It is only a problem right after starting X, then once it's working properly at the CL I can switch back and forth between X and the CL with no more problems.Does this help: http://bugs.debian.org/233933 also http://dman13.dyndns.org/~dman/config_docs/gpm-X/node3.htmlThanks for the pointers Chris, these are about using /dev/gpmdata whichI wasn't doing and I tried it the suggested way and now don't have to restart gpm when switching from X to the CLI but the mouse buttons areno longer swapped in X. I'll either have to figure out how to do that in X or have to relearn the mouse button to function map. Appreciate your help though. Mike
In the file /etc/gpm.conf, add or modify the append line this way: append='-B 321' This swaps the mouse buttons when in a console using gpm directly.I also had to change my GUI mouse settings, swapping the buttons there as well.
