    USB Mouse + touchpad problem on a Laptop/Notebook SUSE Linux 9.3

    Dear All,

    The only way to solve this problem is to reinstall or install SUSE 9.3 from scratch whit the USB mouse plugged. This way will make your SUSE Linux 9.3 detect your both Touchpad + the USB mouse and you can use both whenever you want to toggle between them.

    touchpad and usb mouse

    I had a similar problem. When I installed Suse 10.0 on a fujitsu-siemens laptop, the usb mouse did not work. I was happy to find the following solution:

    I had deactivated the touchpad in the BIOS, in the past; that was to avoid accidental mouse reactions that I caused unwillingly.

    It seems that Suse 10.0 expects the mouse during installation; I got some error like "grub cannot be installed".

    For a workaround, I activated the touchpad in the BIOS; then, the installation succeeded.

    Afterwards, I deactivated the touchpad again, and most of the system, including the usb mouse, is working without problems.

    I have installed/reinstalled Suse 10 tons of times by now, on my Inspiron 8600. Out of all those, my USB mice have worked fine in just a couple of cases. Once, I was able to use my USB mouse during the setup also.

    But now, the last time I reinstalled it, I connected two USB mice and they all worked fine, touchpad and BOTH usb mice. I could move the pointer with either of them. BUT, after I restarted, I have just one USB mouse connected in addition to the touchpad and it refuses to work.

    It is wonderfully displayed in the Hardware Information section of Yast but just dosen't work! Anybody know the reason why? Enabling/disabling the touchpad from the BIOS dosen't seem like a neat option. TIA
