Does the mouse work before you enter KDE? If it doesn't, maybe you should run mousedrake. You can run that with alt->f2 to open a run box.
You'll have to use the keyboard to set a few options here. Type mousedrake <tab> space.
Tab a round to root, activate it and type the pass then push enter.
Try choosing a different mouse.
I got the mousdrake window but you cant configure it there.I got the control center window open but I cant tab to Hardware which I believe brings you to mouse configuration.I can get a console window open but I think im not in as root because it says my username@localhost.How do I change that to root?
My comp is the one running in my sig. It has that processor and an i810 onboard graphics chipset.
I reinstalled again, I switch mouses for install, I'm using my original HP mouse instead of my Microsoft Intelli 3.0 Explorer. I also installed GNOME this time and booted into that first, but transitioning into KDE, I had no problems this time.
