OK, I've changed /dev/mouse to /dev/wsmouse in /etc/XF86Config and the mouse
doesn't work correctly in X - the cursos behaves as when using different
mouse protocol. It is set to "Microsoft" and it works when using /dev/mouse
directly. What should I also change in /etc/XF86Config file?
I'm not a mouse expert. IMHO moused decodes the mouse data correctly and the
problem is with sending the events to the kernel. Is there any way to run
moused _without_ running X in the background?
