I have Dosbox up and running very nicely.

I have an old DOS Solitaire game installed that uses a mouse, and I have Windows 3.1 installed and working by using the keyboard.

I just bought a cheap USB mouse to check out mouse support on Dosbox, but so far I haven't been able to make it work.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might be able to get the mouse working?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks, Doug

do a
# lsmod

do you see the mousedev module loaded?

if not do a...

# modprobe mousedev

then launch dosbox...

BTW: When DOS and Windows 3.1 were released, there were NO USB mice or peripherals.
I just realized this post is in Hardware Mods

Very very very untrue... if im understanding you correctly...

DosBox emulates a serial mouse I believe...

prior to usb mice... there were and still is ps2 mice... prior to ps2 mice there were serial mice... serial mice have been in the world since the early 90's maybe very late 80's... I can say from experience I used a mouse in the 1991 maybe 1992... in windows 3.1..
