From time to time I get a hanging mouse on my Lenvovo Thinkpad. My system runs a Debian Linux on Mint 13.  At this point in time /var/log/syslog has multiple lines of the following format:

Feb 16 13:06:24 majestix kernel: [30109.311850] psmouse serio4: TouchPad at isa0 060/serio4/input0 lost sync at byte 1

That's annoying and I searched in the net and finally found a workaround I describe below.

Nachdem es Probleme gab googleearth 5 auf openSuSE 11.2 zu starten habe ich heute mal googleearth beta ausprobiert und bekam ein Problem.
