Description of problem:
Kensington 2-button PS2 mouse worked fine as Microsoft 2-button during
installation, but did not work right after reboot. Wanted to change mouse
configuration, ran redhat-config-mouse:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-mouse/redhat-config-mouse.py", line 5, in ?
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-mouse/mouse_gui.py", line 26, in ? import gtk
packages/gtk/__init__.py, line 19, in ?
RuntimeError: could not open display
Line 5 is "import mouse_gui".

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in as root
Were you running this from inside X Windows or not?
This was run from the command line, not from X.
Ok, that's what I thought. This bug has been fixed in RHL 9 and beyond. I
created a text mode interface so that if you start redhat-config-mouse from the
command line, it will bring up the text interface instead of the GUI version.
