Delay before mouse responds
I have a mandrake linux 10.0 box setup as a kiosk. X starts on bootup, icewm is started, the user is logged in, and opera starts automatically.
But after a fresh boot, the mouse cursor doesn't respond right away. You have to jiggle the mouse around for about 5 seconds before the cursor responds. It's as if the OS or X doesn't recognize the mouse until it moves.
The input device section of XFree86Config file is:
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
and this line is in the ServerLayout section
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
The mouse is a logitech 3 button optical wheel mouse on the USB port.
How do I eliminate this delay? It makes people think the machine is broken and they walk away.
