Hi there... I don't know if this problem is common, but I haven't been able to find much on it. Seems some people are having problems with their mouse device not being found when they run startx, but my problem is a bit different. You see, if I boot my system and run startx, I get the following:
xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/psaux
No such device
(Typed from memory so I can't guarantee that's accurate to the letter)
However, if I run startx a second time, I get no errors, and everything works perfectly - including the mouse.
The device Mouse1 defined in my XF86Config-4 is as follows:
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
And in the appropriate line in my ServerLayout section is just:
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
My mouse is a Microsoft wireless one. It's plugged into a PS/2 port, but the actual mouse cable has a USB plug on it. I'm using an adapter that came with it to connect it to the PS/2 port. I'm not sure if that's of any importance.
Any ideas why this is happening, and how to fix it? Thanks
