Mouse problem

Recommended Posts

Well I just installed Linux to try it out and I have a little issue. I like it all right but I was messing around with the mouse options to try and get my mouse wheel to work. I couldn''t get the wheel to work but that is not my problem. After I restarted the machine my mouse doesn''t work at all now. Is there a keyboard shortcut that will let me get into the mouse configuration window? If not I''m totally screwed.

I asume that you're trying to get your mouse to work in X? If so:
edit /etc/X11/XF86Config (as superuser) as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
# IMPS/2 -> scrollmouse
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
# /dev/mouse (symbolic) link to /dev/psaux (in case of ps/2)
/dev/input/mice (in case of USB)
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Button" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

restart your X & enjoy your mouse !

greetz,
