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

    Okay, I was having fits in Gutsy, and even tried btnx which is nice, but I had several functions occur at a time when I used forward and back, so... I went back to the drawing board, and got it right with xmodmap.

    First

    sudo /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    then I changed the mouse to

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Protocol" "auto"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    EndSection

    then

        Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection
    Here is my new xorg.conf.

    Each button relates to a number, and running xev in terminal will show that. Now if I knew what number, in order, in this line

    pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 8 9 4 5 (picked out arbitrarilly)

    related to what function, I could edit this myself. But I think it's time to open a text editor, and start testing different settings and paste results...


    *edit:

    for an MX310 MOUSE...

    said results being:

    Code:
    settigs were:
    
    pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 8 9 4 5
    
    
    xev said:
    1 left click button 1
    2
    3 right click button 3
    4 back side button 4 
    5 forward side button 5 
    6
    7
    8 wheel up 6 
    9 wheel down 7
    (clarification: xev didn't actually say that... I listed one through nine, then clicked each button and listed it next to its respective space with notation as to what was happening)
    therefore:
    
    pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7
    Let me clarify that a little further...

    My mouse has nine buttons, so I listed 1 through nine, then drew a picture of my mouse and used xev (run from terminal) to see which button was numbered to do what. My side buttons were scrolling, numbered 4 and 5, and I knew that I wanted the wheel to scroll, so I noticed that 6 and 7 were my scroll wheels, and hey, when I scrolled, I was going forward and back in web pages, so it was simply a matter of moving the numbers around to the right places.

    and now things are groovy

    HOT DANG, I FIGURED SOMETHING OUT~!!

    GOD I LOVE LINUX! TRY THIS IN WINDOWS~!!! no wait, I'd not have had this problem in windows... oh well, GOD I LOVE TINKERING!!!!


    I hope this will help everyone who is having problems, and thank you detyabozhye for this whole thread!


    *edit:
    not sure why I worried, but I rebooted just to see what would happen, and no x failure this time, and all buttons are working.
    Rebooted, and all was swell.

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

    hey,

    I got a question: will this work on a notebook? does it automatically switch between the touchpad and the mouse? will it still boot without problems?
    on my desktop-pc i'm having troubles booting if my MX500 isn't plugged in, so i'm wondering what will happen if i boot the notebook without the MX500 plugged in.

    thx.

    Hello detyabozhye!

    This is really a great thread, though it took me some days to read all of it. Thank you for all this work.

    What I needed in addition to section one of your first posting was posting 369 from zorglab in this thread. Maybe you can copy it or repeat the link in your tutorial.

    Moreover I found it worthwhile to read these manpages:
    Code:
    man xor.conf
    man evdev
    man synaptics
    man synclient
    man mousedrv
    Perhaps you can also include the firefox-horizontal-scroll-hint, because it has been asked over and over again.

    Thanks a lot

    To all the Gutsy users: This tut is quite outdated by now. It's recommended you use the mouse autodetection evdev configuration now, it looks like this:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "evdev"
            Option "evBits" "+1-2"
            Option "keyBits" "~272-287"
            Option "relBits" "~0-2 ~6 ~8"
            Option "Pass" "3"
    EndSection
    and the serverlayout section for the mouse should look like this (It cannot be corepointer!):
    Code:
            Inputdevice     "Configured Mouse" "SendCoreEvents"

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

    So I replace this code
    Code:
     Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"evdev"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Name"	"Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse" #this should be the name of the device which I made bold here.
    EndSection
    With this
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "evdev"
            Option "evBits" "+1-2"
            Option "keyBits" "~272-287"
            Option "relBits" "~0-2 ~6 ~8"
            Option "Pass" "3"
    EndSection
    during the tut?

    Thanks! Worked for me with a Logitech V150.

    My mouse seems to be much better behaved now.

    The autodetection configuration works too.
