    complete noob mouse problems Mandrake 9.1


    I have a labtec ps/2 mouse and I'm having a problem and I havn't heard of anyone else having this prob. My mouse works fine unless I move it really slowly, and then it just does not move at all. This is really annoying when I'm trying to click on small buttons and things that require a certain precision. Anyone else heard of this kind of problem or know how I may beable to fix it?

    I used to have that same problem, but I found out that the mouse's wheel's sensors get clogged with dust and dirt, and it won't move right. Just open up your mouse and clean off the dust with a toothpick. That did it for me

    no, it works fine in windows xp (which I'm running now) so it can't be because of that.

    use the configuration tool for your mouse if your distobution has one and set the threshold lower or something. try all the setting till it works;)
