After reading all the help on this subject I still have no viable solution.
I'm running Slackware 10.3 on MS Virtual PC 2004 (going to use it for Java testing in a few months) and got the command prompt working fine.
However, my Logi MX500 (USB wired optical) isn't working. I've tried mouseconfig, xorgconfig and using jed to edit xorg.conf to no avail. I've checked and double checked things and still nothing.
I keep getting the device not found error, but ironically the mouse pointer is working at the command prompt level. Is it to do with the way the VM implements mice? Or am I just doing something stupid.
I'll post conf details when I'm not rushing for work
