I'm new to this list so please forgive me if I do something out of
I've been using Debian Linux since around September and have had
little trouble using the console applications. The computer I'm using
is a Motorola StarMax 3000/160 - a macintosh clone that is a few years
old. It runs very well.
Over the past month or so I've made a few attempts to get X up and
running and today I had the most success although it is not in a
The mouse and the keyboard are both ADB keyboards.
Summary of Problems:
KEYBOARD: a) right 'function' keys (option, meta, control) do not work.
b) 'a' key does not work.
MOUSE: This works in that it moves the pointer on the screen, but
it also sends a lot of data that the system understands as
characters. Thus, when I move the mouse, the terminal begins
to fill up with un-typed characters ("~~~~6~", etc).
I have had the most success with the keyboard and mouse with the
following in my XF86Config File:
Option "Protocol" "Standard"
Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
Option "XkbModel" "macintosh_old"
Option "XkbRules" "macintosh"
Option "Protocol" "BusMouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/adbmouse"
I also put:
into /etc/quik.conf which tells the kernel the video card type and to
use F11 and F12 as ADB Mouse Buttons 2 and 3, respectivly.
Does anyone know how to remedy this problem or the next step I should
investiage to remedy it?
Thank you, Elizabeth
