At least for me, it doesn't work. w/ an Apple BT mouse, I don't have a nice symlink created for me ever. Join our community today! by alloydog » Tue Dec 20, 2005 1:48 pm df -T /dev returns: Filesystem - Type - 1K-blocks - Used 0 Available 0 Use% 0 Mounted on /dev modprobe -v mousedev

I just upgraded to hardy, and my mouse no longer works.

Evdev recognizes it properly, whereas "mouse" driver thinks it's the same as middle button.

It seems evdev support is broken in the current X.org: Even if I get my mouse working with evdev, it is also recognized by the xorg-input infrastructure, so all events are specifically, it does not detect wheel left and wheel right, secondary wheel scroll up or down, and secondary wheel click. Is it possible to prevent X from grabbing input devices which are already in use? I've got a few mice in a box in my loft/garage ( 3 buttons > included) and I'm re-installing everything.

Right now, it seems a bit limited and the lack of documentation (man evdev is outdated, for example) is not exactly helping. http://scriptkeeper.net/cannot-open/cannot-open-exchanger-control-device-16-device-busy.html laga (laga) wrote on 2008-03-07: #13 I was also caught by this "bug" and i managed to make it work by copying the .fdi to /etc/hal/fdi/policy and changing the "Driver "evdev"" I found a Gentoo HOWTO for udev, but for this PC some of the commands, such as emerge are not recognised. The cost of switching to electric cars?

Then you should report a separate bug because of course they should work. You may also add Option "AutoEnableDevices" "no" but it doesn't change anything. 2) When the second server kicks in it fails to configure its keyboard and mouse even though the configuration It's a bit annoying not to be able to login in kdm because they keyboard is dead. http://scriptkeeper.net/cannot-open/vxvm-vxiod-error-v-5-1-1526-cannot-open-vol-iod-device-no-such-device-or-address.html Is there a work around?

Pär Lindfors (paran) wrote on 2008-03-28: #24 This bug is caused by an configuration change that is undocumented, the man page contains options that are no longer valid. I could start vmware-toolbox. The error '(EE) PreInit returned NULL for "xxxx"' can be caused by not using the assigned event names or by using symlinks (e.g. /dev/input/by-path/). --- mike t. ----- Original Message ----

Wouldn't it be better to be able to trust Qt and not have to do a workaround? –ArjunShankar Jul 12 '12 at 13:00 I'll try a different approach then

In my case, that's fine because it's just my TV on an additional VGA card. alloydog LXF regular Posts: 600Joined: Thu Apr 07, 2005 7:32 pm Top RE: /dev/mouse not found after kernel update. I had multiseat working in Gutsy too. Things can only break if something else is used. -- Timo Aaltonen

Hope You persevere with Linux, and dont get disheartened when things wont work out of the box.
