Cannot set mouse to left-handed
Last modified: 2009-05-11 20:57:15 EDT
Description of problem: In preferences, Lef-Handed mouse button selected.
If KVM (Key,Vid,Mouse) switched to other box, cursor frozen on screen when this box returned to. Keyboard fine, Screen fine (USB based kvm)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System > prefrences > mouse > Left-Handed
Actual results: No left-hand
Expected results: left-hand
Additional info: Unsure if the freeze was relevant.
I can set my mouse to be left-handed successfully in control-center-2.26.0-6.fc11.x86_64. Does an update fix the problem for you?
To test, I am hitting the "Close" button in the gnome-mouse-preferences window and clicking on a desktop icon with the left mouse button and seeing a context menu.
If you are still experiencing the problem, what make and model of mouse do you have? Including the output of "lsusb" might help diagnose the problem. Do "yum install usbutils" to install this program, if you need it. You might also check /var/log/messages and ~/.xsession-errors to see if anything helpful is printed there.
forgot this one :(
Yeah, it is fixed (32bit).
