    Keyboard/trackball issues - Please help!!


    Hi Guys

    i'm new to linux and i'm already having trouble with a special keyboard im trying to use.

    Its a keyboard with a built in trackball.

    Now the weird thing is that it works on one fedore 9 install i have - but only the keyboard works on another install (also fedore 9).

    The kernels are different though.

    2.6.25.11-97 fc9.i686 - pc that works

    2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686 - pc that doesn't work

    Anyone have any ideas on what i need to do to get it working (as its extremely urgent that i do :P)

    i also have lsusb logs and system logs (when i plugged and unplugged it)

    Cheers

    Thanks you!

    Have a look in the files /etc/X11/xorg.conf on each installation and see if there's any obvious differences for the input devices.

    Unless the xorg.conf files are set up on the fly you should see something different.
