USB Hotplug Problem...


I had a thread going, for a while, about my usb mouse, which won't recognize on my laptop. I've come to het conclusion that its a hotplug problem, since my usb flash drive works fine and al tlhe correct modules are loaded.

lsusb gives me nothing except in -v mode, i get C_CONNECT at the correct port. I am wondering if there isn't some kind of configuration in hotplug tha tmight be missing? Because it just doesn't assign anything to my mouse, like it does for my flash drives.

How is your mouse setup in /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

This is my xorg config, but I'm quite sure that it is not the problem.

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier "MouseTwo"
	Driver "mouse"
	Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
	Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
	Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
	Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
	Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
The problem is at a much lower level, because the device does not show up anywhere at all.

Not /var/log/messages or /proc/bus/usb or lsusb...

Clearly, hotplug is not recognizing and assigning a driver to this device. Why not? All the correct modules are loaded... It doesn't make any sense.

Hmmm... dunno.

So, it's an old 2 button mouse? I assume that because you are telling it to 'emulate' a 3 button mouse. If it is a 3 button mouse, then you don't need to emulate it.

The xorg configuration as nothing to do with the problem.

Its not an old mouse, its a new, wireless, optical mouse. But furthermore -- the system doesn't recognize the mouse at a much lower, driver level -- its not just xorg. Entries for it do not show up anywhere.

OK. I understand that. And, I don't know what the problem is with your USB thing.

But, aside from that, I'm sure you don't want the option for "emulate 3 buttons" set for a mouse that already has 3 buttons... for whenever you get the usb problem resolved.
