    No mouse in x


    Hi all
    I'm running Slackware 10.1 on my laptop and my USB mouse
    seems to be unindentified by the system.

    Here is my relevant /etc/X11/xorg.conf part:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
          Identifier  "Mouse1"
          Driver      "mouse"
          Option      "Protocol"  "Auto"
          Option      "Device"    "/dev/mouse"
    EndSection
    any ideas how to make my USB mouse work?

    try running mouseconfig as root and then select usb as your mouse, this should sort it out
