Question Keyboard and mouse input problems in 9.1


I just installed slack 9.1. I set up my XF86Config, I've tried my keyboard as a pc104 (which is what it should be) as well as pc101. as for the mouse i've tried using auto as well as IMPS/2 as well as NETscrollps/2 (i think that's what it's called) These settings worked fine for me in slack 9.0 but no longer. When I start KDE it loads fine but I can't control it using the keyboard or the mouse. I know it isn't frozen because the clock changes. I tried searching the forum but I couldn't find anything. Can anyone help me?

yeah it's plugged in because it works fine in the console. and it worked fine yesterday when i had slack 9.0. Also it works in windows. Then i formatted and installed 9.1 and now I can't get it working again. Thanks for the suggestions though, does anyone have any others?

BAHHH SOUP!!!

haha

Just thinking... you may want to take a look at the dmesg too... I know since all my stuff is wireless during boot the usb detection comes up and says it's found my wireless transceiver and thus my mouse. I'd image it'd say it at least found a logitech mouse at startup... of not perhaps there's a deeper usb problem... of that works fine I'd pin it on drivers for the mouse or something being botched on reinstall...

just brainwaves, though few and far between.

I have a similar problem with my Logitech Wireless Desktop (wireless keyboard and mouse). During startup it detects both. The keyboard works fine. However, the mouse works only somewhat: the mouse pointer moves vertically when I move the mouse horizontally.

Workaround at the moment: rmmod usbmouse; insmod usbmouse. That seems to make the mouse work again. Since I also run gpm I have to stop it.

I'd prefer if there was a way to make it work right away - which it does only sometimes after boot.

Here is my dmesg:

usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub
uhci.c: USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v1.1
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:1f.2

usbdevfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed dev 2 rqt 128 rq 6 len 18 ret -6
usbdevfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed dev 2 rqt 128 rq 6 len 59 ret -6

Doing killall gpm and rmmod/insmod:

Sep 30 21:12:57 toronto kernel: usb.c: deregistering driver usbmouse
Sep 30 21:12:57 toronto kernel: input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb1:2.1
Sep 30 21:13:01 toronto kernel: usb.c: registered new driver usbmouse
Sep 30 21:13:01 toronto kernel: usbmouse.c: v1.6:USB HID Boot Protocol mouse driver
Sep 30 21:13:04 toronto /usr/sbin/gpm[1191]: imps2: Auto-detected intellimouse PS/2

Thanks for any help...
