: I am running linux 1.2.8 and have severe problems with my mouse.
: I have tried running gpm .98 and gpm 1.04 and what happens is this:
: When I move my mouse, just move it, no clicks, it cuts and pastes things
: onto the command line. I have also tried selection and it does the same thing.
: My mouse works fine under X. It is a microsoft compatible on ttyS0.
Take the sources of gpm-1.00 and compile it on your system. In the package
there is a program called "mouse-test" that will tell you which type your mouse
is. I have a microsoft compatible mouse too, and I always used "gpm -t ms" and
had the same problems as you, but the "mouse-test" program told me to use "gpm
-t mman" and everything works fine now :)
