I have searched and searched for an answer here, Google and at the PCLOS forums. I desperately do not want to have to use XP on this laptop but the cursor issue at least is a deal breaker for me. Here the deal:
Installed PCLOS on a Dell Latitude 100L, all seemed to work well, including suspend for the first day or two, then for no apparent reason I can see when it would wake after suspend I would have no cursor. If I moved it on the touch pad or with my wireless mouse things on the screen would react as if it was there, just no pointer to be seen. I have read things that point to this being a common issue but darned if I can find any posted solutions to it. That's the deal breaker.
Now for what is probably operator error:
I bought a Dynex wireless G notebook card from Best Buy as I had read several reviews online of people saying how well it worked with Linux and how surprised they were by that. I have never configured a wireless card in Linux (or really Windows for that matter as this is my first ever laptop) So I am fairly sure this is the easier of the two to fix, I just dn't see what I have done wrong.
Like I said, I really don't wnat to have to put windows on it if I can avoid it. I have been using PCLOS on my primary PC for months now and Ubuntu for several years before that. Everything else works great with PCLOS on the laptop, it's just what's not working is a real show stopper.
If anyone can help, please do, I will be very, very grateful indeed. I have posted this at the PCLOS forums but after two days lot's of looks but no response except a bump by me.
Please, save me from having to use Windows!!!
Thanks to all in advance.
