slow mouse on X
 
Hi all!

I have a small problem in X. I am using redhat 9 and whenever I log on to X my mouse is extremely very slow. I run redhat-config-mouse and just click ok and then the mouse becomes as it should be. but if I log out of X and log on again then it becomes slow again.
here is a part of my XFree86 file

Code:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option            "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option            "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option            "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option            "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
        Identifier  "DevInputMice"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option            "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option            "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option            "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option            "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

One of my questions is why there are two sections for the mouse? should I comment one of them?

There are similar threads regarding the topic but I did not find the solution I was looking for plus the threads where a bit old and left over. So I decided to make a new thread

thanx in advance for any help

What do you have, a USB mouse, a PS/2 Wheelmouse,
both? :)

The section with /dev/psaux corresponds to PS/2
the section with /dev/input/mice to USB. Comment
out the section of the device you don't have.


Cheers,
Tink

I only have a ps/2 wheel mouse. So I commented out the useless stuff and the XFfree86 became as follows:

Code:

Section "ServerLayout"

#        InputDevice    "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
        Identifier    "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

and
Code:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option            "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option            "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option            "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option            "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

the part concerning the entry for the usb mouse has disapeared (I believe its ok since I comented it and rebooted)
but the problem was not solved. again when I logged in the mouse was slow and when I run the redhat-config-mouse tool it came to it's sence. Any more suggestions because it's really furstrating...

Thanx for your immediate replay Tinkster

You might try this;
Right under this line:

Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"

add this:

Option "Resolution" "3000"

That used to be the way to improve the speed of a mouse. It just sets the mouse resolution higher than the screen resolution. It should just default back to match whatever screen resolution you are using. You might also try using the larger of your two screen resolution numbers in place of "3000" (ie: 1024x768 resolution = "1024"). Worth a try.
