Description of problem:
I currently have my mouse working and detected by Redhat 8.  But if I go to the 
mouse gui config area and leave the correct config alone and then click through 
as if im leaving the settings alone, my mouse becomes unusable afterwards.  My 
mouse is a Labtec Optical Wheelmouse, and I use the Microsoft Intellimouse ps/2 
option which works fine in all programs and in Redhat linux 8.0 if I do not 
enter the Mouse configuration program.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Graphical mouse config
2. Keep mouse settings the same and click through all default settings
3. Use mouse.

A few questions for you:

1) When you first run the program, what mouse is selected in the list?

2) Is the mouse misbehaving in X or in console or both?

3) Can you attach the contents of /etc/sysconfig/mouse and /etc/X11/XF86Config?

1) When you first run the program, what mouse is selected in the list?

Microsoft Intellimouse PS/2

2) Is the mouse misbehaving in X or in console or both?

What happens is that the Gnome stops working right and the mouse pattern becomes
unusable.  If I click on the redhat in the lower left start menu, it wont show
me the menu choices.  So I know it doesnt work in X.  But I dont know about
console.  How would I check this when it doesnt work under X?  

3) Can you attach the contents of /etc/sysconfig/mouse and /etc/X11/XF86Config?
I attached both of them before I enter mouseconfig.  If you want the ones after
as well, please advise.  

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2002-10-31 19:43:11 UTC
Ok, wait a minute.  Did you run redhat-config-mouse or mouseconfig?  

And yes, the contents of the files after running the program would be
interesting as well.

Comment 6 Adam Julius 2002-10-31 20:09:03 UTC
I ran the graphical mouse program from gnome, which is redhat-mouse-config 
correct?  I said mouseconfig in my previous post which was a typo.  Sorry about 
the confusion.  How would I manually get into mozilla without my mouse from a 
regular windows keyboard?  If I can figure that out, I can easily send over the 
attachments.  Thanks.  

Comment 7 Brent Fox 2002-10-31 20:17:50 UTC
Ok, I was confused there for a second.  I don't know how to navigate mozilla
without a mouse.  Maybe you could have an xterm open, run the tool, Alt-Tab back
into the terminal and make copies of the files to the /tmp directory, then run
the tool again to unbreak the mouse.  Then start mozilla and attach the files
you copied into /tmp?  Would that work?

Comment 8 Adam Julius 2002-11-01 16:03:28 UTC
I notice that if I click on close window in the mouse area, the mouse type 
works.  But if I click ok with the default mouse setting it messes it up.

Ill try what you said.

Any more info here?
