Change Mouse in Fedora 14?


I recently installed Fedora 14 to set up a Samba server to replace my old FC3 Samba server.

When I installed Fedora 14, I used an older three button Logitech PS-2 mouse. After the successful installation, I found an older Microsoft PS-2 mouse with a mouse wheel, and substituted it for the Logitech. The mouse is connected through an older Linksys KVM switch.

While the Logitech mouse works perfectly, the MS mouse is unusable. The cursor flies around the screen and opens random windows and programs. Obviously, the wrong driver is loaded for this mouse.

I have a lot of experience with FC3, but almost none with Fedora 14. So much has changed, that I have no idea where to go to make the necessary change(s). Doing a Google search is hard because most responses either relate to curors or other Linux distributions.

Can somebody help me configure Fedora 14 for the proper mouse?

Thanks.

you might need to make a /etc/X11/xorg.conf

fedora dose not use it( or even make one) by default any more ,but will if one is there .
everything is set by udev now

I ended up replacing the MS mouse with a newer Logitech wheel mouse. Everything works properly now.

Thanks.
