    Unhappy Problems with my pointer!


    Hello, I am going crazy trying to fix this problem and I don't know where to go in Linux. My mouse, for some reason, if I hover over anything with the pointer, it acts as if I clicked there. This makes everything very difficult. And makes a mess of things! I have a USB mouse, a Logitech, I don't know if the mouse itself matters because this happens if I move the pointer with the touchpad as well. Please please help! Let me know what other info you would need!


    OS is Linux 2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop i686
    system is openSUSE 11.2 (i586)
    KDE is 4.3.1 (KDE 4.3.1) "release 6".
    Computer: Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Laptop
    Firefox 3.5.7.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Different Symptom, Same File Setup

    I also have xorg.conf.install but NOT xorg.conf. I am using OpenSUSE, and my pad doesn't work at all. Should I have an xorg.conf in addition to the xorg.conf.install?

    I don't know KDE but in openSUSE I would look in YAST or Control Center for the mouse applet and see if things like focus following pointer is set, I'm not sure what it would actually be called
