    Sluggish Mouse


    i just installed mandrake 8.2 and my mouse is having problems;

    if i move it really slowly it does not move the pointer on the screen, this makes it really sluggish to use as i have to move it around to get it moving.

    it works find under windows2000...

    any one have a similar problem or know how i can fix it?

    im guessing you did not set it up properly under linux

    what kind of mouse is it?

    2 button?3? wheel?

    PS/2, USB, Serial?

    Optical

    the more info the better. Also, paste the section of your

    /etc/X11/XF86Config file with "Input Device" here (use the quote/or code tags please, makes it easier to read)

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.

    Mouse sluggish

    Hello,
    I had just the same problem, no your mouse is setup correctly (i.e. it works!) its just not moving at the correct speed.
    in xterm or just a terminal type 'xset mouse 5 2'
    The first number is the treshold and the second is acceleration.
    I use 5 2 thats fine for me quite quick really.

    Thanks
    James

    Mouse

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the help, there still seems to be something wrong, perhaps I need to install a different driver or maybe there is something wrong with my PS/2 port.
