Uhm, with evdev same result. Also worse if possible: the middle button
now does not work as it should in selecting parts of texts, the effect
is the same of a double-click with middle button, i.e. no selections at
At the same time I see that evdev does not work as it should with
synaptics (without xfree86-driver-synaptics): the device works
but the pointer is sadly frozen. Add to this that for misterious
reason I see the PC speaker within /proc/bus/input/devices
(and obsviously it does not work at all) and the picture is complete!
BTW, probably this is not the right ML for this kind of issues....
