Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 65501
RFE: Two mouses configuration problem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:45 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have this IR keyboard with a PS/2 mouse, and a Logitech First/Pilot wheel
Mouse attached to an USB plug.
During the 7.3 configuration Redhat detects one or the other but then the
Xserver just works with one of them.
After searching a lot I discovered that Xconfigurator is creating an
XF86Config file, instead of an XF86Config-4 one. I think the XF86Config file
only was created the very first time I installed Redhat 7.3, when I happened
to have an unique mouse. But the hardware detector kept changing this file
when I put the other mouse, instead of creating the -4 file that would accept
both of them.
I've got to format few times and reinstall the system (now with both of the
mouses attached from the begining, and the installation puts the USB mouse to
work and ignores the other.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RedHat 7.3 personal (the one that is on your ftp in iso cd images).
Try to install it.
Steps to Reproduce:
The installation should incorporate an enter for any mouse it can find in the
XF86config-4 file and then choose one of them as CorePointer and the other as
I think it is quite important, as Laptop users always want two pointers, and
at the same time there is everytime more people that have IR keyboards to
remotely control the system on their living room or so.
Reassigned to new X config tool.
redhat-config-xfree86 should do this.
