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.
