Irratic mouse movement under KDE / Slackware 10.2


Hope you can help. My mouse is not working properly when using KDE and Slackware. It is a standard PS2 mouse on a PS2 port, loaded using the generic PS2 mouse driver. I have tried using the other PS2 options under 'mouseconfig' from a console, but this makes no difference. The mouse has worked before nicely using DSLinux and I am a little confused as to why this is a problem for Slackware.

Basically, if I move the mouse at a normal pace, the cursor goes crazy and shoots all over the screen if the totally wrong direction. If I move the mouse very very very slowly, it sometimes behaves normally. Please let me know how you may have fixed a similar or exact problem in the past.

Thank you in advance
