Default 8.04 and KVM switch

Hi,

I have a problem when hooked up to kvm (ps/2) switch. after switching
out and back in mouse wheel stops working.
My guess is the driver, after switching out, falls back into "generic"

Any hints how to make it keep the original settings?

TIA

I'm assuming that it's the windows based side of things that have the
problem, at least that's what i experienced, my Mint (Ubuntu based) was
fine, but after a switch back and forth my WinXP lost the use of the
scroll wheel. The solution was to unload the Mousespecific driver SW and
let Windows handle things, after that - no prob.

Unfortunately no. The wheel stops working in Ubuntu, works fine in
windoze...

Check your mouse section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and see if it is only
configured for a generic mouse. Here is the section from one of my machines:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

On a fresh hardy install using the automagical Xorg 7.3 it only shows:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"

Is it a Belkin KVM? If so, then give up now. Or start searching the
Fedora mailing list archives, circa FC3 and FC4 if you want to get
frustrated before you decide to ditch Belkin.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
