View Full Version : [ubuntu] Serial mouse?

April 18th, 2009, 08:07 PM
Hi, i was doing my own terminatorX turntable with a mouse. I found an old mouse, but is a serial mouse, that connects trough the serial port.
I connected to the PC but ubuntu did not reconized. Is a way to make it function, with a driver or something?

I edited the /etc/X11/Xorg.conf
and i added this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Serial Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

I restarted Xorg but still nothing :(
Can anybody help???

I connected and reconnected the serial mouse.
I ran "dmesg" and i get this:

[ 30.985855] input: ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input7

Any idea?
I will appreciate that somebody answer.
