rc.gpm-sample is generated by mouseconfig if you don't run it you wont have rc.gpm-sample


FYI gpm hasn't been touched since at least 13.0 if it was broken then someone would have noticed by now.

Thank you.

I was doing a manual installation of the system and I had not run the script mouseconfig.

Now it's ok!
