Description Bill Nottingham 2006-07-27 01:23:40 UTC
IBM T40p laptop. Has both stick mouse and touchpad.

anaconda-written X config only had a Synaptics section - no mouse section. So
the stick mouse didn't work.

Per ajax, this should work.  If not, it's an X server bug.

Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2006-07-27 19:44:06 UTC
notting, can you attach your X log and config?

Erm, assume Load "synaptics" isn't commented out. It behaves the same regardless.

Fixed in xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-20, verified on my thinkpad.  Now, if parsing the
log file reveals no instances of the mouse driver or of the void driver, the
server synthesizes a mouse device section.

I pulled in 1.1.1-21 today after a 2 week holiday and i've been running xorg
without a mouse section in xorg.conf for a while, to allow auto-detection. As of
-21 (or probably -20, as read in post #7), it creates 2 devices, so the mouse
moves twice as fast. It used to create only 1, so it worked fine before.
Here's the relevant section of the log:

(WW) <default pointer>: No Device specified, looking for one...
(II) <default pointer>: Setting Device option to "/dev/input/mice"
(--) <default pointer>: Device: "/dev/input/mice"
(==) <default pointer>: Protocol: "Auto"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
