Choppy cursor in web browsers


My cursor gets choppy and stutters while switchin web pages, clickin the back/forward button and such. This happens in all web browsers. It's connected thru USB and is a Logitech 3 button (3rd button a wheel to) optical mouse.

I was lookin in my XF86Config file and noticed..


Section "InputDevice"

# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
Identifier "DevInputMice"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
Identifier "DevInputMice"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

It's setup as a Generic 3 button USB mouse in Mouse Configuration, is that right?

I find the idea of having four mouse sections, 2 pairs of identical
twins, all pointing to the same physical device, a bit odd, and
have never tried that :}

Try commenting three of them out? ;)

Cheers,
Tink

mine does that too.

Isn't it just to do with the way Linux allocates system resources?
It would be great to make it smooth?

Oops, must have double pasted, fixed

I tried a few different mouse settings, cursor speed and such, it helped some. I guess its no big deal, more of an annoyance. Even if Linux isn't allocating enough resources for it, you would think the monster systems we have would be more than enough spare resources for it

Having double-pasted still leaves you with two
mouse entries pointing to the same device.

Another thing would be to check whether USB and
video or hdd share the same IRQ for some reason.

Tink
