Suddenly (before there was no problem) I started FC4 and I received this message:

Quote:

I can not start the X server (your graphical interface). It seems that the pointer (your mouse) is not setup correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose


The mouse that I have got is USB Toshisba Mini Optical Mouse.i.e it is a mouse that stopped working suddnely?



I googled and I found this
https://www.redhat.com/archives/redhat-install-list/2005-June/msg00155.html

I followed the steps without any success.

I can not find the proper answer for the below poped windows:
Quote:

Would you like me to try to run the mouse configuration program? Note that you will need the root password for this.


When I clicked yes, another window poped up :

Code:

Mouse Selection

Select the appropriate mouse for the system

Generic - 2 Buttom Mouse (PS/2)
Generic - 2 Buttom Mouse (USB)
Generic - 2 Buttom Mouse (Serial)
Generic - 3 Buttom Mouse (PS/2)
Generic - 3 Buttom Mouse (USB)
Generic - 3 Buttom Mouse (Serial)
' - - - - --
'-- - - -- -
'
'


but i could not find the name of the mouse that I have got!!!!!

I tried couple selections, but all of them did not work

I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf,,,,I found this :

Code:

Section       "Input Device"
Identifier     "Mouse 0"
Driver         "mouse"
Option         "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"


I checked dmesg |more ,,,,I found this:
Code:

mice: [u]PS/2[/u] mouse device common for all mice

Have you tried another mouse? if it's just stopped working, with no changes to your software, it could well be a hardware failure.

You don't appear to have a Device line in xorg.conf. It should be something like
Code:
Option "Device"         "/dev/input/mice"
