gzipped patch to add imps2 support to dosemu none

Description Hans de Goede 2000-01-19 16:22:04 UTC
The internal mouse driver of dosemu doesn't support imwheel mouses,
making it impossible to use such a mouse with dosemu, unless the mouse
is setup as ps2 mouse everywhere (both under X and gpm and svgalib)

The problem is that an imwheel mouse is ps2 compatible untill initialised
as imwheel mouse. So once X or gpm is started with imwheel support,
dosemu's ps2 mouse driver doesn't work anymore.

I have a clean patch which adds imwheel support to dosemu-0.99.13.

I'll attach said patch to this bugreport.

Ehm hint, the patch should be applied with -R (oops)

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-19 16:45:59 UTC
Applied in dosemu-0.99.13-3.

Thanks for incorperating my patch, this makes life a lott easier for me, but for
other people it might be handy to add a note to the sample dosemu.conf and a
README.redhat explaining that with RedHat's version imps2 is a support and valid
mouse type.

For dosemu.conf I suggest changing:
$_mouse = "microsoft"   # one of: microsoft, mousesystems, logitech, mmseries
                        # mouseman, hitachi, busmouse, ps2

$_mouse = "microsoft"   # one of: microsoft, mousesystems, logitech, mmseries
                        # mouseman, hitachi, busmouse, ps2, imps2

For README.redhat I suggest:
This version of dosemu supports ps2 microsoft intellimouse or compatible
(logitech mouseman+ / firstmouse+).
To use it set $_mouse to "imps2" in /etc/dosemu.conf.
