a USB mouse? do they use the same protocol?
| The other problem is the screen. Mostly I configure screens like this:
| Section "Monitor"
| Identifier "Generic Monitor"
| # HorizSync 30-96
| # VertRefresh 48-160
| Option "DPMS"
This is bad. If your monitor doesn't return DDC information the driver will
rely on what is in the configuration and if there is nothing it will just

| you don't need much at all.
This is strictly related to your specific driver/monitor/videocard combination.
It might work for you, it doesn't for me when i am connected via a kvm and
since we don't know what a user have installed, we go for the safest path.
The last available dish of the food you have decided to eat, will be
inevitably taken from the person in front of you.
