open in the texteditor
/etc/X11/xorg.conf

replace:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
with
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

Save and reboot.
Not shure, if this is sufficient, but try this first.

If that does not work immedeatly, open a consolewindow, and type:
modprobe usbhid
Maybe you must restart X then.
If that works, we could add it to the startscript.

I go asleep soon, so might reply only tomorrow, but certainly Bob and others will help, too Smile

If it does not work, it will not shut off the built in mouse (looks like a pencil eraser in the keyboard) will it? That one works now ( it is just hard to use), and I would not want to be mouseless.

I did not try that. I went to the mouse and keyboard wizard and clicked on USB which makes the USB mouse work instantly but does not save that info.

I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf and it already has
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
So then I did the console window modprobe usbhid which works immediately. But it will not keep it. I have to do it at every boot. How can I make it permanent?

Open in the text editor:
/etc/rc.d/rc.local
and add:
modprobe usbhid
as the last line.

Now "modprobe usbhid" will be executed at every boot.

Thanks. I will try it tonight when I get home.
I just wanted to say thanks for all of the help. The fact that I have been able to receive help from total strangers from Sweden, Germany and the US all at the same time is so cool. Because of you guys help, I managed to turn a really slow old laptop into a fast old laptop at a cost of only $15.00 (bought a floppy drive off Ebay). I have been using Microsoft products since DOS 3.3, and I have never seen this type of free support system in place for a free product. I am hooked.

Ok. It works. USB mouse loads each time. Last on the list is my Netgear Wireless network card. (WG511v2). So far, I have done everything suggested at http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=11617&highlight=netgear+wg511
with no luck. It tells me the driver is not loaded.
Thanks for you help to this point.

I had the same issue with Puppy 2.10 with my Thinkspad T22. I plugged in an external mouse and problem solved. Since I don't use it much in my lap, thats OK with me. -Mark
