Re: Logitech optical mouse?
Sorry, I don't have that mouse, but here's a tip. Get the mouse working
properly in the text console first. Once you have that working, tackle X.
1) in /etc/gpm.conf set
(If you are woody. See more with gpm -t help|less)
But if you use autops2 here then what do you put for the "Protocol"
value in the XF86Config-4 file? It seems you have to give a specific
protocol there and do not have the option of letting it autodetect.
2) in /etc/X11/XF86Config
Identifier "Logitech MouseMan Wheel"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
# Note: Protocol must match the 'type' set to gpm
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Also, I just changed my settings to exactly what dman suggested and now
the mouse seems more erratic. It seems to occasionally select text when
I haven't pressed any buttons and jump to the bottom left corner of the
screen if I move it rapidly.
BTW: The mouse I have is a Logitech MouseMan Dual Optical. I would be
gratefull if someone could post a copy of their gpm.conf and
XF86Config-4 files for this mouse.
dman has two types listed in gpm.conf above; you only need one. imps2 is
the usual standard ps2-type mouse with a wheel. I've never had success
with autops2, but then I've never tried very hard.
He also has the device set to point to what I believe is the USB port.
If it's a standard ps-2 port mouse, that should probably be /dev/psaux.
His XF86Config file looks good.
