mouse problem in gui - Slackware 14.0
 
I'm new to Linux. I installed Slackware 14.0 two days ago. My mouse works fine at the command line but when I startx it's motions become delayed by several seconds and it is choppy. I am not sure what info would be most relevant. I noticed the problem immediately after installation. Since then I have switched to a generic kernel, I made a xorg.conf file, I tried adding the line: Option "HWcursor" "Off", I tried stopping gpm before startx. Problem occurs with different (usb) mice and different windows managers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Which mouse is it? If is an USB one, unplug it then plug it in and 15 seconds later type as root "dmesg | tail". please provide the output as well as the brand / model.

Also please attach an X log to your next post.

Thank you Didier. Mouse is Dell KM632 usb wireless optical, part of keyboard/mouse pair. I will include the outputs which you suggested as attachments. the x log is the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log after closing my most recent kde session. I should mention that I started xfce to post this response and after about 5 minutes, while connecting to my internet service, the mouse started working perfectly, out of the blue. I will log out, copy my x log, and report back on my next session.
Thanks again Didier.

I logged out, copied /var/log/Xorg.0.log, and logged back in. My mouse is not functioning properly again. I will attach log of session in which it started working. I will add that the buttons and wheel work fine so long as the mouse isn't moved, but if I move the mouse, they stop working until the pointer comes to rest.

given up
 
I have given up on this problem and switched operating systems. Thanks for the help,though.

Hi,

it seems to be too late, but I would ask which files you have in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

Appreciate the help
 
Thanks again Markus. The Slackware community has been very helpful but I am not yet ready for the challenges Slackware presents. Perhaps in the Future. I installed Arch over my Slackware installation. I do appreciate your help.

Good luck, you will be back to Slackware sooner or later.
