Angry USB mouse wont work after boot


I have a USB mouse (called "Intelli-/Wheel Mouse with Wheel, USB" in YAST). It works perfectly, the problem is that I have to set it up every time I boot. That is it doesn't work right after KDE started, I have to go to YAST --> Hardware --> Mouse. It then automaticly picks the right mouse and it works.

All I know about my system:
Suse 9.3
I think HD and CPU wont matter, if you need to know I'll look it up.

Have a nice day,

MS usb mouse

look at ur /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with gedit or kedit and check how mouse is setup. There shld b something like mouse
imps/2 or usb or auto
sendcore true
ZaxisMapping 4 5
and so on
then with that info present it to ur os web site or the LQ forum for ur os. LQ may have FAQ for ur os. Good luck.

My mouse works with USB in Fedora Core4 64-bit. /etc/X11/xorg.conf has following entries:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

If protocol is auto, try changing to IMPS/2. Check also /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /dev/input/ for "mouse" or "mice" Then save and reboot. good luck !
