Thanks for response, will try to offer information I can.
Gave up on MEPIS and have reverted to Debian as I can get that to install and not just run from the live CD.
During install it gets to the xserver-xfree86 setup and I am getting a screen which asks to auto detect a mouse, answering yes to this results in the message;
keyboard:timeout no AT keyboard found (?)
Responding no takes me through to the configure mouse page and I am selecting /dev/input/mouse, as I believe this to be correct.
The mouse itself is a generic (under windows) usb optical scroll mouse made by Lyromedia, and which I have had working once in the past three days under the KDE GUI (after a reboot xstart failed to work and kept chucking me back to the command line or the mouse just refused to work at all)
During the setup screens I notice that it keeps flagging up;
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
for the lines when setting up gsfonts and "vera"?
when typing in suggested code the message is
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
There is no xorg in /var/log
Any ideas as to where I am going wrong?
Had a look in XFree86.0 and this mentions -
Configured Mouse: Core Pointer
Option "Device" "dev/input/mice"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Configured Mouse: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Configured Mouse: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
Configured Mouse: Buttons: 5
XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Configured Mouse" (type: MOUSE)
Configured Mouse: ps2EnableDataRoporting: succeeded
Then there are several warnings along the lines of;
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf" already registered at priority 0
Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!
