    Re: Math Type for Linux?

    Have you been able to get the integration and summation symbols to appear correctly when using Mathtype in Wine on Linux?

    There seems to be something messed up with the fonts. If I create a...
  2. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Answered my own question. Alt-F5 will show the list of windows and the applications that are open within each window. The only drawback is that it only shows windows that have something open in...
  3. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Has anyone come up with a convenient way to switch between virtual desktops.

    In KDE, on the taskbar there is an "up arrow" displayed, and if one clicks on it a list of desktops appears along...

    Oh, ........ and I thought it was a woman interfering. :) I was going to have to talk to your relationship manager.....
  5. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    That may have been my problem. I may have been starting and stopping btnx as I added more button functionality. I'll just wait to see what happens when I'm back on that machine again this evening.
  6. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    I finally got btnx working under Mandriva. I copied the btnx executable to /etc/rc.d/init.d and edited /etc/rc5.d/S99local and added the line /etc/init.d/btnx -b start

    One problem that I've...
  7. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    It kind of looks like this is a dead issue for distributions other than *buntu. Does anyone know where to find the documentation to set up mouse buttons using the "standard" methodology? That way...
  8. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    How did your install of Mandriva 2008 go? Which version did you install? After the installation of btnx you will notice that btnx appears in the Mandriva Control Center (menu item Configure Your...

    Be careful!!! There is always the possibility that you will like Mandriva more than Ubuntu. :biggrin:
  10. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Still no go. Easiest way to recreate the problem is just to click the "Restart btnx" button in btnx-config. The btnx-config application hangs at that point. I can see that btnx has started, but my...
  11. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    I would get claustrophobic with only one screen. :)

    My problem only seems to exist when /etc/udev/rules.d/99-btnx.rules is there. When I remove 99-btnx.rules the system boots fine. I had to try...
  12. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    I didn't have to do any uninstalling of btnx, because I just did a new install of Mandriva 2008.0 (not an upgrade, but a new isntall.)

    My previously installed btnx (on Mandriva 2008.0 a couple of...
  13. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Will try. Probably won't get to it until about 1700 EDT, after I get home.
  14. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Well, it was a no go. :( The system hangs at boot with a "starting udev" To bypass that point I key a CTRL Z. The bring up process then continues, sometimes with a mouse, sometimes without. I...
  15. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    I'm anxious to try it out. It will have to wait until I get home from work, but will report back as soon as I can. Thanks much! :)
  16. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    If I attempt to start it using Mandriva Control Center I get:
    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 70: start-stop-daemon: command not found
    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 79: start-stop-daemon: command not found

    If...
  17. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Commenting out line 34 (reference to vars.sh) which then caused the following errors:

    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 130: log_daemon_msg: command not found
    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 70: start-stop_daemon:...
  18. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    When attempting to start the btnx service I get the error message, "/etc/init.d/btnx: line 34: /lib/init/vars.sh: No such file or directory"

    Any ideas?

    Sorry for the confusion, I was just being stupid. :oops: I didn't have the source installed. Sigh..... Am now in the process of detecting, etc. Thanks much.

    You mean you've been letting a real life get in the way of your btnx work? :confused:

    A GUI front end? What could possibly be next!!!! I want it to make coffee. :)
  23. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Everything seems to work right. I think the thumb buttons are backwards as mentioned in another post, but haven't fixed it yet. InputDevice section of xorg.conf follows:


    Section "InputDevice"

  24. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Actually my xorg.conf looks exactly the way you wanted. I added "modprobe uinput", a directory change, and ./btnx to /etc/rc.d/rc.local for Mandriva 2007.1 so that stuff would auto load.

    Now I...
  25. Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Think I have success now. Issue seems to have been with my xorg.conf. I did get the "3C" and "3D" with a wheel left and wheel right in a shell console. Now to be about exploring. Thanks much for...
