    FC4 and message mouse configuration

    Suddenly (before there was no problem) I started FC4 and I received this message:
    I can not start the X server (your graphical interface). It seems that the pointer (your mouse) is not setup correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose
    The mouse that I have got is USB Toshisba Mini Optical Mouse.i.e it is a mouse that stopped working suddnely?

    I googled and I found this
    https://www.redhat.com/archives/redh.../msg00155.html
    I followed the steps without any success.
    I can not find the proper answer for the below poped windows:
    Would you like me to try to run the mouse configuration program? Note that you will need the root password for this.
    When I clicked yes, another window poped up :
    Code:
    Mouse Selection
    Select the appropriate mouse for the system
    Generic - 2 Buttom Mouse (PS/2)
    Generic - 2 Buttom Mouse (USB)
    Generic - 2 Buttom Mouse (Serial)
    Generic - 3 Buttom Mouse (PS/2)
    Generic - 3 Buttom Mouse (USB)
    Generic - 3 Buttom Mouse (Serial)
    ' - - - - -- 
    '-- - - -- -
    '
    '
    but i could not find the name of the mouse that I have got!!!!!
    I tried couple selections, but all of them did not work
    I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf,,,,I found this :
    Code:
    Section       "Input Device"
    Identifier     "Mouse 0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttins" "yes"
    I checked dmesg |more ,,,,I found this:
    Code:
    mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice

    You likely won't. What if you try with "Generic - 2 buttom Mouse (USB)". Then enable 3 buttoms emulation.

    HTH ..

    Another idea. What if you change protocol section there with ImPS/2 (NOTE::The difference in upper and lower case letters) instead of IMPS/2 ? Mine is ImPS/2 and I also have generic optical mouse. You also need to restart mouse server (I don't know how you do that in FC so may be restart your box?) to take effect. Just restarting X won't work.
