In FC2 T3, it seems that system-config-mouse does not install .desktop
file  - at least, such a file was definitely not installed on my
system (clean istall).  As a result, this tool does not show in the
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2004-05-03 14:20:13 EDT
I removed the .desktop file intentionally because it is not really
used often enough to justify a placement in the menu.  The main use
for system-config-mouse is in anaconda and firstboot reconfig mode.
Comment 2 Sasha 2004-05-03 14:33:03 EDT
Granted, it is not used frequently - but sometimes one does have to
use it (e.g., when replacing a mouse). There should be some way of
doing it for those who do not know that they should  type
system-config-mouse.  Maybe hiding it in a submenu. Releasing a system
in which user cannot easily do so basic a thing as replacing a mouse
seems broken to me. 

By the way, same argument (...not used often enough) can be made about
a lot of other config tools - one does not use, e.g., kickstart
configurator or system-config-services every day, yet we have left
them  in the menu.
