I am having a mouse input problem. My mouse moves by 2 coordinates at a time. For example: If my mouse is currently at 100, 100 and I slowly move it to the right, my next point is 102, 100 instead of 101, 100 that you would expect. Any Ideas on whats causing this? I am testing this using xev and my xorg conf is below. I have tired various config options but nothing seems to be helping.

Code:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier      "mouse-all"
        #Driver         "evdev"
        Driver          "mouse"
        MatchIsPointer  "on"

        Option          "Protocol"              "Auto"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"

        #Option         "AccelerationProfile"   "7"

        #Option "AccelerationProfile" "0"
        #Option "AccelerationScheme" "lightweight"

        #Option "AccelerationNumerator" "1"
        #Option "AccelerationDenominator" "1"
        #Option "AccelerationThreshold" "0"

        #Option         "VelocityScale"         "20"
        #Option         "AccelerationScheme"    "none"
        #Option         "AccelerationProfile"   "-1"
        #Option         "ConstantDeceleration"  "6"

        #Option         "Sensitivity"           "0.6"
        #Option         "SampleRate"            "3500"
EndSection

I don't think this is the same problem but at one time I had my mouse specified twice in my Xorg.conf. Not only that it moved the mouse way too fast, it also resulted in every click also turning into a double-clock. It was very weird behavior, not to mention very hard to use my mouse until I rootcaused it.

Any reason why evdev isn't working for you?

Thanks for the reply. evdev has never worked for me on any of my systems. I enable it and the mouse does not move. I would be open to trying to get it working via evdev if you have any idea what could be wrong.

Have you try Xorg without any configuration files, using his default settings?

Ripping out that input class for the mouse resolves the issue and the mouse is totally usable now.

Thanks
