Gnome + Gentoo + usb Optical Mouse
ok i just finished installing gentoo and gnome my only complaint is im haveing trouble getting my usb optical mouse to work in it. it works fine in windows xp and the livecd but in gentoo the light is not on and it dont work. ive gone through the tuts here on the forum regarding mice
but it doesnt help at all. im thinking i compiled the kernel wrong in the live cd which is why i posted it here instead of the hardware (if im wrong plz correct me) if someone here could tell me how to get my usb ports going in gentoo or if there is something else i need to do that would be most helpfull.
Protocol "PS/2" or "auto" or "IMPS/2" or "usb" or "IntelliMouse"
PS/2 means a ps2 mouse. Always try this first. You can also try setting it to "auto" which is most often supported. For USB-mice, you may want to set it to "IMPS/2" or "usb". For IntelliMice, use "IntelliMouse" For more options, check /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc/README.mouse
Device "/dev/mouse" or "dev/psaux" or ...
