mouse slow on startup..?


hi people,

i got my touch pad and usb mouse on my laptop working with the following:

Code:
# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Pointer"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver     "mouse"
Option     "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option     "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
Option     "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option     "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# ServerLayout sections.
# **********************************************************************
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Simple Layout"
    Screen "Screen 1"
    InputDevice "Pointer" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "SendCoreEvents" 
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
it works fine but during boot i get something like:
"IMPS/2 common for most mice" or something like that, and there it pauses quite awhile before proceeding. when i unplug the usb mouse and then boot that doesn't happen and my touch pad still works fine and boot becomes much faster.

QUESTION: any way to speed this up also with the usb mouse?


thanks in advance

I'd probably think since mousepads on laptops usually use just the PS/2 protocol, your getting this delay as your other usb mouse is a scroller type and is trying to use the IMPS/2 protocol. Don't know a way around this but with more details you may have might help, test it using a regular PS/2 mouse connected as well and see if it does the same thing perhaps.

thx for the reply,

that's not going to work well because i don't have a PS2 on laptop. i can try to hammer it into the usb port but i don't think that's going to work well

How bout a regular non scroller mouse that uses the usb port to connect to since they do make those you know and it won't try loading the IMPS/2 protocol at boot up.. this is just to test to see if that is the reason its hanging at bootup..
