My Mouse is driving me nuts! Thinkpad T61

I cannot believe the problems I'm having with FC10 and my Thinkpad T61.

I have had no problems with Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 - I will have to go back because of this.

I'm using the red "nipple" as the mouse. It is jerky as hell - it jumps all over the place.

When I first boot it works fine for a while and then it gets jumpy.

I tried fixing the MTRR using the guide here:


I don't understand it and It doesn't solve the problem, output of cat /proc/mtrr

reg00: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size=2048MB: write-back, count=1
reg01: base=0x80000000 (2048MB), size=1024MB: write-back, count=1
reg02: base=0xc0000000 (3072MB), size= 256MB: write-back, count=1
reg03: base=0xd0000000 (3328MB), size= 128MB: write-back, count=1
reg04: base=0xd8000000 (3456MB), size= 128MB: uncachable, count=1
reg05: base=0xe0000000 (3584MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
reg06: base=0xe8000000 (3712MB), size= 128MB: write-combining, count=1
reg07: base=0x100000000 (4096MB), size=1024MB: write-back, count=1

I don't know if this is correct

I also tried using system-config-display to create a xorg.conf and then added the following:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" # IMPS/2 is not recommend for TrackPoints
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "EmulateWheel" "on"
Option "EmulateWheelTimeout" "200"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
Option "YAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "XAxisMapping" "6 7"

Again I don't know what I'm doing and if this is correct!

I'm really pissed off.

I donno.
Maybe you could try and copy your ubuntu xorg.conf over to fedora? I think they use the same version.

It's OK to use ubuntu, it's a good thing. You get a lot of fan boys in here that will promote fedora over ubuntu but in the end it's all good. I have had ubuntu installed a few time myself. I am just more familiar with fedora.

Best of Luck,
