Mouse randomly jumps to the center of the screen.

Postby Interverse on Sat Jan 03, 2009 12:54 am

This is an odd bug. The strange thing is that nothing really triggers it, it just happens whether the mouse is moving fast or not and no matter where the mouse is, it still does it. Sometimes it works fine, for hours then it just kicks back up again. Does anyone know how to fix this? It's a Dynex usb mouse; I've heard reports of people editing their xorg.dll file but I'm not that linux initiated yet(god, I don't even know how to log in as root).

Anyone?
