optical intellimouse mouse not working in GUI
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:24 EDT
Using rawhide 20010211.
Mouse is a Microsoft Optical Intellimouse with the ps2 adapter used.
I'm doing a net install, once X starts (on the mouse selection screen), the
second I move the mouse, the cursor jumps to the top right of the screen
and stays there. Moving the mouse produces no movement, except
occasionally the cursor jumps across the top of the screen, then
immediately back to the top right corner.
Dave do we have one of these to test?
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Tried the same mouse in usb mode (just didn't use ps2 adapter), and it worked
fine. Also tested a normal ps2 intellimouse and it worked fine.
Also, I went through a test install with the Optical Intellimouse in ps2 mode.
I told it I had a ps2 intellimouse and once the install had completed, X worked
fine with the mouse, this seems to only be a problem in anaconda.
Brock or Dave, do we have one of these mice in the test lab?
Nope. they are fairly new. We will need to order one.
Ok, putting in NEEDINFO state until it arrives.
The mouse has arrived. I've done some tests and everything works fine for me
using both the USB and PS/2 ports. Resolving as notabug.
