Problems with logitech wireless mouse


I have a Logitech Cordless Mouseman Optical but im having problems with it in linux. I used to have get a fatal error: mousedev or something but i fixed it with
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd
alias keybdev usbkbd
alias mousedev usbmouse

On my 2.6.5 kernel my wireless mouse doesn't work unless I plug in my corded ps/2 mouse in and then both of them work. (Everything works fine in 2.4.22) Even so, sometimes they stop responding at random times. I would like to not have to plugin in my ps/2 corded mouse in before my cordless USB mouse works. Also, i would like the mouse to respond and not stop responding at random times. When both are pluged in, only my corded mouse's scroll wheel works
thanks, hope i made sense.

You need to have USB Human Interface Device (HID) enabled in your kernel when you compiled it. do a lsusb to check whether your USB devices has been detected. If not, I suspect it is the kernel. I have been using USB mouses (MX700, MX300, and Wheel Mouse Optical) with Slackware with no problem at all. To get scroll working just search this forum.
