I need to see if the mouse can be probed. Try this: 1) Exit X Windows and log into a console. 2) As root, run 'python' and then run the following commands: 3) 'import kudzu' 4) 'list = kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_MOUSE, kudzu.BUS_UNSPEC, kudzu.PROBE_ALL)' 5) 'print list' Can you attach the output of that last statement to this report?

[root@chaos ~]# python Python 2.2.1 (#1, Aug 30 2002, 12:15:30) [GCC 3.2 20020822 (Red Hat Linux Rawhide 3.2-4)] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import kudzu >>> list = kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_MOUSE, kudzu.BUS_UNSPEC, kudzu.PROBE_ALL) >>> print list [Desc: LGI|8033 Driver: generic Device: ttyS0 ] >>> [root@chaos ~]#
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-02-11 23:51:47 UTC
Hmm, that's what I was afraid of. The mouse can be probed but it doesn't return anything really useful for the "Desc:" field. I could add an option for 'Logitech Cordless MouseMan Wheel (serial)', but there's no way for me to match up 'LGI|8033' with 'Logitech Cordless MouseMan Wheel (serial)'. What I was hoping was that it would return something useful like it does with USB mice. For example, on my machine: >>> import kudzu >>> l = kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_MOUSE, kudzu.BUS_UNSPEC, kudzu.PROBE_ALL) >>> l [Desc: Logitech Inc. Cordless Mouse Receiver Driver: mousedev Device: input/mice , Desc: Logitech Inc. iFeel Mouse Driver: mousedev Device: input/mice ] >>> I'm going to mark this as 'wontfix'. Also, my guess is that the number of people using Logitech Cordless MouseMan Wheel with the serial port is probably pretty small. Most people are using PS/2 or USB these days. In general, USB devices are much better at reporting information about themselves to the operating system, so our hardware detection capability will improve over time as more people move to USB devices.
Comment 4 Dr. Tilmann Bubeck 2003-02-12 06:08:12 UTC
Could you still please add the mouse to the list, so that a common user is able to select its mouse? Although you are not able to autodetect it, it is still very usefull if one finds its own mouse in the list to manually select it instead of trying various different mouse types without any knowledge. This should not do much harm if you offer one more mouse, doesn't it? Thanks! Till

I'll see what I can do.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-02-12 21:56:35 UTC
I've been told that we are past string freeze, so I can't add mice to this list because it might not get translated in time. I will defer this bug and revisit it after we release the version that we're currently working on.
