USB Mouse Controller issues


Hi, I have just recently switched over to Linux and I am getting the hang of the interface.

I am using Fluxbox on Slackware and I am having a problem with the USB Mouse Controller. During the operation of X it will randomly decided to jump to the left side of the screen and will not move away... The only answer for getting the mouse back is to restart X.

All of my other USB hardware works fine.
I am very confused and all my Linux friends are stumped as well.

Does anyone have any ideas?

There is a configuration file for X. //etc/x11/xorg.conf (in Ubuntu)!

There is also a mouse section, this is wat is in my section
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
Compare it with yours.

Normaly you can adjust the behaviour of your mouse in KDE or GNOME and in X.

For newer mouses I gave seen "ZAxisMapping" "6 7".
You could try to load a cdversion like ubuntu or knoppix, mostly they recognize the hardware very well. You can use a LIVE CD so you have nothing to install. If this works, you can check the KDE or GNOME settings for the mouse and the X file, and adjust your own file.
