    Default PS2 Controller

    How would i go about getting my PS2 controller working in 11.3? It's connected via a PSX to USB adapter.

    I don't have the definitive answer to this (not having PS/2 hardware for a long time now), but I would start by having a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log for any mouse-related errors

    grep -i mouse /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    It may be that the X-server needs to fall back to legacy drivers to support your mouse. The Xorg config files are located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, and specifically 60-layout.conf may need this entry

    Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
    which forces X-server to support input devices that require the 'mouse' and 'kbd' drivers.

    Some possbily useful references:

    Input device configuration - FedoraProject

    HAL, xserver 1.5.3 and AllowEmptyInput Motho ke motho ka botho

    Some googling may be necessary...
