    Re: How-to Scrollwheel Effect on Logitech trackball (Marble Mouse)

    I just thought I'd share my xorg.conf. I've set it up so that the big left and right buttons work normally (click, right click) and pressing them at the same time acts as a middle click. Holding the small left button will let you scroll up and down with the trackball. Clicking small left and right buttons will let you go back/forward in firefox.

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "MarbleMouse"
        Driver     "mouse"
        Option     "Protocol" "auto"
        Option     "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option     "Buttons" "5"
        Option     "ButtonMapping" "1 8 3 6 7"
        Option     "EmulateWheel"  "true"
        Option     "EmulateWheelTimeout" "300"  # msec
        Option     "EmulateWheelButton"  "6"
        Option     "YAxisMapping"        "4 5"
    EndSection
    Make sure that you have "MarbleMouse" under the server layout section as well. Hope someone finds this usefull!

    My config, set up to use right-handed, with buttons working as follows:
    Big Left: normal left button
    Small Left: "Button 3", ie does Pasting from clipboard
    Small Right: Hold it and scroll the trackball (vertically only)
    Big Right: normal right button

    xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "mouse"
            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
            Option          "Protocol"              "ExplorerPS/2"
            Option          "Buttons"               "9"
            Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
            Option          "EmulateWheel"          "1"
            Option          "EmulateWheelButton"    "9"
            Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
    EndSection
    In my ~/.kde/Autostart directory, I have a tiny shell script (trackball.sh) which runs this command:
    Code:
    /usr/bin/xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 8 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11 12 13"
    It's a bit odd to refer to 13 buttons when we just define 9, but hey, it works a treat!

    Re: How-to Scrollwheel Effect on Logitech trackball (Marble Mouse)

    I use this configuration to scroll with the trackball + small left button:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"mouse"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
    	Option		"Protocol"		"ExplorerPS/2"
    	Option		"Emulate3Buttons"	"true"
    	Option		"Buttons"		"9"
    	Option		"EmulateWheel"		"1"
    	Option		"EmulateWheelButton"	"8"
    	Option		"YAxisMapping"		"4 5" 
    EndSection
    I would like the small right button to behave the same (so I can scroll with trackball + small right button).
    I tried this:
    Option "EmulateWheelButton" "8 9"
    and this:
    Option "EmulateWheelButton" "8,9"
    but it didn't work.

    any ideas?

    Nice job. I found this useful. Works perfectly in Gutsy.

    I think this is the best way to set up the mouse. I wonder if we could still get the mouse to scroll ANY direction, though. Also, can we set it up to go back/forward in nautilus? I'm so happy with the Marble"mouse". Thanks.
    You hesitate, you wait.=D>

    Just needed to rebuild a workstation from scratch, and forgot to save my xorg.conf file. Oops!

    Fortunately, I could still find this thread. I'm even a lefty, so Buffalo Soldier's original post works great for me!

    I haven't needed to worry about saving my mouse config since Dapper; thanks again Buffalo!

    Re: How-to Scrollwheel Effect on Logitech trackball (Marble Mouse)

    I set my xorg so button 3 (big right) is my scroll effect.
    I want to make the small left (and if possible also the mall right) the paste button.
    I try to change the ButtonMapping to 1 8 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 but it didn't help.

    any ideas?

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
    Option "Buttons" "9"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 8 3 4 5 6 7 2 9"
    Option "EmulateWheel" "1"
    Option "EmulateWheelButton" "3"
    Option "YAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection

    Hi guys, I missed something here, where does one put these magic codes. I don't do enough of this sort of thing, so I just don't know?

    bthessel said, Make sure that you have "MarbleMouse" under the server layout section as well.

    b: Any chance you could include exactly what's needed for that section, too?

    Cheers & thanks,
