I have a trackball that is not working the way that I'm expecting it to.
When I roll the boll, I get ButtonPress & ButtonRelease events -
4/5 for up/down, and 6/7 for left to right.

However - the pointer does not move.  And I'm expecting it to do so.

How do I get it to move?

I'm using the evdev 1.2.0 driver, but I don't think that is the

Thanks for any and all help!
