my mouse goes crazy

In order to start the X-Windows, I edited /etc/devfsd.conf and put the lines espicifacted in the InstallGuide. Well, Xfce runs ok, the cursor moves ok, but the buttons don´t work propertly, and I proved all the drivers  for my Genius Optical Netscroll (with xf86cfg). What is the problem?

One thing: my xfree86 package was corrupt, and I force to install it. May be cause of this?

And for last: the /dev directory is created ever time that linux starts? Because I create my simlink /dev/misc/psaux --> /dev/mouse, but it disappears.




PD: apologizes for my english.

Re: my mouse goes crazy

Hi Rock Lee.

This is probably a mouse driver misconfiguration since the mouse itself does appear, but operates incorrectly.  If this is the case, you'll need to change the mouse driver specification in /etc/X11/XF86Config.   As a rule, when I have similar problems (usually between PS2 and IMPS2 drivers), this resolves the problem.

Regards,

Win

Re: my mouse goes crazy

XFree86 4.x supports wheel mice, however many toolkits and programs do not yet support them. Gtk+/Gnome and Qt/KDE support wheel mice.

   1. As root, edit your XFree86 config file.
   2. In the mouse section, make sure your protocol is set up correctly. Here are some (not all) of the possible values:"ImPS/2","ExplorerPS/2". Add the following lines.
      Option"ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
      Option"Buttons" "5"

    That's all there is to it.

PS: Never needed to change an devfsd.conf entry to have XFree86 running. And I use a laptop that has ps/2, serial, usb and touchpad mouse, whatever you connect or use.

PSS: devfsd creates /dev/... dynamicly, yes. If you don't want that, you should not use devfsd, because this is what it was meant to do!
