USB mouse not detected?


I am not able to use my USB mouse. I tried to go to the Mouse Control Center and tried different drivers, but that didn't work.

I typed lsusb at the command line and Mandrake sees the mouse on one of the ports.
How do I enable it so it will work?

make sure that /etc/X11/XF86Confog-4 has /dev/input/mice in as the path for the mouse device.
You may also want to "cat /dev/input/mice" to see if there's any output when you move the usb mouse. CTRL+C will cancel the output and allow you to continue
