving oddly...
Under windoze it works fine.
But when I start Fedora (Core 3) I don't get any response to the mouse movement/clicks.
It already worked well, but got like this when I had to boot the PC without the mouse attached...
In /etc/sysconfig/mouse I have
FULLNAME="Generic - Wheel Mouse (PS/2)"
and now /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
I tried "cat /dev/input/mice" and then moved the mouse around but got no data on screen.
The same with /dev/mice, /dev/mouse0, /dev/input/mouse0. I don't have /dev/psaux on my system.
Now the funny thing...
I tried to disconnect the mouse from the ps2 port and then connect the keyboard to the mouse's (not Moses
) port and press a few random keys. Next I connect the mouse and keyboard to the correct ports.
And there you have it: the mouse now works!!!
After this I tried again "cat /dev/input/mouse", moved the mouse and I got data appearing on screen as I moved the mouse around.
The same with /dev/mice /dev/input/mouse0 and /dev/mouse0.
Maybe something is missing to initialize the ps/2 port???
In the line MOUSETYPE="IMPS2" should it be "IMPS/2" instead?
I'm not sure about what might cause this issue. Some help would be truly appreciated.
