Please help : Xwindows mouse problem
Posted on 1998-07-28
I have just installed Slackware linux, and XFree86. My
is that when I type startx, the fvwm starts up okay but
the mouse pointer is stuck to the top left of the screen.
I have configured it as a two-button ps/2 mouse, connected
to the auxiliary port. I have already tried to troubleshoot
by commenting out the mouse in gpm ( that just allowed the
server to start up ).I am not using a logitech mouse.
When I shut down the server ( ctrl-alt-bksp ) , I see a text
message when I get back to the command line prompt :
Warning:Unable to get status of mouse fd ( Invalid argument)
I don't know if this has anything to do with the erratic
behavior of my rat, but I hope it gives you enough of an
idea of my problem. I really am very stuck, so any help
would be appreciated.
