Mouse not working


I am running Suse 8.1 and my mouse stopped working. Everytime I move my mouse, it treats it as if I was "left clicking". Does anyone have any suggestions? It is a Logitech USB mouse.

Try login as root in safe mode. Run:

init 3



init 5

Hope that will help;-)

Have fun :-)

I had all sorts of problems with suse and the mouse thing too. If you choose the wrong type during x setup, it's jacked. I could never get it to work selsecting logitech mouse. I select ps/2 mouse and then edit xf86config by hand.
