Mouse Issues


xorg.conf


Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Protocol "Auto" << have tried IMPS/2 and ExplorerPS/2


Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"



The mouse does not operate at all how it should. It seems that moving the mouse left will move the pointer up, moving it right will take it down. Also holding the right mouse button moves it right. Also, clicking is taking place at random through all of this. Not sure what I need to do here, or if there is something elsewhere I need to change. The mouse is Wireless Optical Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 This mouse worked without a hitch in FC2.

Thanks in advance!!!

This is assuming a standard PS/2 mouse with 3 buttons and wheel
Try:
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

What does you Device line point to? If it points to /dev/mouse try changing it to /dev/input/mice

No luck.

ls -l /dev/mouse showed that it indeed was ppointing at input/mice.

I did however change the Device to /dev/input/mice, still no luck.

Here is where I am at so far...ready for more suggestions.

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Protocol "IMPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"


Again this is a Wireless Optical USB MS Intellimouse Explorer.

Thanks Again!!!

P.S. Dont make me go back to FC ;/

 Driver "mouse"
 Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
 
 Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
 Option "Buttons" "7"
 Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
 EndSection

That did'nt work either...I did however find the solution here:

Go down a ways...it lists renaming a module as that seemed to cause the issues Thank You all for your help!!!
