Mouse doesn't work in X??
X Windows Posted by Dom on Tuesday November 27, @07:29PM
from the dept.
My mouse doesn't work in KDE or Gnome enlightment. It works fine in the console with /dev/sysmouse. I set it to that in my XF86config. When I startx the mouse is there till I moe it. Than when I move it it freaks to the top right hand corner and is gone. When I look at the dump the only thing weird is (II) I810(0) Silken Mouse enabled. Please help. I have an Intel 815 chipset MB FreeBSD 4.4 X Server 4.1

    Figured it out. It sems the /usr/X11R6/xf86config script ask for a mouse protocol when it doesn't need one. so ubder options I changed it to "auto" and everything worked out fine. Thanks anyway

    If you are running XFree86 version 4.x, I think I may know what the problem is. Are you using X ver. 4.x?

      Yup, I was using X4.1 found out that I had the mouse protocol setup wrong. Instead of PS2 I put in auto and it worked out fine. I ran /stand/sysinstall which configured my mouse settings and saved them in /dev/sysmouse. Than I ran /usr/X11R6/xf86config and I was asked to input mouse protocol again. So I had to choose ps2. Started x and it freaked. So I read about the fix on comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc. and they suggested trying auto. That worked fine. So I edited my /etc/X11/XF86Config and boom that did it. Thanks all!

        Just a translation : Pour resoudre le probleme, editez le fichier XF86Config. Section "Pointer" changer Protocol "auto". Redemarrez le X. Ca marche. Thanks for the answer.

    I had the same problem, but all i did was disable the console mouse daemon and pointed my XF86Config file to use /dev/psm0.
