    Mouse problem


    Hi folks,

    Gentoo_64
    gnome-light
    2 buttons, centre wheel mouse.

    Ran following steps to update the PC;
    emerge --sync
    emerge --update --deep --newuse world
    emerge --depclean
    revdep-rebuild
    etc-update
    env-update

    On running;
    emerge --update --deep --newuse world

    "java-config" conflicted with another package. Then I ran
    emerge --unmerge java-config

    to remove it.

    After completing all abovementioned steps, ran;
    emerge java-config

    to reinstall the package.

    Now the mouse wheel seems out of control. Turning the wheel it scrolls continously a while before coming to a stop. Dragging the right-slide bar with mouse pointer does not slide smoothly but jumping.

    Please advise where should I check to correct this problem. TIA

    Look for your /etc/X11/xorg.conf for mouse settings. They are device dependent though. Try changing the module you are using or the parameters set.

    Hi apoorv_khurasia,

    Look for your /etc/X11/xorg.conf for mouse settings.
    Followings are on xorg.conf concerning mouse;

    Code:
    .......
        InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    
    # **********************************************************************
    # Core Pointer's InputDevice section
    # **********************************************************************
    
    Section "InputDevice"
    
    # Identifier and driver
    
        Identifier	"Mouse1"
        Driver	"mouse"
    #   Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"	# PS/2 Mouse
    #   Option "Protocol"	 "PS/2"
        Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    #   Option "Protocol"    "Auto"
        Option "Device"      "/dev/input/mice"
        Option "Device"	 "/dev/psaux"
    
        Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5 6 7"
    
        Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
    
    EndSection
    I haven't made any change on it before and after "update"

    Try changing the module you are using or the parameters set.
    Sorry, I can't follow. Please advise what shall I change. TIA

    # cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep MOUSE
    Code:
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV=y
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX=y
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_SCREEN_X=1024
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_SCREEN_Y=768
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSE=y
    CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2=y
    # CONFIG_MOUSE_SERIAL is not set
    # CONFIG_MOUSE_VSXXXAA is not set
    # CONFIG_USB_IDMOUSE is not set
    I'm now running a wireless mouse with its receiver connected to USB port. I also tried running a USB mouse as well as plugging the same to PS/2 port via an adapter. Results are the same w/o any change/improvement
