wireless mouse problem
 
Hi, I hope someone can help me with this. I have a duel boot system and my new wireless mouse isn't working properly with the linux side (I think the keyboard is ok). It acts as though I have the left button pressed the whole time - moving icons around and opening files as though they've been clicked.

The new hardware is a Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 1000. It has a keyboard and mouse which are both connected through a single USB port.

I've had a look at the XF86Config file, but it's all greek to me. Below are any sections which mention the mouse/keyboard ...

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

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
EndSection

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

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "DevInputMice"
Driver "Mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Any help greatfully received! Thank you

This may not be the answer you are looking for, but even though my mouse/keyboard are USB, I use the USB to ps2 adaptors and plug them into the ps2 ports instead.

This is because I personally think that ps2 is more responsive when your system is under load (e.g. games, programs loading, etc). I am no expert but I think I recall being told that ps2 ports are interrupt based, and USB is polled.

You will probably also find that linux will have an easier time of configuring the devices automatically...

Hope that helps!
(easy to try anyway if you have the usb->ps2 adaptors supplied)
