Description of problem:
Sometimes after starting X the mouse seem very slow (low acceleration).
Reloading the usb modules (or rebooting) seems to fix it, so I don't
really know if this is a X or kernel problem. Anyway it happens with X
Steps to Reproduce:
2. move the mouse fast
Actual Results: The mouse sometimes seems to have low acceleration.
Expected Results: The mouse should move fast always.
I have a usb microsoft intellimouse optical and I'm using usb-uhci.o.
Are you using GNOME or KDE? Check your mouse settings in either one's
control panel. You can change the mouse acceleration. If this doesn't help
at all, I believe it would be a kernel problem as X gets USB events from the
Arjan, have you heard anything about such USB problems? I'm USB-less myself..
Pete: did you see this ever before ?
It doesn't matter the window manager. It happens both with Gnome and KDE as
well as with just XFree86 without any window manager. And it's apparently
random, at least I haven't been able to reproduce it.
No, I did not see it before. Never heard of it either.
It is unlikely that something is wrong with X,
but it may be a good idea to do "xset q" before
and after the problem happens.
It would be helpful if the requestor tried to
correlate the problem with USB bus renumeration
by reading "dmesg | tail -50" periodically.
If xset q result does not float, I am willing take the bug,
but I am afraid it will be hard to crack. I need something
Closing bug since it is unlikely to be an X bug, and there is no way
to debug this without reproduceability or more information.
