    I have now installed this driver and copied the relevant parts of the
    example X configuration file. However, I do not think that this is the
    correct driver. I can move the mouse around, but only VERY slowly
    (takes 6-7 swipes over the pad just to go from one edge of the screen
    to the other), and only the left/right buttons work. Tapping does NOT
    work. I also installed and ran gsynaptics. I am not sure how or if
    this program will change my X config or not, but changing any settings
    there did not have any effect on the mouse at all. (It also showed
    that tapping was enabled.)

    Where can I find evtest? It is not in my distribution's software
    repository (Fedora 8). I have tried to use xev instead (I do not know
    if this is sufficient), and it reports the following when I press
    up/down buttons:

    ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
    root 0x13b, subw 0x0, time 2305203062, (49,88), root:(600,409),
    state 0x0, button 4, same_screen YES

    ButtonRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
    root 0x13b, subw 0x0, time 2305203062, (49,88), root:(600,409),
    state 0x800, button 4, same_screen YES

    ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
    root 0x13b, subw 0x0, time 2305205151, (49,88), root:(600,409),
    state 0x0, button 5, same_screen YES

    ButtonRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
    root 0x13b, subw 0x0, time 2305205151, (49,88), root:(600,409),
    state 0x1000, button 5, same_screen YES


    Still, I wonder if it may be better for me to use the old driver
    (ImPS/2 -- is this the Intellimouse?) since this used to work
    perfectly for me earlier. Maybe I can just remove the GlidePoint
    driver from my kernel to force the older driver?


    Kind regards,
