Answers...


Well that sure does answer some things. I am indeed running X version 4. I currently only have a remote connection without X to my linux box so I won't be able to test the previous instructions, but I'll let you know once I get home.

The current configuration is as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

I haven't yet administered the protocol change, because as mentioned earlier, I'm not yet able to test it. However, can you see anything else that should be added/changed in the configuration?

On a related subject. What is considered as restarting X? Rebooting the machine of course, but is for example ctrl-alt-backspace considered as restarting X? Thanks for the help so far!

Other than the protocol option set to "IMPS/2", I use

Option "Buttons" "3"

and

Option "Resolution" "300"

The later makes the mouse track faster if you are running a high res screen. I use 1280x1024. Without the later, the mouse pad isn't large enough and my arm gets tired.

I do not have the Option "Emulate3Buttons" at all.

Enjoy!

Success

Well after twiddling with the XFT...-4 configuration file it worked. The protocol to IMPS/2 and ZAxisMapping on and there we go. Thanks a bundle for the help!
