Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-19 11:14:27 EDT
Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

I had a similar problem but I have taken a different take to get it working. I have added a mouse to my xorg.conf file. 

The xorg.conf now looks like this (with extra line/section commented):

# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        # Added next line to get mouse working
        InputDevice    "USBMouse" "CorePointer"

Section "InputDevice"
# keyboard added by rhpxl
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "gb"

# Added section to get mouse working
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier "USBMouse"
	Driver "mouse"
	Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "intel"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24


I hope this helps

I have the same problem with a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000.
Should i report another bug report or add information here?
Comment 4 Volker Potworowski 2008-09-20 05:06:43 EDT

Please tell me if you need more of the log files. But Xorg.2.log was last modified, may 13. So I guess it's not useful.

I had the same problem with a Logitech DiNovo Edge. The change to the xorg.conf fixed it.

Comment 14 David 2008-09-20 06:58:55 EDT
Logitech USB wireless mouse and keyboard same issue.

Roll back to:

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage xorg-x11-drv-evdev-1.99.1-0.5.fc9.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage xorg-x11-server-Xorg-
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage xorg-x11-server-common-

and its fine.

The latest build on koji:


Does NOT fix this :(
