X working, but mouse is not.


I got my X running, but I have problems with my intellimouse. I did choose number 9 the intellimouse in the xf86config.
This is what it says in the x config:

identifier "Mouse1"
driver "mouse"
option "Protocol" "IntelliMouse"
option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

So the mouse IS working BUT it cannot be used. it bounces like a maniac when touched so needless to say ---> impossible to use.

Somebody has a good config for PS2 Microsoft intellimouse? I would like the scroll to work also? How should I modify those lines?

If it is PS/2 mouse you have to change protocol

Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"

and add this

Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Plus you better make it /dev/psaux
If you use gpm it's supposed to be /dev/gpmdata - I think - plus you have to configure it.
The first thing I always do it to get rid of gpm.
