usb mouse and plug/play support
Hey everybody. I bought a wireless, usb wheel mouse with a usb connector for the purpose of an alternative to the ps/2 touchpad. I have got it working correctly from automatic hardware detection at bootime. Yet if i don't plug in the usb connector at bootime and the login screen comes up, and then i plug in my mouse, it doesn't work. Naturally i have had this problem before with accidental cables becoming unplugged on other devices. I'm wondering whether there is a plug and play support in linux so that i can just hook up my mouse and have it ready to go quickly without having to restart the computer, and how to configure it.
