Input over /dev/mouse

Post by The Darte » Wed, 19 Nov 1997 04:00:00



Hi!

Who can me give information about Input from keyboard to
/dev/mouse.

E.g. Code-Sequence to move the cursor.
                (echo "*n" > /dev/mouse   <-- one from the Howtos)

Please, send me the information directly to my mailbox.

TNX

The *n code is to _reset_ the mouse (which may indeed move the cursor!)

If you are using X, check your window manager's man page for keyboard
control of the cursor.  To emulate the mouse, start by looking at the
source code for something like gpm to see how it works.

1. /dev/input/mice problem with 2.4.19-pre9 & 10

hey

I saved the old config from 2.4.18 (with make menuconfig) and loaded it
with kernel 2.4.19-pre9 and pre10. everything compiles etc, the kernel
boots, but my usb-mouse is not working any more ...

All modules were loaded and none gave any error.

When I move my mouse while catting /dev/input/mice, nothing appears ...

Other USB-device work...

michael

btw: sry for this n00b-bugreport :) plz tell me if you need any more
information
