    synaptics Touchpad & USB mouse together in slack 10


    recently installed the new Slack 10 & as all know it comes with the new X.org. the configuration below i sued is not Working with my laptop. the touchpad works Fine but when i Plug in my USB mouse ,the Light glows but it doesn't function..
    can some one Suggest me how to make it Work with the New X

    this worked for me earlier Fine in the xfree86:

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "UsbMouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection

    then make an entry to the serverlayout

    InputDevice "UsbMouse" "AlwaysCore"

    that is exactly how mine looks and my usb mouse works. i changed it so my usb mouse would work and not my touchpad. but just give it some time of playing around with you will figure it out. it took me about a hour of playing to get my usb mouse working. i kept switching between kde and gnome and it would finally work in gnome but not kde and now it works fine in flux.
