I have a MX518 and I have gotten the back and forward and app switcher buttons to work but I cant get the dpi up and down buttons to work. I am not really sure what to try next as I am pretty new to getting stuff working under linux.
raistlin@dragonstear:~$ cat /proc/bus/input/devices

Also,under xev the dpi up and down buttons do not register events at all.
Did you edit xorg.conf in order to use evdev? Default driver doesn't register events from all buttons.
Yes I did, this is what I added to it:
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event9" #this should be that underlined name from 19-local.rules
I replaced LMCtl with lomoco in the tutorial, try that instead of LMCtl.Originally Posted by trxDraxon
I think this is more related to evdev's handling of mouse/keyboard receiver combos (MX Cordless Desktop here) than kernel problems, at least for some buttons.
Might be both, but the kernel issue is a known one for some keyboards.
Okay got the cruise buttons to work with lomoco. They now change the DPI on the fly no problem. But they still dont create an event in xev. What I want to get done is be able to map them to a key say F for use as a keybind in games. Not sure what im doing wrong if im just over looking something since im a newb. I followed the guild exactly and everything works just fine.
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-445810.html Maybe we should try newer version of evdev? But guys from Gentoo forum probably used the newest one...
UPDATE: I've checked Xorg CVS - evdev 1.1.2 is the newest one. It's already included in Ubuntu.

Well, I guess we could try using the evdev driver for the keyboard as well, although I don't know what the results will be.
