mouse suddenly behaving strangely
My mouse just started behaving strangely, although I haven't done
anything, to the best of my knowledge. Hopefully somebody will have an
idea what to try!
I was using my system (woody) as I have for the past many months when
the mouse suddenly froze. It's a Logitech cordless M-RN66, plugged in
via the PS/2 port. I hadn't changed anything immediately prior to the
freeze, for that matter I haven't changed any system level things for
quite a while.
I rebooted into Windows 2000 and the mouse was frozen there too. I
switched to another mouse (corded PS/2 Logitech M-CAA43), pushing the
connector in and out a few times to clean it. I booted into Windows
again and it appeared to work. I rebooted into Debian and now have
weird behaviour. The pointer starts in the centre of the screen but as
soon as I start moving the mouse around it jumps to the bottom left. If
I move the mouse up and right, the pointer tracks up and right for a few
inches and then jumps back to the bottom left corner again.
Feels like a hardware problem to me - has anybody seen these symptoms
