(EE) xf860OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/mouse [solved]

Postby percyt » Mon Jul 11, 2005 6:22 pm

(EE) Mouse1: cannot open input device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Mouse1"
No core pointer

Ran xorgconfig and went through everything mainly taking the defaults and get this.

Looked at the "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" file and everything looks ok apart from the mouse section.

Any ideas?

TIA

Darren

Sounds like it probably just isn't configured in your XF86Config-4 or equivalent file.

What does the ' Section "InputDevice" ' section for your mouse look like ?. You'll need one for each "input" devive you have connected, including your keyboard. With a coresponding entry in the ' Section "ServerLayout" ' section as well. Something like ...

Code: Select all
--------------------------------------------
Section "ServerLayout"
  Identifier   "Default Layout"
  Screen       "Default Screen"
  InputDevice  "Default Keyboard"
  InputDevice  "Configured Mouse"
  InputDevice  "Generic Mouse"
EndSection
--------------------------------------------------

# Original standard serial mouse, not using.

Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier   "Configured Mouse"
  Driver       "mouse"
  Option      "CorePointer"
  Option      "Device"           "/dev/ttyS0"
  Option      "Protocol"         "Microsoft"
  Option      "Emulate3Buttons"  "true"
  Option      "ZAxisMapping"     "4 5"
EndSection

# Cuurrent mouse, using a usb to PS/2 adapter plug.

Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier  "Generic Mouse"
  Driver       "mouse"

# For the PS/2 mouse at least, the option below is needed,
# not so for the "Configured Mouse" above.
  Option      "SendCoreEvents"   "true"
  Option      "CorePointer" 
  Option      "Device"           "/dev/psaux"

# Thur 19/05/2005: Taken from syslog boot detection
# input: ImExPS/2 Logitech Explorer Mouse on isa0060/serio1
# Option      "Protocol"         "ImExPS/2"
# The above didn't work.

  Option      "Protocol"         "ImPS/2"
  Option      "Emulate3Buttons"  "true"
  Option      "ZAxisMapping"     "4 5"
EndSection
-----------------------------------------------------------------


Not sure if there are any significant changes with the newer X servers from Xorg. If so they would only be minor.

It was /dev/psaux

I was just pressing return for the default of /dev/mouse

Cheers!
