    usb mouse and fedora 3


    Hello there

    I have just re-installed fedora 3 in order to be able to use my usb mouse on my laptop. The mouse does not work all the time and plugging/unplugging does not seem to solve the proble m in most cases. Apart from that I have a usb adsl modem and I am not even contemplating trying to get the two of them to work together as it seems impossible.

    Please help!!!

    how do you have your xorg.conf file setup, it may just be a problem there or with hotplugging

    gpm

    try gpm on the console. If that doesnt work then there will be some sort of issue.

    lsusb -vvv to see if it has detected the mouse if not then look into the kernel modules. Perhapse the usb interface isnt detecting.

    there is lots to look for.. its just a matter of making sure the OS sees the device first.

    From there you can work up.
