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

Yes, the mouse does work ok (plug-n-play) in Qtopia if I install inputhelper_1.0.1-1_arm.ipk.
It has a cross-hair type of cursor.
The cursor also displays and moves around the screen in Dosbox, but pressing the buttons has no effect.
It also causes Dosbox to terminate unexpectedly.

I'll check out input-modules-2.4.20_1.23-lite-1_arm.ipk.
Thanks.

Side note...
I also have Dosbox installed on my windoze laptop, and it recognizes the touchpad, which is a PS/2 device.
If I plug in the same USB mouse, it also works fine.
