Hullo, been setting up Sarge on a boxen so that my father can 'one day' look into all this Linux thingamajig. I ran across a bit of a problem when setting up his periphery: He's using the 'Wireless Optical Desktop' by Microsoft, i.e. a combi- nation set of ubersleek keyboard and mouse with a shitload of useless functions. The keyboard itself runs quite finely when using the generic USB key- board drivers, but I can't seem to get the damn mouse working. I al- ready tried the Magic Hardware Problem Solver[tm] aka Knoppix, but to no use; it didn't recognize the mouse. I can't see the mouse via ls- usb, merely the keyboard. Both are using the same receiver for their wirelessness, and that is where I think the whole problem is. Has anyone got a clue about what ingredientes I need to have for the appropriate satanic ritual, or at least a tip regarding how I am sup- posed to get the USB mouse driver to listen to the mouse movements on the receiver? -- Mister Teatime had a truly brilliant mind, but it was brilliant like a frac- tured mirror, all marvellous facets and rainbows but, ultimately, also some- thing that was broken. - Terry Pratchett in `Hogfather'
