Mouse won't move to edges of screen

Using opensuse 11.3 (i586) on older computers in a primary school lab. Mouse will not move to the far left or far right 20% of the desktop (stays in mid 60%). Most of the computers are fine, but this just started happening (May 2012) on 2 of the computers.
Using std. KDE/xorg from 11.3 updated thru final update.

Were monitors in those PCs changed ?

Can you compare “/etc/X11/xorg.conf” on affected and non affected PCs ?

or the contents of every file in these directories “/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/” if the file is not present ?

Yes, the computers were moved to different monitors. (For instance one was rebuilt at my house and then installed at the lab.) It worked fine on my monitor at the house. I will look at the files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d when I return to the school on Monday morning.


This might be the problem then. Resolution difference and something incorrectly specified in xorg.conf or one of the xorg.conf.d files. Hope you’ll find it soon :slight_smile:
