Re: Mouse Not Working / Not Turned On

One thing that you could check is if the BIOS disable the USB ports. I've read about some users having problems because their BIOS would disable their network card when they were booting in Linux. Perhaps, it's a similar problem.

Re: Mouse Not Working / Not Turned On

Well, I mean, I know they work in Windows since I've booted to Windows more than once since the install of Arch (To use my USB printer and my USB thumb drive, actually). This stuff worked on Ubuntu; and USB was managed by... hotplug? I suppose Arch is that same.

Could I perhaps copy a file from Ubuntu and bring it to Arch, similar to what I did for Xorg?

Re: Mouse Not Working / Not Turned On

Arch doesn't use hotplug. It uses the newest udev which replaces hotplug.
For that reason, I doubt that copying a file would work. I can't even tell which file(s) it would need. I could be wrong though.

Re: Mouse Not Working / Not Turned On

Maybe we are looking at this the wrong way and you need some special module for your mobo.

try

hwdetect --show-usb

and compare the output with the modules that are loaded on your system.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Well, I took all the lines that outputted, and add them to the modules section of my rc.conf. It did something; I can charge my phone now! Which is acutally, a big step forward. I can charge my MP3 Player as well, however, it does not connect to the computer (as it had before in Ubuntu). In addition, I do not think my printer and scanner are being detected, however the CUPS tutorial does not make sence to me (problably since it doesn't have a printer to connect to...)

Re: Mouse Not Working / Not Turned On

Ok, so it seems your problem is with getting Udev to recognize your hardware. Unfortunatley i'm not that good with Udev, so others need to step in.

If you are using KDE 3.5.1 , there's 1 thing you could try for your MP3 player :

Check that Dbus and HAL are in your daemons line in rc.conf

goto Control Center, Desktop, Behaviour, tab Device Icons
enable device icons.
restart KDE/X.

This allowed me to see and mount my USB harddrive.

Re: Mouse Not Working / Not Turned On

Well, since I know it works with hotplug... should I remove udev and install hotplug?

You can't... anymore, unless you use a very old kernel.
