mouuse sensitiverty


Ok running Lucid, has been a bet gitchy here and there, but generaly ok.

I use Audacity alot, so need "drag" with the mouse. Also "drag" on the desktop has gone totally now it jus opens the file or folder

I'm not a newbie at this, just very confused, at the moment.

Any surgestions as to a mouse control app that works?

Using a ps2 led mouse, it works fine under wine/crossover apps.

Have you checked settings, you don't need an application to set mouse sensivity.

I have in System -> Perferances -> mouse

But draging an icon around on the desktop usually results in it being opened

Where would you recomend the drag and drop setting to be?

my setting at mo, see scrn shot

So it opens the file/folder on press, not release?

That's funny. Nothing should happen when you press, it should launch on release.

Try to press and hold the left button on the icon. Did it launch? If not, release it, and that's when it should launch if everything's normal.

This is getting weird. Now I haven't touched anything, do as you asked nothing happens. Double click opens, and drag drags!

so by hook or by crook, it works. thanks for your help

Hi,

Do you see anything in the logs?

How do you have the 'xorg.conf' setup for the mouse device?

Hi,

'/var/log/syslog' would be one for start. Check the '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' initial errors or warnings. 'dmesg' if something occurs immediate on boot.

For the IntelliMouse IMPS/2 a sample config that would replace your section if necessary;
Quote:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection
Set things up for your mouse type since you really didn't provide detailed information.

Quote:
sample xorg.conf generated configure to use for some parameter identification.
# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"

# On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
# protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:

# Option "Protocol" "Auto"

# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"

# The mouse device. The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
# which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.

Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
# Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
# Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)
...
Look at the available protocol in the sample above. Instead of 'auto' you could choose the proper device protocol type via Option "Protocol" "Auto". Set the specific device via the Option "Device" "/dev/mouse".

I also suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem.
