Non-functional USB mouse, 9.1


I just did a fresh install of 9.1 and dropline gnome. I am not running any apps, and everything in X is PAINFULLY slow. My mouse stutters across the screen, and things like text cursors blink at very strange, varied rates. I am using the same X config file I used with 9.0, and I didn't have these problems with it then.

Update: I've changed the topic of this thread to reflect the persisting problem. See below post for details. The above problem is caused by the battstat applet, and I don't know how to fix it.

well shit, now my usb mouse is fucked up, too. 9.1 sucks so far. I might as well go back to 9.0 ... this is ridiculous.

I think it was the battstat applet which was making everything slow. I killed it--I don't really need it. The mouse has stopped stuttering, and the cursors don't blink weirdly anymore.

I do still have a problem with my USB mouse. It only moves the cursor up and down. It is wireless, but has fresh batteries. It worked a minute ago ... not sure why it's now only moving up and down. Any takers?

go back to slack 9.0 wich is use with pride too *g*
maybe your problems result from using dropline-gnome, dg so far only supports slack 9.0 so maybe you should use the gnome version comming with slack 9.1 to get rid of this problem ...
slack 9.0 + dropline-gnome

or

slack 9.1 + gnome

well I got my mouse working, too. dropline seems to work ok, since there isn't much difference between 9.0 and 9.1.
