Hi all,

I'm having a small problem with running my mouse on Slackware Linux.

Here's what happened.

I installed Slackware with no problem. The mouse had no problem then. By the way, the mouse is a Logitech USB Optical Wheel Mouse. I got into KDE and it worked fine. But my screen resolution was off, so I decided to go into xf86config and fix the problem. That's when I messed up with the mouse but my screen resolution is doing great now. It's out of control! It jumps to verious places and sometimes pulls up the button menus.

This is what my Xf86config file has for the mouse section

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Device "/dev/mouse"
Protocol "PS/2"
Emulate3Buttons "on"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone.
