I don't know if this is the right place to ask it.. but the console is also a 'desktop environment' am I right? :roll:

I want to use my mouse while I'm in the console (not Xtem).
Any ideas how to do this?

Thanks,
Patrick

use mc :D
if your mouse is hooked up properly (recognized by your kernel and such)
then is should work

I use mc almost al the time :)
But there's no mouse...

Recognized by the kernel?

Isn't there any change to get the mouse working all over the console? (not just mc)
With RedHat I always had a working mouse in the console, very handy for copying and such :)

Any ideas?

Thanks
