mouse_init(3)		      Svgalib User Manual		 mouse_init(3)

       mouse_init, mouse_init_return_fd	- specifically initialize a mouse

       #include	<vgamouse.h>

       int mouse_init(char *dev, int type, int samplerate);
       int mouse_init_return_fd(char *dev, int type, int samplerate);

       These  routines	can  be	 used to open the mouse	manually, ignoring the
       mouse types or devices specified	in the config file.

       dev is the name of the mouse device (defaults to	/dev_mouse).

       samplerate may be one MOUSE_DEFAULTSAMPLERATE(150) or any other	value.
       Probably	it is in Hz.

       type  is	 one  of  the  types which are listed already in vga_getmouse-

       If these	routines are used it is	not necessary to call vga_setmousesup-
       port(3),	but it's probably better to not	use these and use vga_setmous-
       esupport(3) instead.

       The return_fd version returns the file descriptor of the	 mouse	device
       to  allow  you  to do further tricks with the mouse (but	the filehandle
       may change during a VC switch). The other version  just	returns	 0  if
       successful.  Both return	-1 on error.

       This  manual page was edited by Michael Weller <eowmob@exp-math.uni-es->.	The exact source of the	referenced function as well as of  the
       original	documentation is unknown.

       It is very likely that both are at least	to some	extent are due to Harm
       Hanemaayer <>.

       Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked	to be excused  by  the
       original	author and will	happily	accept any additions or	corrections to
       this first version of the svgalib manual.
