http://www.unix.com – Running Slackware 13.37 original without updates. Need to replace my trackball with optical mouse temporarily. There is no xf86config file anylonger but xorg.conf file is produced automatically. I see 2 "xorg.conf" files which can be and were modified on installation: 1) /etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa and 2) /root/xorg.conf.new. The descriptions for the mouse are: 1) [code] Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse1" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "PS/2" Option "Device" "/dev/mouse&quot (HowTos)
