When I upgraded to RedHat Linux 7.0 it became hard to drag items around, because Linux thinks I'm doubleclicking (when I'm just pressing down the button).
The mouse works well under - uhm - another operating system.
My /etc/sysconfig/mouse is the same as before.
Is it something with my configuration? The kernel? XFree86?
I haven't seen your configuration. ;o) I'll bet it is what the problem
is though. I am using a Logitech Mouseman+ Wheel. I also have 4 other
Logitech mice and they all work fine. If it is misconfigured however,
I have seen weird behaviour like you speak of. Quit X, and run
"mouseconfig". Choose "Logitech Mouseman" and choose 3 button if it is
3 button, etc.. Also, make sure you select Serial or PS/2 correctly.
Save and exit and startx. All should be well. Either way, please come back
here and let me know.
Hope this helps!
My /etc/sysconfig/mouse is
FULLNAME="Logitech MouseMan/FirstMouse (PS/2)"
The pointer section in /etc/X11/XF86Config is
My /dev/mouse/ points to /dev/psaux that has Major,Minor=10,1
Running mouseconfig, selecting Logitech MouseMan/FirstMouse (PS/2), gives the same configuration.
What else could it be? I'm running GNOME/Enlightenment. I'm not running gpm.
Edit your XF86config-4 and try different mouse drivers out. I recommend
trying "MouseManPlusPS/2" first, and if that doesn't work, try,"ImPS/2",
then "MouseMan", then possibly "Logitech". Finally if all else fails,
try the "Auto" setting.
Also, you might want to check out the manual page for this.
man -a mouse
(hit q once and you'll get the XFree86 mouse manpage)
Please let me know which one works for you so I can change the default driver
to one that works properly.
for som reason I don't know, I didn't have a "XF86Config-4" (only the old "XF86Config". I recreated it with Xconfigurator. That file was unfortunately broken (missing font paths and errornous modelines) but it was there. After some tweaking, X runs like a charm. Even Xev gives normal output.
Oh, and btw, the best mouse protocol seems to be "PS/2" for my mouse.
Thank You very much. I had never looked into XF86Config-4 if You hadn't mentioned that file.
The very best regards,
Great, glad we got it working for ya!
