Re: where is /dev/mouse???
I am a newcomer to this but have been through a successful install recently
and can offer the following as advice.
When you installed Debian you should have at some point been offered a list
of driver options. I have a PS2 mouse and when I went through i chose a PS/2
mouse driver and my mouse got setup on dev/psaux and the program politely
advised me this.
Your mouse is either a)
Not recognised by the system at all
On another device than the one the X configuration file thinks it is.
Something else is happening that I don't understand.
My recommendation is that you go back through the install setting up the
appropriate driver and then refer to it in the configuration program. I am a
very new person to this and others may offer better advice.
