Thumbs down Need Help Urgently


I've got a problem.

I've messed around with my mouse setting on RH9 and now
I can't use my current mouse.

(I need to change the mouse device settings to USB)

My keyboard is running fine. However, i don't know the key
stroke to launch the System Tools > Mouse applets.

Can I run the mouse configuration applets via the shell command and if I can what command so I have to key in?

How do I run the shell via the command run function?

redhat-config-mouse should do the trick.

Thanks guys

Managed to find the solution from Redhat site.

<gnu nobb> you are right. The 'mouseconfig' command
did do the trick.

Thanks Kindly,
