I am using Slackware 8.0, and my GUI is KDE 3. For some reason the pointer only senses my mouses motions if I move fast, but it rarely senses them if I move the mouse slowly. I am using an optical mouse, in case that makes any difference, any idea what the problem is?
What kind of surface are you using it on, and is it wireless?
Don't laugh, but make sure the receiver isn't too close to the monitor (if a CRT monitor). The electromagnetic noise from a CRT can disrupt the signals from a wireless mouse and create this sort of effect.
Ok, I guess I should give you my set up, the mouse is running through a KVM switch and I have three computers connected to it. The mouse works fine on the Ubuntu and Windows computer, but doesn't on the slackware one. And no, it's not wireless.
And texmex, how would I get to the xorg.conf file?
