Description Adam Julius 2002-10-31 17:06:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90) Description of problem: I currently have my mouse working and detected by Redhat 8. But if I go to the mouse gui config area and leave the correct config alone and then click through as if im leaving the settings alone, my mouse becomes unusable afterwards. My mouse is a Labtec Optical Wheelmouse, and I use the Microsoft Intellimouse ps/2 option which works fine in all programs and in Redhat linux 8.0 if I do not enter the Mouse configuration program. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to Graphical mouse config 2. Keep mouse settings the same and click through all default settings 3. Use mouse. Additional info:

A few questions for you: 1) When you first run the program, what mouse is selected in the list? 2) Is the mouse misbehaving in X or in console or both? 3) Can you attach the contents of /etc/sysconfig/mouse and /etc/X11/XF86Config?

1) When you first run the program, what mouse is selected in the list? Microsoft Intellimouse PS/2 2) Is the mouse misbehaving in X or in console or both? What happens is that the Gnome stops working right and the mouse pattern becomes unusable. If I click on the redhat in the lower left start menu, it wont show me the menu choices. So I know it doesnt work in X. But I dont know about console. How would I check this when it doesnt work under X? 3) Can you attach the contents of /etc/sysconfig/mouse and /etc/X11/XF86Config? I attached both of them before I enter mouseconfig. If you want the ones after as well, please advise.

Ok, wait a minute. Did you run redhat-config-mouse or mouseconfig? And yes, the contents of the files after running the program would be interesting as well.
Comment 6 Adam Julius 2002-10-31 20:09:03 UTC
I ran the graphical mouse program from gnome, which is redhat-mouse-config correct? I said mouseconfig in my previous post which was a typo. Sorry about the confusion. How would I manually get into mozilla without my mouse from a regular windows keyboard? If I can figure that out, I can easily send over the attachments. Thanks.

Ok, I was confused there for a second. I don't know how to navigate mozilla without a mouse. Maybe you could have an xterm open, run the tool, Alt-Tab back into the terminal and make copies of the files to the /tmp directory, then run the tool again to unbreak the mouse. Then start mozilla and attach the files you copied into /tmp? Would that work?
Comment 8 Adam Julius 2002-11-01 16:03:28 UTC
I notice that if I click on close window in the mouse area, the mouse type works. But if I click ok with the default mouse setting it messes it up. Ill try what you said.
