10.2.8 Mouse Preferences Won't Run


This service is soooo excellent. We have a ibook G3 500 and a g4 400 both just got 10.2.8. Neither will run the mouse control panel from system preferences, all it says is "Preferences Error" no number, no anything. All help is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried repairing permissions from within Disk Utility?

How about running fsck from within Single User Mode? (Hold down Apple-S after you hear the startup chime and follow the directions. Type exit once your finished to boot back to OS X.)

You can also try and delete the .plist file for System Preferences in ~/Library/Preferences if it exists.

(The "~" means your home directory)
