Right mouse button problem
Logitech 3-button mouseman (serial), Suse 6.4, kernel 2.4.test11, fvwm95.
A few weeks ago (I hadn't done anything new THAT I COULD THINK OF at the
time) my right mouse button stopped working. Left and middle work fine,
but the right is dead in the water. Running xmseconfig and just hitting
APPLY solves the problem for a while (hours or minutes) but then the button
just dies again. For a while I thought it was netscape, but it happened
when it wasn't running. Could xv (running under tkwallpaper) be doing it?
Sometimes when the button dies strange stuff happens -- cursor jumping
around, wrong cursor-shape appearing, phantom clicks creating new windows,
Somebody suggested a hardware problem requiring reinitialization.
Unfortunately I don't have another 3-button mouse to try.
