Configuring 2 mouses!! [solved]


Thats the deal, my mouse works perfectly! The problem is that I use a notebook, so when I plug a mouse in my usb port the led turns on, in dmesg it see my mouse ( microsoft intellimouse usb ) buuuut doesnt work! nice isnt ? To make my mouse usb mouse work I have to go in the xorg.conf file and change some lines in the InputDevice section but when I do this my notebook's mouse stops.

I remmember never had this problem with debian, I just plug the mouse and the 2 works perfectly, even the Wheel... now I cant get the 2 working together... this is very frustrating :/

Im using kernel 2.4 here... but I dont think this may be a kernel problem.

Any ideia?

regards!

yeah! Problem solved!


Lets share with the community:

making 2 mouse work, this is my Mouse section in the xorg.conf file:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier     "X.org Configured"
Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice    "Mouse1"
InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "auto"
Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option      "Core
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse1"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "auto"
Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option      "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection
(...)
Lets explain, when you see CorePointer or CoreKeyboard its what identifies your default keyboard and mouse, you cant have 2 default but you can have an other input device to Send Core Events, its where the Option "SendCoreEvents" with this option Xorg will not ignore the second section.




I hope to help someone with this...

regards!
ps: now lets go try make my mouse wheel work! O_o

Two corrections for a good working, Mouse0 must be the default mouse, so change the Mouse1 to Mouse0
Because the PS/2 mouse is default in the notebook, it cant me removed. And change the Link /dev/mouse to the real device to avoid problems, like the most the right place is /dev/input/mice




this is all. Now you can use with or without the external mouse without any screen in the start saying that your mouse is not configured.
