gpm and X
I've run into a rather strange problem with gpm and X. I can tell X to
use /dev/gpmdata, and the mouse responds fine except for the middle mouse
button. In X, the middle mouse button appears to cut out after pressed,
even if I hold it down. For example, when I press ctrl and the middle
mouse button in an xterm, I can see the menu, but when I move the mouse,
the menu disappears. I can make the mouse work correctly in X by
disability gpm and telling X to use /dev/ttyS0 at it's device. In the gpm
man page, these is this line:
..or the single-open limitation is removed from the kernel
Would this solve the problem and allow X to use /dev/ttyS0 at the same
time gpm is? If so, how do I do this? If not, is there an option to send
to gpm to fix the problem in X? Tia.
