Mouse doesn't work in terminal window.

Just like the subject says, mouse won't work while in the terminal window...but it does work in KDE. I'm running SUSE 9.2. The same mouse worked fine in FC2 & FC3. Could this be a SUSE setting somewhere??? It's nice being able to highlight and right-click those long, underscore and number filled filenames.

It's an optical MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0.

In a terminal within kde or one of the normal consoles? If a "normal" console, you need to setup "gpm".

Hey thanks. My problem was that I was using ctrl-alt-F1. If use KDE to open a terminal window I can copy/paste/etc.

I'll just use that from now on...
