Thread: configuring usb mouse in Debian Woody

    configuring usb mouse in Debian Woody

    I have been unable to get my usb intellimouse configured in woody and have several questions:

    1) Does the kernel installed by default (2.2.20 I think) support USB?

    2)If so, how do I determine which device file (i.e. /dev/input/mouse) it is linked to?

    When I set up Debian the original section was as follows:

    Section "Input Device"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" (I think)
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

    The error reported was that there was "no such device as /dev/input/mice" and "no core pointer registered"

    I since have tried changing the /dev name to all the examples I have been able to find on the net and still get the same error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    mkdir /dev/input
    mknod /dev/input/mice c 13 63

    make sure you have the correct stuff in the kernel and voila !

    You will need :
    Input Core support -> Mouse support

    USB -> Host controller driver
    USB -> HID Mouse

    hello,
    i used gpm and the X picked up its config - else it was just like Mr. LoveChild said.

    Thanks for the help! I will try these suggestions out later tonight and let you all know how it goes. My wife is stealing my computer right now to write a paper.

    Ok, this is finally my first post from Woody.
    I finally had time to fix the mouse issue and get my DSL running.
    Thanks to Lovechild and pbharris for the help.
