My PS2 mouse won't work in my new installation of Mandrake 9.
Posted on 2004-04-21
I installed Mandrake Linux 9 for the first time ever last night. I am a newbie, remember this!
Unfortunately my mouse didn't work during the installation program only my keyboard (both are wireless). I tried to select my mouse but accidentally selected USB rather than PS2 forgetting I was on my older machine, and now I can't get it to work with the aid of the keyboard.
I'm a windows user, and though I can seemingly access my control panel equivalent and configurations etc., it provides me with only the option to change the cursor and mouse movement etc, not to remove the mouse and add/detect a different one.
Sorry to be such a dimwit, but once i get this simple problem fixed I can start to explore Linux properly and get something out of the experience.
Hope you can help )
My keyboard still works fine, and the keyboard/mouse combo is a Genius Wireless Twintouch+/Keyboard.
