Xorg Mouse Problems
Posted on 2005-04-12
Hi i've recently installed Gentoo and everything is up and running pretty well..
The one problem i'm having is that every now and then my mouse is having a little fit, and when I move it, it just jumps all over the place and clicks in rapid succession, and will continue for a few seconds. Sometimes it will just go away and other times, I have to press something like ALT-TAB or change to a different screen using CTRL-ALT-Fx. The latter seems to work the best.
I've got a USB Logitech Dual Optical mouse with a PS/2 converter on the end of it, I have a feeling it may be the converter but I can't seem to get the mouse to work just through USB, the light won't even come on.
Here is a message that seems to come up in dmesg directly after I have the problem:
psmouse.c: Explorer Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away
