usb mouse in X has only horizontal movement
I installed Slackware 10.0, with my Microsoft mouse (2 button + 1 wheel) plugged into the USB port. It is recognized correctly at /dev/mouse, and the mouse pointer, cut/paste etc work fine on the text commandline. But when I start X, the mouse pointer has only horizontal movement, and only along the top edge of the screen.
My xorg.conf has,
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse" <-- this soft links to ./dev/input/mice
Option "Protocol" "Microsoft"
(I typed the above from memory, so may have typos...)
I also tried loading,
individually, but the problem persists.
Any suggestions ?
