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.

Created attachment 65 [details] gzipped patch to add imps2 support to dosemu
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2000-01-19 16:28:59 UTC
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 To: $_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.
