I've tried starting GPM by typing 'GPM' and got the message "08o.oops(): [gpm.c(933)]: Please use -m /dev/mouse -t protocol" What do I hgave to do to cut & paste?

on the more recent live CDs GPM runs automatically. You select the text
you want as usual (holding down the right mouse button or shifting and
use the arrow keys). To paste into your other tty you normally click the
middle button in linux (If you don't have a middle button then click
both at once!)
If you just move the mouse about - do you have a white block cursor that
moves around too?
When you booted into the live CD didn't it ask you for your keyboard
layout? The newer ones do...
Are you using a UK keyboard (I guess by the time you must be in europe
somewhere, or perhaps Australasia?)
Hi, cd didn't ask for keyboard layout.
I don't have any cursor. the mouse driver doesn't appear to be loaded. Mouse does nothing(I'm in Ireland).
How do I get that working?
