Angry Fedora 3 And USB Mouse Trouble


Hello all,

I have been using Fedora Core 3 for a month now and one of the most frustrating issues is the glitchiness around my USB optical mouse. Every so often the mouse freezes up or stops repsponding completely and I have to log off and log back in to restore it. I use keyboard shortcuts to do this. It is a big pain and I was wondering if there was a patch available or easy remedy to the problem. My buddy uses Fedora 3 too and he said he had the same problem until he switched to a PS-2 mouse. Now it doesn't happen anymore. What can I do?

Cliff

what does you xorg.conf input device section look like?

# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"



anything like this? I've always used the usb-mouse module and it's alway's worked out pretty well.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.

before you make any changes do this (in a console under root):

cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak

that way we have a backup you can always get back to. Keep in mind to edit this file you have to be root.

Thanx,
My Input device section:

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
#
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
