Hello, my name is Wechtlein Uns, and I recently installed Slackware 12.1 on my shuttle computer. It's an old one, with an AMD athlont +1700 processor. I configured the mouse with xorgsetup and edited the xorg.conf file to show this:
Section "Input Device"
Option "protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZaxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
I'm using a Dell logitech optical mouse. Now then, for a while, things went fine, but somehow it got started that when I had my mouse over an application window that had a scrollbar, the window would scroll up and down in a kind of jerky motion. I couldn't stop it by scrolling the wheel on the mouse. I could scroll the wheel on the mouse, and the screen would respond, but after I was finished scrolling, it would go back to the jerky motion. I can't get my work done!
I've tried using a ps/2 mouse, but the system won't even recognize that. (I change the xorg.conf file accordingly, too.) This has also happened when I was using ubuntu. Though it didn't happen when I was using damn small linux.
I really want to keep slackware, so I need somehow to solve this problem! Please help. thank you.
