hp-ux 11i, mouse button/wheel makes x hang.

Unread postby VenomousPinecone » Thu Jun 08, 2006 7:39 pm

I have a 4 button usb wheel mouse hooked up to my c3000. If I accidently scroll or click the 4th button, X will hang. According to my searches, the problem is fixed with a couple of patches. Cool, no big deal, thats not why im posting.

It brought up another question.

In Linux, when X crashes (not if) you can simply ctrl+alt+backspace to kill X and drop you into text mode.

Is there an HP-UX equivalent to this command?

I tried searching, but my nomenclature could have screwed me.
