Are you sure about that? When you 'cat /etc/sysconfig/mouse' it should
display something like this:

[ddiaz at akva ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/mouse
# start /etc/sysconfig/mouse
# end /etc/sysconfig/mouse

Be sure to have /etc/sysconfig/mouse as a FILE not as a DIRECTORY.

It would be great to have some basic understanding of Bash. I have
already looked for some French tutorials, but just can't find any.

Go over to the GPM seccion from the book. Be sure to change
"[yourdevice]" and "[yourprotocol]" for something appropriate.

As for RPC, don't know.
