Jerky wireless mouse

Hi, I have an USB wireless keyboard-mouse set, Creative Wireless 6000. The keyboard works OK in Fedora 3 core, but the mouse is jerky, both in 2.6.9 and 2.6.10.

I've found several references to a hid-core.c patch which is supposed to repair this. Has anyone succeeded in using this solution? Has it worked? If yes, where can I find the patch and how do I use it?

I've also tried this solution:
+----
| Option "Resolution" "300"
| Option "SampleRate" "500"
+----
posted somewhere, but it wouldn't work.

Great many thanks for any help

Hey,
I had the exact same problem. My solution was to plug the keyboard in via ps/2 (for grub selection at startup) and use usb mous capabilities. When I plugged the mouse via ps/2 it was all messed up. Hope this might help.

Hi Jcstille,

I don't think I understand: what do you mean "use usb mouse capabilities"? Can you clarify?

What's more, I don't need to plug the keyboard into PS/2 for grub selection -- the wireless one works OK with grub.

Thanks,

This might sound weird, but I had that problem, until I changed my mousepad. Try a different color or texture...

Thanks, but it's not a hardware problem. The mouse works just fine in Windows. What's more, it worked OK in a Debian installation I had before, so I'm currently stuck with the face of

BTW of mouse pads, have you seen this?:

Longhorn error#4711: TCPA / NGSCB VIOLATION: Microsoft optical mouse
detected penguin patterns on mousepad. Partition scan in progress
to remove offending incompatible products. Reactivate your MS software
(3 days grace period).

Hilarious, imho

Sorry, just got back to this thread.

Here is what I did. I have a microsoft media wireless keyboard. On the end there is a ps/2 connect and a usb connector. You are supposed to use USB for both, or ps/2 for both. But what I did was plugged the ps/2 connector into the keyboard slot (that runs my keyboard). Then I plugged the usb part to the usb port to run my mouse, since in Fedora if I plug the mouse into ps/2 it is very very jerky. You may try a simple solution like this.
Hope that is a better explanation.

Oh, I see. But my Creative Wireless has USB only... well, I'm still looking for solutions, but I will probably downgrade to 2.4.29.

Thanks anyway,
