    MS IntelliMouse problem


    Greetz everyone
    I have the Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer USB mouse... and installed Slack 10.1 with Kernel 2.4.31

    problem is that mouse moves up and down only...

    tryed some xorg.conf things that i found on the web, but neither worked...:\

    any solution? (Kernel 2.6.x maybe?)

    Kernel won't make any difference. The only thing that occurs to me is the protocol in your X conf file.
    Check out this page for a lot of mouse configuration info.

    I am using a logitech wireless mouse on my slackware and it works fine. Here is what I did, I don't know if this made a difference it is just what I did and it worked. It was already set up with a wired keyboard and mouse and then I installed the wireless and it worked with no extra configs.
    Try that and let me know
    make sense?

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Check out seeing if you need to put the testing kernel on your computer. This seemed to help so I could use the PCMCIA MiniHD in Slackware Linux.
