    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    Using an MX310, this guide worked great. Way easier than the one I used before. I just came back to ubuntu after a long haitus, and let me tell you, it's the same as before. Every single thing I try to do, be it load video drivers, or get my mouse working, every thing I try messes up ubuntu. No matter that I diligently follow the instructions to a T. I noticed before that even following my own notes on how to do things would never work the same way twice. This guide, however, worked right off the bat.

    Thank you very much!!!

    hehe, my little Western Digital 7.5GB testing HD on which I had Edgy installed started clicking and died before yesterday as well.

    Thanks for this how-to, now I can use the forward / back buttons on my MX700 in Konqueror too . I have a couple suggestions though. I haven't read the whole thread (just the first post which is all I needed) so I apologize if any of this has been suggested or mentioned before (I assume any modifications would be in the first post), but do you really need to restart the machine? You can issue a
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
    to restart udev and detect new rulesets / hardware, and then just start xbindkeys manually for the current session. Also you may want to put in there for the KDE folks to get xbindkeys to start automatically, you can do the following:

    1. Create a startup script
    Code:
    kedit ~/.kde/Autostart/start-xbindkeys
    2. Insert this into it
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    xbindkeys
    3. Make it executable
    Code:
    chmod +x start-xbindkeys
    Once again thanks for this easy to follow how-to, my buttons all work now.

    EDIT: I almost forgot, for my MX700 I'm using the USB --> PS/2 adapter that came with it, so the output of
    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    for me was "PS2++ Logitech MX Mouse" instead of "Logitech USB Receiver".

    I'm using a Logitech mouse that has a scroll wheel that can also scroll left and right. I ran xev and it came up with buttons 11, and 12. I setup my local-19 file exactly like the one in your guide and my forward and back buttons work, but I'm not sure how to get the scrollwheel to go side to side.

    for some reason, the local-rules file made my sound die. I entered exactly:

    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse", NAME="input/event9"

    where the last "input/event9" was adjusted as pointed out in the guide. What made me wonder, however, should the first KERNEL=="event[0-9]*" be changed too, or left as it is?

    The scroll left and right should generate buttons 6 and 7 in xev. You would need to set up xmodmap to get it working I believe. Try this:

    Code:
    gedit ~/.Xmodmap
    Paste this in there:
    Code:
    pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 10 11 6 7 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32
    save and close
    Code:
    xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
    If if complains about too many buttons, delete some off the end untill you have the right amount. Then try xev.

    Hmm, that's weird. Do you still get a sound device in /proc/bus/input/devices?

    Didn't know that, haven't tried it. I'll try it next time I need to set up something like this.
