Re: [vox-tech] Multiple Mice in X

Hmm... what kind of laptop (make and model) I have a whole bunch of laptop keyboard/trackpoint assemblies (mostly for older ThinkPads)

Failing that, your best bet, I think, would be to either try an external ps/2 mouse, or set the x mouse to 'sysmouse' and mess with it using moused on the command line. For me, anyhow, that is much easier to debug.

mouse and turn on another in X. Ive been looking but I
cant seem to find it and xsetmouse doesent seem to
have any function other then listing my config file.
