I barely can control usb mouse movement, same mouse has worked great until last slackware64 stable version. Using Xfce 4.6.2 DM on PC. I noticed xfce4 mouse settings Automatically Uses "Virtual Core XTest" mouse option. Logictech USB is an option but when chosen, option reverts back. Do have the same situation with Xfce settings?
Mouse pointer acts as if it has MS! Driving me insane!
Hints/Changes - its recommended xorg.conf-vesa which is automatically generated no longer be edited manually. Any changes need to go into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d which is empty?
Input hotplugging is no longer done using hal;
instead, it now uses udev for input device detection and keyboard mapping. Found an Archwiki for using udev
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ is the "packaged" configuration directory; all
files ending with ".conf" in this directory are used by the X server
unless there is an identically-named file in the local sysadmin directory.
The local sysadmin config directory is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ - all files
ending with ".conf" in this directory are parsed.
There are several default config files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/:
a "catchall" file for input devices using the evdev driver; this
should work for most hardware in the absence of a better driver
overrides the earlier 10-evdev.conf file and uses the synaptics
driver for all touchpads
overrides the earlier 10-evdev.conf file and uses the wacom driver
for Wacom tablets
this sample ("normal" en layout) keeps the "old" default of allowing Zap'ing the Xserver.
If you need to modify any of these defaults, then copy the relevant file
from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and edit the copy.
When I tried to paste an edited version for my old good mouse settings:
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxis Mapping" "4 5 6 7"
as snippet in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ - startx would not open Xfce, so I just gave up till now.
I use a KVM Switch so Tried: uncomment the following line in /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf:
#options psmouse proto=imps
Next, unload and reload the psmouse module (do this as root):
modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse
From Dugan Make Mouse More Sensitive:http://duganchen.ca/writings/slackware/setup
Also changed usbhid.conf options usbhid mousepoll=2
Identifier “evdev mouse”
MatchProduct “Logitech USB Receiver”
Option “ButtonMapping” “1 8 3 4 5 6 7 2″
I don't know if it will help our situation. Please post your how you solve your mouse insanity. I'll do the same but I don't understand all the options so its trial and error.
