It's a nice mouse, but Fedora 15 doesn't recognize it. In /proc/bus/input/devices, I see a "PS/2 Generic Mouse". I've tried booting into Fedora with the USB device still plugged in, and it hangs.

I found instructions that might work for Ubuntu, but they involve editing a file I just don't have in Fedora (/etc/X11/xorg.conf).

  • @sr_: I looked for any sort of xorg.conf. There's stuff in /etc/X11, but not xorg.conf, and doing a find . -name \*org.conf from the root directory didn't get anything. Oct 29, 2011 at 13:02

    @DavidThornley Follow the link that sr_ gave you: it explains how to create the file. X will run with sensible defaults if the file is absent, but “exotic” hardware may require the file to be present, with “exotic” settings. Oct 29, 2011 at 15:30
  • You should look at the output of dmesg and lsusb -v Oct 29, 2011 at 16:04
  • USB mice don't show up as PS/2 mice. Womething is very wrong there.
