Thanks gkreidl, this fixed it for me too.
The problem itself is not related to the use of rpi-update at all. It just showed up for the first time in 2014 when updating the kernel. The reduced mouse polling rate has been in the official kernel releases for a long time now. Although it's fine by itself, it produces problems with most wireless keyboard/mouse combos. The command line option was added for people who run into this problem.
Maybe the same solution is still applicable?The /boot/cmdline.text is empty? I added the usbhid.mousepoll=0 anyway but it didn't solve the issue.
Any tips for the new version of raspian?
No, cmdline.txt should never be an empty file. I suspect the poster has edited the wrong filename.B.Goode wrote: ↑Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:28 amAlthough it is nearly 4 years since this solution was first posted, I would not expect /boot/cmdline.txt to be an empty file with a fresh installation of Raspbian Stretch.
To be sure you are not missing my point: although it contains readable text, the file is not named /boot/cmdline.text.
/boot/cmdline.txt, not /boot/cmdline.text.
Check your edits again.
THIS is GREAT!! it worked for me!!!CaptDan wrote: ↑Fri Jun 05, 2015 6:29 pmThis worked GREAT but I'm a Pi and Linux noob and needed some research before I could get this to work. Here's the cheat sheet for all the other noobs out there:
-Type this into a terminal: sudo nano /boot/cmdline.text
- sudo, short for 'Super User Do' runs commands at supervisor or 'root' privilege level
- nano starts Nano which is a Linux command-line text editor installed with Pi
- /boot/cmdline.text opens the appropriate boot file in the editor
- Add this at the end of the text file content as gkreidl said: usbhid.mousepoll=0
- To save hit Ctrl-O and then hit Enter (ignore options)
- If you open the file you can see that it has now been modified
-To reboot enter the following command: sudo shutdown -r now
- sudo runs as supervisor or 'root' privilege
- r stands for reboot
- now tells it to reboot now.
Code: Select all
sudo sed -i 's/$/ usbhid.mousepoll=0&/p' /boot/cmdline.txt
