Yes, but i'm talking about the live/desktop Xubuntu Flight 7, when XFCE4
starts, my mouse is locked. I know how to get it working, but i think it
would a very bad impression for people new to linux. Also, it's a LIVE
cd now, so it's supossed to work right out of the box and the main
installation procedure.

Well, just my thought.

Regards, Matías.

PS: I haven't test this with ubuntu or kubuntu (because is to heavy for
my old machine), but maybe they have this problem too. But since Ubuntu
and Kubuntu won't usually be installed on old hardware with serial
mouse, it's not serious.
