Laptops and USB mouses
Date: Mon, 06 Sep 2004 22:12:45 +0200
Before screwing up my configuration, I have a question about USB mouses.
The thing I'd like to do is this: use BOTH touchpad and USB mouse.
In this way, I can use the touchpad while no mouse is connected on a USB
port, and when it gets plugged in, the mouse takes control. Better would
be if at the same time they can be both working.
In this problem, I know about kernel issues (hid & company) and the usb
mouse it's properly recognized: I have two mouse? in /dev/input, mouse0
and mouse1 (probably it's the touchpad and the stick --- I have an ibm
thinkpad), when I plug the usb mouse, it appears /dev/inpus/mouse2. What
