    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Assuming the baud rate, parity, etc are set correctly for the mouse, it should just work as long as you don't have some other mouse, like a USB device, connected to the system. Have you tried it yet?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Certainly, the settings are correctly, I have used the same settings on SLES10/11, and it can use nomorlly!

    I have tried the following method, and it cannot use yet.

    # In the "ServerLayout" section of xorg.conf. Add these two lines:
    Code:

    Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
    Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"

    # Specify the correct "Device" and "Protocol" for your mouse in xorg.conf.
    I have a scrolling mouse that uses "IntelliMOuse". Here's the section for my mouse in my xorg.conf:
    Code:

    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "mouse"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
    Option "Name" "PLUG AND PLAY SCROLLING MOUSE"
    Option "Protocol" "IntelliMOuse"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
    EndSection
