Description of problem:
I first go into System Settings, and choose "Mouse". When I choose wheel mouse
(ps2), the cursor arrow will go to the top of the screen, and physically moving
the mouse does not have an effect other than to briefly pull up the right-click
menu. Physically disconnecting the mouse from its ps2 connector, and installing
another mouse seems to correct the problem, however, it does not allow using the
wheel (the wheel still does not work). Re-installing the original mouse results
in the problem mentioned above.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to System Settings
3.Choose "Generic", then "Wheel Mouse (PS/2)", then "Okay".
4.The mouse cursor does what is described above.
Actual Results: The mouse cursor does what I described above.
Expected Results: The mouse cursor should have remained stable, and allowed the
use of the wheel.
I only recently discovered the "fix" of changing mice. Previously, I was
constrained to reboot the system.
Can you tell me the exact model of the mouse that is causing the problem?
Also, I presume that there is no KVM involved. Certain KVMs can make the mouse
pointers go haywire.
Closing due to lack of information.
