Input device weirdness
When unplugging the glove, the USB subsytem may go crazy and deny you control of your mouse pointer/make it behave erratically. Re-initialising the USB subsystem tends to sort this out.
Writing a small shell script to do this is probably best. For example:
#!/bin/bash # This will write message out to your system log. /var/log/messages or whatever. LOGGER="/usr/bin/logger -t P5UNLOADER" $LOGGER "Unloading kernel modules" # You need to change the lines below to reflect USB dependancies on your system. # Examine the output of lsmod for details. If you do not see USB modules, you # need to recompile your kernel so that USB support is modular and not compiled # in, otherwise rebooting will be required to achieve the same effect. modprobe -r ehci_hcd modprobe -r uhci_hcd modprobe -r usb_storage modprobe -r usbmouse modprobe -r usbkbd modprobe -r usbhid $LOGGER "Unmounting /proc/bus/usb" umount /proc/bus/usb modprobe -r usbcore modprobe usbcore $LOGGER "Remounting /proc/bus/usb" mount -t usbfs usbfs /proc/bus/usb $LOGGER "Reloading kernel modules" # Again, change the lines below to reflect the modules on your system modprobe ehci_hcd modprobe uhci_hcd modprobe usb_storage modprobe usbmouse modprobe usbkbd modprobe usbhid
Edit the script to your needs and put it somewhere sensible (mine lives at /usr/local/bin/recoverfromglove). Run it as root to regain control of your input devices (don't forget to chmod +x it first). Occasionally, even after running it you'll need to click a bit before left/right click works properly.
