Default Enabling Optical Mouse

Hello all,

    Because of a faulty mouse, I have to change it to an optical one. Could anyone tell me how to re-install it to RHL 9, not from scratch? Many thanks


Best regards

Hi all,

I've searched through my LN distro but could't find the xorg.conf. I've listed the mouse section of the XF86 file instead to enable an optical mouse (wired). Anything still missing? Many thanks!

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "DevInputMice"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection


Best regards

I have a usb microsoft optical mouse here. It works with the following in my xorg.conf (this is on debian etch)

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier    "Configured Mouse"
    Driver        "mouse"
    Option        "CorePointer"
    Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/mice"
    Option        "Protocol"        "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option        "Emulate3Buttons"    "true"
EndSection
Cheers
