    Re:mouse

    Thats the best way to do it on a laptop. Two mouses better than one.

    Re:mouse

    I had three setup for a bit, one optical mouse, one wireless (crappy) optical, and one trackball. I loved that config. The only drawback was different sensitivities for each device, and one OS setting. So my regular mouse was setup perfect, the wireless was Falsh Gordon, and the trackball was the tortise from bugs bunny.

    Re:mouse

    BIOS doesn't have this setting
    Tryied adding the following to XF86Config......
    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "synaptics"
    Identifier "Mouse[1]"
    Option "Buttons" "3"
    Option "Device" "dev/psaux"
    Option "Name" "Autodetection"
    Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    EndSection

    It didn't help.

    I can live with that, but I really hate touchpad :-(

    Re:mouse

    Sorry, forgot the starting / in
    Option "Device" "dev/psaux"\

    doesn't work with correct syntax as well

    Re:mouse

    I will have to dive into my old configs, but I think there is more than just that to get it to work.

    Re:mouse

    Okay, I lost my files that I used to use (dual head, 3 mice, etc), and am currently reresearching the changes, but one thing I remember I am gonna bring up.

    My current config (Xorg on Slack 10 with a 2.6.7 kernel), I have 2 USB mice, running with the following config :

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier"Mouse1"
    Driver"mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Simple Layout"
    Screen "Screen 1"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    EndSection
    Now, the one thing I am glad I figured out was to use the IMPS/2 Protocol. Again the two there are USB, so I guess they can share the driver. I dunno. Try changing to that in the meantime while I dig for the info. I do recall although it did take me a few days to originally locate the info, after comparing what I found to the manpages for XF86Config, I saw that it was pretty simple when I got down to it. Hopefully I can locate the stuff faster ;D

    Re:mouse

    Here is the section that I was talking about having the change:

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Layout 1"
    Screen "MGA 1"
    Screen "MGA 2" RightOf "MGA 1"
    InputDevice "Keyboard 1" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "Mouse 1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Mouse 2" "SendCoreEvents"
    Option "BlankTime" "5"
    EndSection
    Note the part that says :
    InputDevice "Mouse 1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Mouse 2" "SendCoreEvents"
    That is the needed part for utilizing tw or more mice.

    Re:mouse

    IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!
    BUT IN A BIT DIFFERENT WAY.........here is the story.
    I got tired of troubleshooting this ps2 thing so grabbed the usb mouse (optical), then I adjusted XF86Config according to the settings you have secified and it worked great - the only difference is that it worled for optical usb logitech mouse (I still doesn't work for ps2) I'm more thatn happy at this point - optical mouse works, the wheel n the mouse works as well, touchpad works, so I can happily live with that.
    Schotty, you're da man :-)
