Exclamation USB & PS/2 mouse problem!!!


Hi ya!

I have a NEC Versa P520 Laptop with SuSE Linux 9.3 Pro running on the KDE system (latest stable version). I have a touchpad mouse integrated at the bottom which works fine, but I also have Microsoft 3-button mouse for USB or with a hardware add-on compatible to PS/2... When I plug it in at start (or ever USB whilst running), YaST2 recognizes that there is new hardware but fails to use it... What should I do to let my mouse work on my laptop?

Thanks!

Edit your ServerLayout to look like this.
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
  Identifier   "Layout[all]"
  InputDevice  "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
  InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
  InputDevice  "Mouse[1]" "AlwaysCore"
  Option       "Clone" "off"
  Option       "Xinerama" "off"
  Screen       "Screen[0]"
EndSection
Then add this into the config file
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Mouse[0]"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection
This line ' Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" ' may need to to changed to yoursecound mouse point. But this one should work.
Once changed you will need to restart X. NOTE: make a backup of your orginal file in case you make an editing mistake.
See how that works.
