SCO Unix X11 and GUI FAQ

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

I can't use the SCO Unix GUI because the mouse doesn't work!

This is an ancient post with little relevance to modern systems.

Stuck in the GUI without a mouse? Hold SHIFT-ALT-F2, release, and then ALT-F will give you the File menu.

A way to just plain get out is to hold ALT and SYS-REQ, release and press ENTER.

The command to configure a mouse is "mkdev mouse". In most modern machines, you have a "High Resolution Keyboard Mouse".
