[Bug 162790] Re: mouse scroll wheel rolled up/back causes context menu to appear

Did you actually create that options file in /etc/modprobe.d with the line suggested above?

As you too use some interface between your PC and the mouse/keyboard, it must have a relation to the translation of the mouse signals in the converter. Don't you have a USB mouse that can be connected directly to a USB port and see it the problem persists? If I remove the options file and connect the PS/2 keyboard and the Logitech USB mouse directly to the PC, everything works fine. When I use the 2 port KVM, I have to use an adapter USB>PS/2 for the mouse. The KVM itself has only PS/2 cables. Omitting the file immediately recreates the problem, albeit only in Firefox. I use the KVM because I often need to host a PC to the other set of cables on the KVM and I do not want to disconnect end reconnect all the time. In fact the complete bunch of cables, including video, network and audo lays bundled on the floor waiting for the next victim PC to solve whatever destructive action an owner could do...:-) The other port is for my Linux PC that cold boots in 30 seconds to a working Lucid.
Cheers, Peter
