    Ok so i have installed 7.2-RELEASE amd64.

    Code:
    cat .xinitrc
    /usr/local/kde4/bin/startkde4


    Code:
    startx


    Mouse pointer ain't moving.

    In my /etc/rc.conf
    Code:
    moused_enable="YES"

    Mouse works on a console only but with KDE4, the mouse is freezing and not moving.

    Another thing,

    If I'm on the KDE with the mouse freezing, I thought ALT+F2 will run the "run program", but instead it kills X and brings me to console again.

    ANy fix?

    Thanks

    Make sure hald and dbus are running too. Then that AllowEmptyInput shouldn't be needed anymore.

    Tried
    on /etc/X11/xorg.conf - didn't work

    Tried
    Code:
    moused_enable="YES"
    hald_enable="YES"
    dbus_enable="YES"
    

    on /etc/rc.conf - restarted - boom ! It all works now.

    One more thing, in another PC. I got an error when starting gdm. The error was about the /var/lib/dbus - socket.. I can't remember the exact file but it got something to do with socket and dbus. It was a clean install and selecting all packages in the GNOME category.

    Here is what I did as I presumed will fix the problem.
    Tried
    Code:
    moused_enable="YES"
    hald_enable="YES"
    dbus_enable="YES"
    gdm_enable="YES"
    

    on /etc/rc.conf - boom ! it worked.
