I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 recently converted to run Fedora 13.
Everything seems fine except the touchpad mouse doesn't work outside the X-Window. When I boot to full multi-user mode, the mouse doesn't work at all. I think this is responsible for the typical UNIX copy & paste by selecting and right clicking not to work within GUI.
Here's the output of
# xinput list
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=11 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Macintosh mouse button emulation id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
Can anyone please advise me what I need to do to make the mouse functional?
thanks for any insight, and Merry Christmas.
