Post 3+ Months Ago

i have installed the CENTOS 5.

OS is working perfectly but the only problem is that the mouse cursor is sticked in the left side of screen.
it is moving up and down i mean vertical but not moving horizontal.
first i thought may be problem of installation but that is not because it happens again after re-installation.

can anyone please tell how to solve this freaky problem..??

It sounds like one of the gears in the mouse is bad. Try another mouse or move the ball by hand. I don't think the problem is in CentOS.

How did you check the mouse? Did you try it on another machine? I would also try another mouse on the machine in question.

You probably have the wrong mouse driver installed.

Verify the correct mouse driver for the one you use, and change your config to match.

Check for the following stanza in your /etc/x11/xorg.conf;

Code: [ Select ]
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver     "mouse"
    Option     "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option     "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option     "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection
  1. Section "InputDevice"
  2.     Identifier "Mouse0"
  3.     Driver     "mouse"
  4.     Option     "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
  5.     Option     "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
  6.     Option     "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
  7. EndSection

If you're sure that the mouse is good then, do what daemonguy suggested.

Is the mouse connected to a USB or PS2 port?

Get a PS2 adapter or a PS2 mouse and see what happens.

He replied to your suggestion in his post, Mar 30th at 1:35AM, after I had told him to try what you had said on Mar 29th at 3:40PM.

What do you mean it's not possible? Buy a PS2 mouse or buy an adapter. Don't be cheap all your life.

Uh... huh?

Considering your message was posted Mar 29th, unless he has a time machine I sincerely doubt that. :)

Additionally, my post initially asked for the stanza to be verified.

If it is USB, then he should check to ensure he has usb drivers operating. (usbd)

Also, telling him 'not to be cheap', is not helpful.

It's your machine that seems to be in another time zone. Your posts are marked 2 days in advance.

Secondly, it's hard to help a cheap person. If he can't buy a PS2 mouse or even a 3 dollar adapter to help pinpoint the problem, there isn't much anyone can do to be helpful.

I'm about ready to stop watching this thread. It's losing all sense of logic.

agreed.

the poster already stated the mouse works in windows.
its not like the usb port breaks whenever he boots into linux and a usb->ps2 converter will magically fix the problem.. >.<

We don't know that until he tries it. Trying a PS2 mouse or adapter is the next logical step in the process of elimination.

The USB mouse works on a USB port in Windows but it doesn't work on the USB port in Linux.

However, a PS2 mouse may work on his Linux box without having to reconfigure drivers. That is my point. It's very simple, easy to understand and easy to try. Not only is it easy to try but it's worth trying.

thats true.
but its less cost effective if he doesn't already possess a ps2 mouse or a usb->ps2 converter.

If he is totally broke, I can understand not purchasing the mouse or adapter. In that case, maybe he could borrow a PS@ mouse for the short time it would take to make the test.

Suppose we wait for the original poster to tell us if he is going to do that or not? We can do the same in the thread about the remote desktop and Fedora as well.

Actually, no. Everyone else's date was spot on. I imagine you had not changed your Ozzu control panel timezone difference after the upgrade.

There's quote a bit you can do to help someone who does not have the funds to purchase new hardware; *nix's work just fine with older hardware -- thus the draw for quite a few people.

I haven't been able to open the ozzu control panel for the last 2 days. Maybe you can solve that problem while we take a survey on who can afford a mouse or an adapter. It seems that the original poster hasn't returned to answer the question.

It's April 2nd, almost 7PM, here in NY. My PC says it's April 2nd and so does my cell phone. I don't know what the date is where you are.

It's not a wireless mouse is it? I've had a few problems with Linux and wireless mouses. Just throwing that out there if that's the case. Otherwise I'd just grab an old ps2 mouse and try that.
