Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8659
Mouse Systems PS/2 3 button mouse doesn't work in X
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
I have a Mouse Systems PS/2 3 button mouse on my system. I have installed
6.1. The mouse seems to work fine when I am not in X. Windows 95/98/NT
also have no problem with this mouse.
What happens is whenever I move the mouse it JUMPS to the lower left
corner of the screen. This is a real problem.
Under Redhat Linux 5.2 I was able to modify a .c file (name escapes me)
and rebuild the kernel. Something to do with an initialization or
something. Under 6.1 I can't seem to find the .c file that I changed
in 5.2. Maybe this is addressed differently in 6.1.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
what is your mouse type set to in /etc/X11/XF86Config? Does the MouseSystems
mouse speak its own protocol or does it emulate the Microsoft IntelliMouse
closed due to lack of additional feedback. Please reopen if you have more
information to provide.
