Description Ali Fay 2003-04-15 10:55:16 UTC
Description of problem:
The mouse keeps reseting itself to the top-right hand corner. It happens 
randomly. Also, the right-mouse button is simulated to click - even though I 
don't touch the mouse! This could be a loose connection on my motherboard 
(Abit KA-7), as I had no problems on my other motherboard.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Don't know! It is random.

This is a classic behavior from mouse misconfiguration.  Try to login as root on
a text terminal CTRL-ALT-F1, then run mouseconfig.  Set different mice then
restart X to test the mouse.  A sure fire way of doing that would be:
init 4 && init 3

I highly doubt this is KDE's fault.

I solved the problem by upgrading the BIOS to the latest version (TY). The 
problem has now completely gone!! This is for anyone on a A-Bit KA-7 
motherboard.
