Logitec Busmouse w/ Xfree

Logitec Busmouse w/ Xfree

Post by David Hass » Thu, 04 Aug 1994 01:45:01

        I have Linux 1.0.9 runnung on my 486 and I'm trying to get my Logitec
busmouse to work with Xfree 2.1.1.  I know there isn't a hardware problem
because it works fine when I boot DOS.  I have the IRQ set to five and didn't
install the non-X mouse stuff that may mess up the mouse.  Hase anyone else
had a similar problem and/or have helpful hints how to get it to work.  When
I startx, the message I get it that it can't find /dev/mouse and it's there and
linked to /dev/bmouselogitec.  I assume the install created it with the
correct major/minor numbers....  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You have to recompile the kernel with support for the mouse driver. I had to do this when
I installed Linux a week ago for the first time. I think what you have to do is go to the
directory /usr/src/linux or something similar and there you will find instructions on how
to do this. A good idea is to get the HOWTO files and read them before you attempt it.

Hope this helps.

1. Logitec Lost my Logitec Busmouse with PL12

My logitec busmouse has stopped working upon installation of Alpha-PL12 of
7 Aug.  Major 10, minor 0, /dev/mouse is linked to /dev/bmouselogitec.

I can still boot PL11 and it works fine with my X server, but with PL12, it
gets sucked down to the lower right-hand corner of the screen and stays there.
At least some Button presses still work -- just motion is hosed.

I believe this was just answered recently, but the news has expired from
my machine.

The mouse is a Logitech MouseMan Bus M/N: M-PD13-9MD.

Email welcome.
