For a serial mouse, make sure the mouse device is pointing to the correct actual device. If your mouse is plugged in to the "com 1" port, that's equivalent to /dev/ttyS0. Note that that is a CAPITAL S followed by a zero. "com 2" would be /dev/ttyS1, etc. Check like this:Code:
$ ls -l /dev/mouse lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Aug 20 21:57 /dev/mouse -> /dev/ttyS0 $Code:
$ ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/mouse
That next thing is to make sure your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is correct. About half-way into the file, you should see something like this:Code:
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "Microsoft" Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0" EndSectionCode:
