    Sluggish Mouse

    My mouse is really sluggish in RedHat 8. How can I configure it to work correctly? Maybe a driver I can download? It's a generic (no-name) optical mouse.

    Also...you've probably all heard this one before...but is there any way possible to get a Lucent WinModem working under RedHat 8?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Look in /etc/X11/XF86Config for the section for your mouse. See if it is using "Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2". If it isn't then change it, restart X and see if that helps.

    The mouse section will look similar to this.

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    EndSection

    The modem might work, as alastair mentioned you need to find out exactly what chipset it uses and look on linmodems.org to see if it may be supported.

    Post the output of /sbin/lspci -v

    One or more of the entries will be about your modem. Do you know if your modem is in an AMR slot?

    Re:Sluggish Mouse

    I changed that info for my mouse and now my mouse won't work. Can I edit /etc/X11/XF86Config from the command prompt so I can change it back?

    I found a driver through linmodems.org for my modem but I need to get my mouse fixed before I can try that driver!

    *Remember: I'm a newbie!!

    Thanks for everyone's help. I'll let you know if the modem driver works.

    Re:Sluggish Mouse

    Oops. Thats unusual for a newer mouse not to be M$ compatible. Especially an optical mouse. You did only change the line, Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"?

    # At the Grub boot loader screen, select a boot label and press "e" to edit it.
    # Use the arrow keys to select the line that starts with the word "kernel". Press "e" to edit it.
    # At the prompt, add the number 3 to the end of the line and press "enter".
    # Press the "b" key to boot the system into runlevel 3.

    Runlevel 3 boots to a text prompt. Login as root and either edit XF86Config or just run mouseconfig. Then just switch to your regular user and type: startx

    OK. I got my mouse working again. But I am a little confused about the modem driver that I downloaded. If anyone could help me get it installed, I would appreciate it greatly. If you email me (unclefluffy@shockwaveyouth.org), I will send you the .tar.gz file and maybe you can explain to me how I install the files. Thanx.
