Re: mouse for x


That worked. I wonder why the ADB mouse is not part of the config. Maybe someone can fix that.

I'm running X on a Q840av. Here is an excerpt from my XF86Config-4 file. I'm using /dev/adbmouse and it works well for me. The second and third mouse buttons are mapped to the right alt/option and control keys respectively. I'm still without key repeat in X which has me completely baffled. As you can see below I've been playing with various different things in the keyboard section, and have some experiments commented out, but still have no luck getting autorepeat to work. But I do have a mouse. I'd be very interested in your experience with key repeat once you get X up and running. Good luck.
