Multiple mice


I'm trying to add a second mouse to my Linux box (FC2) and have it register as a second pointer on the screen. I did some digging around online but most of the HOWTOs on this subject deal with older versions of X, and I'm not sure what's still valid and what isn't. Has anyone messed with this and gotten it to work?

yup, mostly with a laptop


cat /dev/input/mouse0
or similar to see which mouse is which, and just have more input devices in section "server layout".

just make sure your "InputDevice" sections are right and you have no duplicate names
