Question


I installed slack pretty recently but I've got problems to get my mouse working in X.
It works just fine in the console but when I start X the cursor goes up in the upper left corner of the screen if I touch the mouse.
I've run xf86config several times and tried alot of different settings for my mouse (which is a PS/2 by the way)
imps2, ps2, logitech (it's a logitech), even serial
No use. What to do? could it even have something to do with the window manager? (KDE)

I would really be glad if I got some help with this problem since I feel kind of handicapped without X.

I am having kind of the same problem. Only difference is that my mouse will not work at all. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do?

Johan,

I am also running slackware 7.1 with Logitech P/S2 mouse. I could not get the thing to work properly in X the first time I installed it. I finally got it to work, but I installed it 3 times to do it. I don't know if there's an easier way, but if there is, I couldn't find it. Maybe someone else will be able to give another way to do it, since reinstallation is a pain.

Looks as if Logitech doesn't co-operate very well with Slackware. Hey Johan, does it do the same thing within GNOME? That would be one way to test if it is a problem within KDE or not. But yeah, xf86config should do the trick, but it seems that it doesn't always work either when I have messed with it trying to setup my X in general. I ahve done xf86config with the same options and came out different on each one. Who knows!

I'm going to try some other options aswell (change desktop manager, mouse and even change computer :-)
Hopefully that'll do the trick.
