FreeBSD 7.2 RC1 - A4tech X7 mouse
I'm neewbe in FreeBSD.
I have an A4tech X7 laser mouse + FreeBSD 7.2 RC1 + Gnome
Connection: USB , cable
In character mode i can move the mouse pointer normally, but in graphical mode not work.
Here is parts of my important config files:
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
I'm sure the problem is in the xorg.conf file.
Do you have any idea someone?
I had the same problem with 7.2-RELEASE, the cursor was moving in text mode but not in X.
I solved it by turning on NumLock BEFORE starting X. You can install the program 'x11/numlockx' and add the following at the beginning of your .xinitrc:
I tried it, but unfortunately didn't work.
I think waiting for the 8.0 version.
One more times: thank you for your answer.

Though the cursor is moving in 7.2 after turning on NumLock, many programs crash, so the system is almost unusable. This is not what I call high quality software...
If someone knows of a better solution, please let us know.
Thanks in advance.
I agree with You.
Sent before you this error across FreeBSD bugreport??
Maybe the error are in X11 system and this is not FreeBSD problem. I think that because USB function working good when I connect and disconnect my mouse.
I'm sorry because the BSD system very sympathetic for me and develop dynamically.
Hey, I found a solution !
include this lines in rc.conf
that works for me !
Thx, but I had that two line
So, this is not work for me.
