TARGUS Wireless Mouse Problem

Postby SemDiggity » Sat Mar 14, 2009 3:03 pm

Let me first start of by stating that I'm completely new to Linux. That said, I don't k now where to go to even begin fixing this problem.

I'm trying to get my Targus AMW07US wireless mouse to work with Felicia.

When I insert the reciever into the USB port on the computer /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows that it has recongnized that a mouse has been inserted.

(II) config/hal: Adding input device PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver
(**) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: always reports core events
(**) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: Device: "/dev/input/event2"
(II) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: Found x and y relative axes
(II) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: Configuring as mouse
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver" (type: MOUSE)
(**) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: YAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) PATEN USB/PS2 Combo Receiver: EmulateWheelButton: 4, EmulateWheelInertia: 10, EmulateWheelTimeout: 200

But Xorg.conf does not show any record of a mouse in the input devices.

Ive tried searches here and on google to find out what to do, but I need help here.

Thanks in advance.

This is a good start but you have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have - which version and which edition (main or any of the CEs)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (To copy from a terminal right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
lspci is maybe not so important, but lsusb is because when we know the ID of the dongle we can search for info about it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
