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

    last time I enabled evdev I started getting "scheduling while atomic: xorg" infinite error loops once I installed xgl / compiz, but the buttons worked. any instances of that under the new guide? Or am i retarded for thinking that the two events were related in the first place?

    excellent guides btw.

    Honestly, I don't know, since I don't really use Xgl or Compiz right now. It crashed on me too often and Compiz doesn't have all the features I would expect from a window manager yet.

    For my purposes (MX500) all I had to do is edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to contain the following under "Configured Mouse:"
    Code:
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
    This actually works on my Evoluent mouse too :]

    That won't make absolutely ALL of the buttons work, it won't make back/forward work in Nautilus, Thunar, etc, and won't give you 800 CPI resolution. It's a good solution, but I don't settle for just good. I wanted ALL of my buttons working and I wanted to be able to use my mouse at 800 CPI.

    thanks for that. the OP was too complicated.

    I cant believe setting my mx1000 mouse buttons was so much more difficult then winxp

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

    Ok, let's complicate things a little.

    I'm working on a laptop, and when I'm plugged in at my desk I use a Logitech LX700 Wireless Keyboard/Mouse combo. Using the above guide as a reference, I was able to make the buttons work for forward and backward. But when I disconnect the mouse to roam, my X server doesn't like the cofiguration and won't load. Then I have to go back in and comment out all the stuff I added in order to make it load X.

    Is it possible to make this configuration depend on whether it detects the hardware?

    Also, on my mouse there's a top button a little ways behind the scroll wheel that I'd like to map to Ctrl-T for use in firefox opening a new tab. I determined that the button is button #10 using xev, but when I tried to add the line
    Code:
    "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Control_L]\[T]""
      m:0x0 + b:10
    to my .xbindkeysrc and run xbindkeys it loads it so that it simply types the character 'T' when I click, and then when I removed the line (and ran xbindkeys again), it didn't stop typing the character. Restarting seemed to fix that, but I can't get the Ctrl-T to work at all. Ideas? Of course, it's moot if I can't get the configuration to work when it's not there.

    I must say that I've really appreciated the guide so far.

    Thanks,
    jay

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

    I have been !!!!

    I have the MX1000 and have been trying different things for a week.

    I created the 19-local.rules file
    Code:
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB Receiver", NAME="input/event9"
    I backed up and edited the Xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier    "Configured Mouse"
        Driver        "evdev"
        Option        "CorePointer"
        Option        "Device"        "/dev/input/event9"
    EndSection
    Restarted... that's when the gun just about came out of the cabinet. LOL


    My machine started in the text shell... grrrr.

    This came from the log file.

    Code:
    (EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom
        No such file or directory.
    Error opening /dev/wacom : No such file or directory
    That repeated 5 times to make a total of 6.

    What am I doing wrong?? I did copy and paste where I could as to reduce typo's. I would really like the full functionality of this great mouse and at the same time have X to run. I just want to much.

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

    I have a G7 and I also could not start X after the restart.

    Output from /proc/bus/input/devices that relate to my mouse:
    Code:
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c51a Version=4100
    N: Name="Logitech USB Receiver"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.7-4.1.2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input3
    H: Handlers=mouse0 event3 ts0
    B: EV=7
    B: KEY=ffff0000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    B: REL=143
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c51a Version=4100

    B: REL=40
    B: ABS=1 0
    I'm not sure why there are two listed here, could that be the problem?

    My 19-local.rules:
    Code:
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB Receiver", NAME="input/event9"
    My xorg.conf is identical to the example.

    Looks like the same warnings hubacap is getting... not sure what that wacom stuff is, since I don't have a tablet or anything like that. The Logitech G7 mouse and a Microsoft Keyboard are the only input devices I have.

    I'm not sue either. I have no wacom hooked up either but I have it in my xorg.conf file too. If I delete it it stops working.

    I believe someone replaced Option "CorePointer" with Option "SendCoreEvents" "True" to make it work. I haveb't tried it though, so I don't know.

    Try this in your .xbindkeysrc:
    Code:
    "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Control]\[t]""
      m:0x0 + b:10
    Remember to first kill xbindkeys before running it again:
    Code:
    killall xbindkeys
    xbindkeys
