    Mouse is crazy after X window starts.


    I run a Debian 3.0 (kernel 2.4.1 on my pretty old HP Pavilion 8240
    (233Mhz, 32M memory). I used
    "XFree86 -configure" and "XFree86 -xf86config /root/XF86Config.new"
    made a few changes in config file I thought was appropriate. and
    copy it back to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.

    I installed gpm and after booting up, the gpm is running as
    "/usr/sbin/gpm -m /dev/psaux -t autops2 -Rms3"
    which makes a block cursor which is controlled by mouse quite well
    under virtual console mode. (I can mark and paste using mouse)

    But after I startx, I got GUI up running, but the cursor became unstable,
    frequently jumping to the border of the screen, and the buttons don't
    work properly either. No matter what display manager is used, (gdm,
    xdm and twm) similar results.

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    turning off/uninstalling gpm is the only solution ive found with this problem.

    I've seen this happen on quite a few boxes (also Debian) at work where gpm has been running and then the mouse in X starts randomly jumping and thinking of its own accord.

    I found the solution to this problem. Thanks to the Linux developers and fans on the internet.

    The solution is as simple as this:

    edit /etc/gpm.conf file, make/change lines like these:

    repeat_type=ms3
    device=/dev/psaux
    type=ps2

    then edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, make/change fieids under Mouse section like these:

    Option "Protocol" "IntelliMouse"
    Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata".

    It works just great!

    For details, goto
