Description Chris Runge 1999-09-08 14:47:28 UTC
I select my mouse type--Intellimouse (PS/2)--under the new
GTK+ installer.  This is correct in the /etc/sysconfig/mouse
file and gpm works properly.  However, it is not correct in
the /etc/X11/XF86Config file--it is listed as PS/2 instead
of IMPS/2--resulting in wholly erratic mouse movement under

Duplicated with an Intellimouse in our lab.
